    Just remember to clip out! It's a forced thought at first, but soon becomes second nature. Falling while you're clipped in is a right of passage - you'll do it, and it'll remind you to clip out...

    I did, and returned them after a twenty mile ride (my LBS took them right back, and I got some Grand Prix 4000 S's instead). I was replacing worn out Bontrager Race X Lites.
