    My journey with my 105 pedals and cleats.

    So as I am a nuub to most of cycling and especially road cycling I was kind of apprehensive of clipping into my pedals. At first it was a bit awkward, but after clipping in and out of one foot then doing the other in my living room to get a good feel for them I figured it was time to try them on a ride.

    One of the first things I remembered from watching someone else who was new to them was NOT to clip both in at the same time. Sounds like common sense, but as I thought about it I more than likely would have tried the same thing. They clipped one in then the other then they were on their side.

    So after getting one in I started getting momentum up while trying to clip the other in. It took a min or too, but after I did man did it make a difference. My quads are working at a more even pace and I am not getting as much fatigue in one leg vs the other as I was with my other pedals.

    For anyone getting a set just remember to start building momentum so you don't hit the ground.

    Hey there Zeerith!

    Nice to know that you're adapting to your new found sport. Those pedals are really something else aren't they?

    Don't worry, after about a couple weeks or so of riding, you'll get used to them. Sometimes, getting out of them in an emergency can be a challenge too. You've just got to practice!

    I really do hope you're enjoying yourself, Zeerith!

    Happy Trails...
