Finally took the plunge and bought a set of Eggbeaters. The package I purchased from Nashbar also included a pair of Answer Impact shoes as well. I took the time to read the instructions so I got everything set up right. Question is what should I be aware of when I go out for my first ride with them. I think I'm gonna play it safe and ride the bike trail off the riverbed near my house. Is falling a fact of life or is there a trick to staying upright? I currently use Odyessy Platforms and the Eggbeaters are easy to get out of but a little harder to get in. Any suggestions appreciated.
