Thanks AlyS, Thanks for the speedy response. I think I like the idea of the T241s, so I have the versatility of clipping in or not -- it's curious that those are $20 more expensive than the ones with clip-ins on both sides. But it's not a deal-breaker. As a beginner, which would you reco? Clip-ins on both sides (so I don't have to rotate the pedal to clip in) or the ones with clips-in on one side? Also, the convo you passed along doesn't mention much about the shoes themselves. Do you have any recos for a comfortable, supportive shoe (size 9.5/10), that I could also walk around in a bit, that would be compatible with the 2-hole cleats? Thanks again!

I've been leisurely cycling for eons and have an old Trek 820 hybrid (currently with street tires) that I love. With gyms closed, I've upped my cycling game from 2-5 miles a day to 15-20, so I'd like to explore biking shoes/clipless pedals to get a little more pedal power...and a little less strain on my feet (I typically wear barefoot shoes, so very little support).
I'm doing almost exclusively streets and paved trails, with the occasional dirt/gravel trail. But no real mountain biking. I do occasionally like to bike to a destination, so I'd like something with recessed cleats to walk around in without doing damage.
Looks/style are secondary to comfort and benefits. But I'm a total newbie to the clipless thing, so I'd like to start with a setup that's reasonably user friendly to get used to.
Thanks in advance for your guidance!
