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.
