First day with Clipless Pedals
Finally sprung for clipless pedals for the MTB commuter. Made it to work and back (10 miles and several stoplights) with no falls yet...though I am sure it will happen more sooner then later.
These are the shoes I bought:
And the pedals:
I cannot believe the difference that having clipless pedals make....should of done this a long time ago.
Yep. Especially climbing out of the saddle. Even on my studded, hybrid tank, having clipless pedals and bar ends is a thing of beauty. I managed about 5 or 6 years before my first clipless-related fall a few weeks ago.
As a learning technique, I recommend -- once the ground softens up a bit where you are -- riding onto some soft grass and just falling over clipped in, preferably in front of a large crowd.
not a role model
If you like it already, you're sure to become much more addicted to it.
