    Need right SPD - Portland bike coops?

    Ever have a moment when not all goes as planned?

    I rode my BIke Friday to the train station, disassembled, train to Portland, and no right pedal to be found anywhere

    I tried left legged pedaling, it is tough

    I think I can find a flat pedal. Mixed flat+SPD will be odd.

    Anyway, any recommended coops?

    SW or Beaverton is good, but at least it is all downhill to the east.

    I see Citybikes and Bike Farm

    Citybikes is what I would have recommended. They have two locations, both on SE Ankney (734 and 1914). One is really close to Universal Cycles if you have to break down and buy a new pair.

    How long are you in town? I'd be happy to loan you an old pair of Crank Brothers pedals and cleats if you still need them late this evening.

    I almost forgot, there is also a bike co-op in Hillsboro, right off of the MAX line if you don't feel like one-legging it all the way out there.

    In pdx till weds am. Hoping for SUN.
    Must be 2 bolt cleat style.
    I'll try to find citybikes.
    If I can get the part for $5 -$10, it is cheaper than return shipping

    I found a couple of pairs of flats, so it will be 1 1/2 legging it.
    Hillsdale is easier to get to than Hillsboro, but that might be a fun trip. I've done the bike/MAX to Hillsboro in the past.

    Considering 150 miles on Weds, but need the SPDs for that.

    Crank Brothers uses a two bolt cleat, but I understand it feels a bit different than SPD's (very loose). PM me if you want them.

    You could also try sending an e-mail to the OBRA chat mailing list. I bet a lot of people have old SPDs sitting in the garage.

    in retrospect .. zip tie the pedals to the bike, and anything else you have to remove, to get it to fit in the Amtrak box.

    Or Airline Boxes , that have holes in them by the time you get to pick it up at the far End.

    It was me and my own hardshell case. No place for it to fall out, so it must not have made it in. Always double or triple check that all parts made it in!!!

    Saved $5 or $10 from not using baggage service. (Roll on? No disassembly needed.) However I was chapparone to my nephew and niece, and my brother missed the intended meet in Portland, and caught us in Vancouver. So carry-on was convenient.

    Well, I got to CityBikes
    734 Ankeny only had new parts.
    1914 Ankeny had used.
    Unfortunately, no single right SPD pedals, so I got a good used pair.
    Prices seemed higher than CAT in Eugene, but they also had more diversity in modern and higher quality parts.

    Riding with one flat cage pedal and one SPD was a bit odd. I pull up at times, so I had to remind myself pull-up, don't-pull-up, pull-up, don't -pull-up... I also had to change clip-out pedal from left to right.
