    Power Grips pedal & strap

    I don't have it in my budget right now for good clipless pedals & shoes. Do you think that the Power Grips pedal & strap would work well on a Vision? I don't like having my feet fly off the pedals. I've been lucky so far and have kept my feet from hitting the ground, but it's scared me a bit. I'd like a little security!

    It's what I'm wearing on my Rocket and it's what a lot of people on bents use. I am trying mine out to see if I want to stick with them. I like the idea of being able to wear shoes other than my cycling shoes sometimes.

    If this doesn't work, I may go to Speedplay Frogs with cleats on my MTB shoes.

    Power Grips are pretty convenient!

    Well I do not ride a "bent" but I have used power Grips for 8 years. I ride with a broken right ankle, and since I cannot find hight top shoes in my size for clipless this is the way I go. I just use high top hiking boots. They work well last a long time.

    Thanks for responding. I may try them. I have some credit coming from Nashbar. I'll check with my local bike shop first. They seem like a good idea. I used toe clips on my road bike. I liked the extra power.

    Nashbar has some very inexpensive SPD pedals (one side platform for the street) and shoes.
    I bought the pedals for $20 and the shoes for $5. Both have gone through probably 2000 miles
    and are in almost new shape.

    I unclip and ride the platform when I'm in stop-n-go situations, but clip up in the out and open.
    Just have to remember to get at least one foot out when stopping

    Thanks for the tip. I'll watch for the sales. You have to be quick when buying their sale items. I found out that just because it was in stock when you ordered..... doesn't mean you'll get it.

    Sounds like you've hit the jackpot. Seems everything I want is still regular price. They do have some pretty tempting deals. Good luck with your purchases.....may you have no returns to make!
