Many here know that I'm dead set against clipless pedals for use on the street. I firmly believe they present a real and present danger to the cyclist and those around hit/her when clipped in.
So I thought it might be interesting to go out on the net to gather others opinion of clipless.
For better or worse here is a random sample of what I found......
"Gardai Sergeant Donal Prendergast, who attended the accident, noted that Mr Thackaberry was not wearing a helmet and also said the fact that he was wearing cycling shoes with clipless pedals may have contributed to the accident, saying, “I would believe he wasn’t able to get them [his feet] out quick enough. I believe it was a contributory factor.”
