I use those on my geared commuter, with PowerGrips. On my fixie I am using MKS Sylvan Track pedals with MKS clips and EAI ErreBi single leather straps. I don't like clips & straps much.
Actually, I hate them with the white hot heat of a thousand suns.
I generally get my left foot in while I am stopped, but getting that right one in really makes me feel ********. I flip it over, try to get it just right so I can slide my foot in... sometimes it goes in on the first revolution, sometimes I'm a block down the road still trying and cussin' like a sailor.
Sometimes I just give up and ride the right foot on the bottom of the pedal.
What a STUPID design these things are. I will probably go back to Speedplay Frogs that I find incredibly easy to get into and out of intentionally and which have NEVER released inadvertently.
