Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

mks mini cages ??

I'm thinking of mks mini cages on gr-9s for my new pedals, anyone know how they are??

am i better off just getting full cages and straps. i've had them before and no problem but i thought these would be small and simple, but i was worried about effectiveness when it comes to skidding.

being that I'd be rocking an actual shoe (more flexible than a bike boot), I might be worried about comfort level in terms of how much of my foot (or how much of the ball of my foot) I'm using to press down on... no experience with them here...the sylvans are small enough for me

you can forget about the small clips having enough hold on your foot for you to be able to actually "pull", but skidding is also possible with platforms, so...
