So I have been enjoying my shiny 3 week old Specialized Roubaix Comp and today thought I would try going "clipless". Years ago my brother gave me a set of SPD pedals and shoes. I never used them but thought I would give it a go today as my bike seems to demand clipless shoes - looks weird with standard pedals on.
I started off with just one SPD shoe clipped in and was doing great. Then I got over-confident. i clicked in the second shoe and performed slow rotations around the driveway. However, on one lap I began to slowly turn around and through pedaling too slow, began to wobble. I instinctively went to throw down my right foot and by the time I realized i was locked in, I was falling - all 305lbs of me. It was actually quite funny but I did scratch my SRAM derailleur and a brake lever - no biggie though.
My question is - is it worth keeping on trying clipless? Should i go to "cages"? If so, can anyone suggest a decent shoe/cage that though not SPB, still give support etc for the foot?
