Well it actually wasn't that bad but the title sure grabs the attention no? Anyway yesterday I left work on my new bike with my new clipless pedals happy as a clam. About two blocks latter I stop at a light and unclip my left pedal. Wait, I twisted my shoe but no unclippage. Go to the right foot quick. I narrowly averted falling down. So I hobble onto the sidewalk and I take off my left shoe which is still attached to the bike and I hobble one-shoed back to the office. It seems that one of the screws that holds the cleat has fallen out. There I try to unclip the cleat by putting pressure on the shoe; no dice. I try the leatherman; no dice. So I finally unscrew the the remaining screw by turning the shoe around and around. Then I recommence with trying to pry it out with the leather man. Still nothing. Finally after loosening the delimiter screw all the way I am able to pry out the cleat with that trusty office implement: the letter opener. Finally I am forced to take the subway home and pedal home from the subway in my office shoes.
