MKS GR9 platforms on both of my road bikes with toe clips and straps. Sheldon Brown said that MKS GR9 pedals are the last true platform pedals. 46,976 miles, no problems.
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
2 tablespoons oat bran
2 tablespoons milled flax
1 tablespoon crushed walnuts
A few knocks of cinnamon

I enjoy cycling and shooting, but not simultaneously :) I load most of my own ammunition. The challenge is to punch holes in paper that are as near each other as possible. Like initial cost of...
We shy away from mentioning the "F" word in public. Bad juju.
I have a Fuji Newest aluminum bike with the old 8-speed Sora. The bike has a little over 23,000 miles on it, and I still ride it often. My experience with Sora 8-speed triple gearing has been good....
My distance and speed decreases when the temperature is below freezing. Air density increases as temperature decreases. Your frontal area increases as additional layer of clothing are added. Also,...
Toe covers will help. Also, look at Walmart or a sporting goods store for chemical toe warmers. One version of them has an adhesive side so the the warmer adheres to the bottom of your socks.
Cold (relatively speaking), overcast, and windy, but it was a ride.
Two road bikes with one helmet per bike.
Merry Christmas from Louisiana
To answer the OP's question, in my experience, this is not a common occurrence. I don't use clipless pedals, but I do wear cycling shoes for the stiff soles. I have not experienced any of the...

Glad that you're OK and that you've lived to fight another day.
Perhaps a Viking funeral to honor the old Giro for its loyal and efficacious service?
Academy Sports usually has some inexpensive shorts and jerseys that will get you started.
I'll shift a little early in order not to run out of steam.
Until about about two months ago, I rode a lot in northwest Arkansas, lots of hills. I got to be a better climber by riding lots of...
Don't forget about a good tail light or two and a reflective vest. Best up front is a bar light plus a helmet light.
When I was riding a lot of night rides, I used two PB Superflash and a Hotshot. Worked like a champ. My friends told me that I appeared to be like an ambulances going down the road.
Faced with a similar need, I went to Home Depot a few years back and bought a Husky brand "7-Piece Metric Hex Bit Socket Set Deep". This set happens to have socket ends for 3/8" drive. My small...
Try a different cassette. The 11-tooth small cog is pretty small unless you're going down a mountain or have a huge tailwind. 12-30, 12-32, 12-34. A cassette with a larger big cog than the one you...
When the air temperature was less than or equal to 32, I used several articles of clothing. Most of my cold weather rides were after-work, recreational rides in darkness. You may find that for the...
High around 78, low around 46 forecast for our area today. I lived in St. Charles, IL, for three and one half winters. OP, you have my sympathy. Hang in there.
I've had good luck with the Cannondale Synapse, carbon fiber version, for 40+ mile rides.
