Newbie here. What would be a good setup for cross shoes and pedals that would work for road rides too?

I'm going with Mavic "Razors" this season. Great fit, super comfy footbeds, stiff (enough), light (360g), "Contragrip" sticky durable rubber sole, come in dark silver or "euro-bling" white.

I've used Sidi Dominators with Crank Brothers Candy SLs both on my 'cross bike and road bike. It's worked out pretty well for me.

I've heard good things about Time Atacs, too. I might actually try those next.

Thanks for the help, one and all!

I use eggbeaters and Sidi Dominator MB shoes. I use them on my road bike for training. They are more comfortable then my road shoes.

I use my Pearl Izumi mt bike shoes with egg beaters (same as my Mt. Bike) on my Bianchi. I've used my Bianchi for everything from commuting to road training with no issues. Actually I never notice I'm in Mt. shoes and eggbeaters while I'm out road training.

Don't laugh BUT I tried a set of the Bebop pedals & I love them. They are easy in and easy out. The cleats work with the 3 hole Look (you have to buy an adapter )configuration or the two hole Shimano set up.

The don't have as big a platform as other pedals and that might be a problem for some folks.

The one issue that has to be dealt with on the Bebops is that the cleats can be a chore to get mounted and adjusted correctly. That's just their track record. I drilled, cut and had to mess around with them for a day or two before they got dialed in.

I bought an extra set cheap on Ebay for my road bike.

Good question. On the bike I am setting up, I will go with Shimano XTR pedals. I currently have some Shimano MTB shoes (clipless) but they are starting to be worned out. I will be upgrading for sure myself. Looking forward to some of the suggestions that will be hopefully shared here.
