I've had my clip-less Speed Play pedals for two weeks now...and fallen twice. Now, if my math skills are any good at all I figure that's once a week...and twice more than I care to. The first time was in my drive-way last week and I didn't hit the ground, my "cat-like" reflexes took over and I saved it. But today I did hit the ground. Oh sure I was almost stopped when it happened, but that doesn't take away the complete embarrassment of a 50 year old man in Lycra pants laying in the dirt.
So, what's the "average" learning curve with these death pedals? Do you vets still have "senior moments" with the pedals? I'm to the point of being uncomfortable, that is, lack of confidence, so that when I'm riding I'm thinking about what it would be like skidding across the road with a bike attached to my feet! Which foot do you unclip first? I'm doing the left, thinking that I dismount on the left. Any other tips?
