you mean sidemountpedal.com right?
From the first day i saw them i thought they were a joke. I still am very skeptical.
a lot of their claims are bogus.
I fail to see how they'd reduce toverlap any less than any other clipless system.
pedal strike - If anything, i think they *increase* the likelihood of strike. they drop your foot down to the level of where your pedals are now. I don't know about you, but my feet are wider than my pedals. and if I do strike a "pedal" i don't want my feet to pop out. How do you control the bike with your feet unattached?
360 degree entry point - I can clip in pretty much anywhere in the crank rotation, so what's the big deal?
even though they say you can pull up on them, will the retention be strong enough for backpedaling/skidding? I'm skeptical.
despite their claim, i also fail to see how it sould be easier to walk in those cleats than say look cleats? they're still pretty chunky.
