Anyone use MTB shoes & pedals on their road Gunnar? If so, what kind? I'm thinking ease of walking while off the bike? :D

Greets, I raced CX last season on Crank Brothers Candy SLs (team sponsor deal) and loved them with Shimano mtn racing shoes; now running them on my Crosshairs for roading & occasional commuting with Adidas Gran Corsico touring shoes- great combo; may go ahead and get a set of the Quattros for a little additional stability for touring & road riding. The Quattros actually come with a three hole adapter for Look style mountings (easier to walk in than std road cleats), or you can get the standard MTB cleats for the recessed MTB style soles. They take a little getting used to: the entry is easy once you learn it, but there isn't a firm click like SPDs, exit is silky smooth.
All IMHO of course, everyone is different.
Cheers,
Tom

Sounds like a sweet set up. I'll see if I can find the shoes in my size (10).
Seems like sometimes the shoes I like are available in size 4 :roll:
I've read some nice reviews on the Candy pedals too. Thanks!

I have Shimano SPD mountain bike pedals on all of my bikes including a Gunnar Sport (m-540's) and they have always served me well. As for shoes, I just picked up a pair of Keen's Commuter sandals from REI (nice way to spend my dividend) and they are great "walking around shoes."
