I'm also tempted to commute on my Tricross and get MTB shoes and pedals with platforms on one side so that I can walk in them in the foyer etc
Mad if you don't. Tricross is made for commuting surely? Tarmac SL3 is a nice bike sure, but maybe better kept for road duties etc. Just saying.....
It certainly is made for it, but I guess I just prefer the SL3 a bit.
How far is your commute? I used a clipless setup when my commute was 30kms each way, these days I have a set of quality flat pedals so I can wear pretty much any shoe I want. it's not much work to change pedals from one bike to another if you take the commuting bike further afield occaisionally. The flats are use are the Shimano DX which have nice spikey bits to grip the sole of your shoe.
I use a set of Sidi MTB shoes with my road bike; I value being able to walk off the bike more than "looking pro" but then I'm a bit of a Fred so I'm not a good yardstick. I use Crank Brothers Quattro pedals, but I don't think they're made any more.
