Me, that is. I'm such a tool. Yesterday morning I wiped out on my right side after slipping on ice on my fixed gear.
This morning, I got back to work from my morning ride at the same time as a girl I work with was walking into the parking lot. So, I'm riding slowly around the lot, and we're talking about whatever. I'm going very slowly, not concentrating all that much when suddenly, I turned a little bit and the bike stalls.
It leans over to my left side and I tried to pull my left foot out of the toe straps but failed. I landed on my side and broke the mirror on my drops. I felt pretty foolish.
"Are you all right?" She asked. "Yeah. I just feel like a tool."
Pretty humbling couple days. Now, my right elbow is sore and my right knee has a cute little raspberry on it.
no, fixie riders have to have clips and straps, nothing else.
I'm not a fixie rider but one of my bikes is set up as a fixed gear, and since it has F/R brakes, I'm allowed right? Anyway my point was that the EB must have one of the most effortless and intuitive of pedal releases.
