i have a question regarding clipless pedal strike.
given one's shoe sticks out farther to the side, front and back and with all other things being equal, isn't the angle at which pedal strike occurs going to be the same on flat ground for any given pedal?
considering the case of turning into an incline, i'm not sure how much difference a flatter pedal is going to make. it would seem that someone using speedplays wouldn't be able to turn more than someone using a look pedal. isn't the shoe is going to make contact with the ground first?
a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away they had pedal strike proof bicycles:
