Use the straps to locate the shoe on the pedal, remove the cleats. If you use ATB shoes with
a very thin rubbery layer on the sole, instead of road shoes, it works well. When I ATB I use
platform pedals and slightly loose straps and can pull out fast enough to dab when needed.
My shoes have leather soles though (premolded shoe era relics).
dwguy: as you imply the strap is supposed to go through the body of the pedal. If you can't
cram it through there, (pedals obviously noted designed for straps), then it depends on
whether the straps stay under the pedals. From the pix I suspect they will. One possibility
is a nylon zipty around the frame of the pedal and the strap underneath the pedal.
