Im totally new to competitive cycling and was wondering what I need when buying Road shoes?
I know I have to get shoes and pedals that match up i.e. 3bolt etc. but is there something im missing? When looking at pictures of shoes I noticed on one of the reviews that there were extra steel brackets attached to the sole (exmple; around the 3 bolts) of the shoe that you never see in pictures of shoes for sale, do these come with all new shoes purchased??? I apologise for my extreme lack of knowledge on all things cycling, its been a steep learning curve!!
