    You can set them so it's impossible to pull out even if you *do* twist your foot. Until I got them dialed in, I could get into situations where I had to take the shoe off and lighten the preload.

    I'd post an ad in local bike shops, maybe email the contact on a few large clubs such as PAA.

    What sizes are the bikes? I'd be interested in a tandem for a short captain (48-50 cm in front).
