Might be good for the TdF hopefuls. Like road cleats are going to make any difference at all to the casual MAMIL apart from looking like a KOM serious contender at the post ride lattes.Roadie shoes/pedals aren’t stupid, they’re efficient and comfortable on long rides and not heavy and flexy like mountain shoes. I can walk in them ok these days and most of the time clipping in is easy. I just fold under pressure at traffic lights...
No bike specific shoes with cleats is going to overly flexy anyhow.
Walking duck like in road cleats just looks to be a chore. You have to end up walking somewhere if you don't have a tour bus handy so SPDs FTW.
