    pedal straps

    okay, I normally keep 'em pretty loose, but I put new pedals on and I decided to try strapping down nice and tight. enjoyed the feel for the rest of the ride and didn't even think about it until I got to whole foods and went to cowboy dismount...my right foot came out, but the left one didn't. hilarity and a scraped up shin ensues.
    rock hard, ride fixed.

    pop one foot out and swing it over the whole bike and go from riding to walking your bike in one fluid motion. it involves being able to take your feet out of your clips.

    Ah, right.
    I always pop both feet out before I do that.
