If I'm interpreting correctly, I'll have to say right.

Damn, really? If someone went through all that trouble, you may as well keep it.

left foot foward while trackstanding (with front wheel turned to the left) and descending/coasting.

right foot stays clipped in when I'm stopped.

so both, I guess.

Well, the link I supplied earlier shows:

About Chocolate Foot

This is a mountain biking site. I, and others like me, needed a place to keep bike related stuff, so I it just might as well be online.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, your chocolate foot is whichever foot you lead with when you ride.

Left foot.

I guess that it started when I was 6 years old and riding a frame that was WAY too big for me. To stop I would pull up next to the curb and put my right foot down on the curb, so I always started with my left foot. I'm guessing that me using the left foot first is purely a product of which side of the road traffic is on in the US.

Ah, I didn't click on links. I thought there were a lot of links on fruit cakes (the edible kind, not the nut cakes... but that didn't come out right).

I put my right foot down if I put a foot down. My left foot stays clicked in. I tend to keep my feet clipped in until I get off the bike or I recently fumbled a click in and I want to practice.

Jeez, who figures out this terminology. I need a new dictionary lol.
