Finally made the move to Speedplay
I've been having more trouble getting unclipped from my beloved SPD-SLs lately. I hate getting old.
So I decided to give Speedplay another try. Went to a great little bike shop in Dunnellon, FL (we've been in FL for 1.5 months) -- Blue Run Bicycles
. Talked to the owner about my unclipping problems and told him I was thinking about trying Speedplay again. You may remember my unhappy experience with them in 2005/6(??).
He suggested either the Zeros or the Light Action. He explained the differences and I opted for the Light Action. He gave me some great tips and the daughter (former bike shop owner) of our upstairs neighbors gave me some helpful tips too.
Took them for a short 13 mile test ride yesterday. Practiced clipping and unclipping while riding by the cow pastures onthe way to the Withlacoochee Trail. I figured if I fell, the cows wouldn't laugh.
Didn't have any problems clipping in or unclipping.
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. - Psalm 103:8
