The more I ride the Roubaix, the more I'm leaning away from the idea of eventually going clipless. This is 99.9999999999% due to the implant in my left wrist. On the City of Angels ride in May, I saw a cyclist ahead of me collide with another and fall to the right. She was up and riding again faster than I could count to 3, but as she rode off I noticed her flexing her wrist as if she had injured it. I thought of my wrist with the implant and I know it would not take a hard fall; I'd most likely lose the implant -- which is no longer available -- and require surgery to fill the space or fuse the adjoining bones. So, it just seems sensible to stay on the safe side and make a choice in favor of my wrist rather than going clipless just to go clipless since that's what "everyone" does.
However..... I'd like some nice platforms for this bike to replace the big clunky black rubber ones w/reflectors that the LBS put on the bike when I bought it.
Anyone have any recommendations that:
- Will keep my feet in place but not lock them on the pedals
- are good quality but reasonably priced
- are light weight
- look good
