I've been cycling for about 4 months now and I must say I've found it to be quite addictive. Well I had lunch with a best friend of mine and she cycles as well and informed me that she had bought some cycling shoes and told me how much of a difference she feels when she uses her shoes. So I went to my neighborhood R.E.I store after doing some web research and found myself interested originally in the Shimano RO76. The sales lady informed me that since I was taking a cycling class that the RO76's probably wouldn't be the best ones since they have a slick bottom and I could possibly slip. So she recommended the mountain version, the MO76, exact same feel just a tread bottom so I can walk with the shoes.

I tried them on and they felt perfect I would recommend for those interested get a size up. I normally wear a size 10 in womens, which is a European 41, I had to get a 42 to give myself some comfortable room and that is even with cycling socks on.

Only gripe I would have is that after cycling for about 30-40 mins at the tip of the shoe, your big toes might become a bit sore. I've heard this from other cyclists as well who wear cycling shoes in general not just with this particular model.
