Toe Clips dont work, how about Power grips?
I have a 2003 Specialized Hard Rock that gets ridden to school (1-2 miles each way) and on the trail a lot. I just bought toe clips and they work fine with the running shoes I always ride with on the trail, but my Dr Marten boots that I almost always wear otherwise dont really fit into the toe clips. I wear a size 12 shoe and the toe slips are barely big enough to get the shoes into and then when I do, the boots hit the top of the clips as soon as I get in and I cant get enough foot on the pedal. I like the feel of the toe clips, but they do not feel like they are going to work out.
Clipless are not an option as I am not going to switch shoes for 2 mile rides and I really dont want to spend the money anyway, so I am not looking at clipless platforms either.
Will I suffer the same shoe width problems if I get a set of Power Grips? Any other options?
