In road cycling, your feet are critical inputs for the pedals. Custom shoes for custom pedals are suggested.
Although it is tricky to find a rental shop near a trail, it's possible. Rentals can go from $40 to $100 and not all rentals are beaters. Sometimes they're samples of high-end bikes. But if you're going to invest in a bike, here's what to keep in mind: Everything is separate, from frame, to brakes, to tires, to suspension to saddle. And you get what you pay for. Expect to spend no less than $2,000 for a good ride. And it goes up from there. When it comes to bikes, wheel diameter, height, frame, and weight are important. Then, brakes and suspension. Invest wisely.
