    A lot has changed. Unfortunately, that doesn't include Nightshade.

    I'd go with some light action Speedplays and adjust the float so that just the right amount of twist will let her out.

    I feel as though I must type response with arms held rigidly outward and in monotone voice.

    Maybe a few groans.

    (How does one type in "monotone voice"?)

    Hi There Jill,

    Welcome to the board. I'm sure Trojanhorse is happy that his thread has proven helpful to another. And we're all happy to hear that you're riding comfortably once again.

    Keep up the good work,

Apparently there is a little bit of a break in time for speed plays, so we put the pedals on her spin bike for a while until she got comfortable.

    Back to the graveyard with this thread.
    Glad that worked out for her!

    Surely my post doesn't require further clarification.

    I was simply asking.

    The only walking I've been involved in lately, is to the verge on the side of the road to repair what seems to be a string of rear tire blowouts.

    2 in as many weeks.

    If you can't find an especially easy pedal, you have a tension adjustment, and can let it all the way out. Also, SPD makes a "multi-release" cleat, one that you can twist inward, outward, or just pull straight back and kind of up. I think you can come up with a winning combination.
    I was going to suggest the multi-release cleat with Shimano's SPD system. I use those, and a couple of times when I've forgotten I had to unclip and just tugged hard in a panic the pedals released my foot in time to stop myself falling. With the lowest possible retention setting it doesn't take much to unclip

    I don't think I'm particularly popular with some of the Mods. Probably best if I'm not the one making the suggestion.

    I've used clipless for several years, but have gone back to large platform pedals. If you wife is not very experienced or as you indicated , has a problem un clipping, it may be worth it to consider avoiding clip less and stay with platform pedals. I have found that I and most cyclists do not use clip less to full advantage anyway.
