I have a RANS Rocket. I use track shoes and pedals w/ straps. I used to have bike shoes w/ clips for an older Linear LWB that I traded in for the RANS Rocket. Those shoes hurt so much that this time I decided to go back to jogging shoes and pedals w/ straps, the way I used to ride for may years. I am 53 years old. Now after an hour of riding w/ the staps my feet hurt. After an hour and a half they really hurt! Can anyone recommend pedals w/ a flat platform, and straps that let your foot extent forward another couple of inches? ----- Or can you recommend some bike shoes (that I can also walk in). I have noticed that riding a recumbent, if I decide to use biking shoes, will probably require a different kind of shoe from a regular upright bike. ----- With a regular upright bike I can lift the pedals up and forward with my feet (inside the straps). With a recumbent I push down and pull back (inside the straps), and this tends to casue my feet to slip back out of the straps. ----- So if I get biking shoes, I want to be able to pull back without un-cleating the shoe.
