    TA Track Pedals with clips and straps

    Okay, so I have a set of those TA track pedals, that I was putting. I installed the clips and went to put on the straps, but the cage is waaaay too small to fit straps through. They have nothing on the MKS ones. It's less than half the width of the strap. Is there any other way to make these work. I could just go under the cages, but that doesn't seem to make sense. Any ideas?

    Water based lubricant and pliers. Seriously, it works.

    Hmm, I've only ever used water, but if lube (no, not THAT lube) works, might as well.

    Don't you think KY warming gel would have a nicer effect. I mean, it could keep my toes warm and help me fit my straps.

    That's like Serendipper (I think it was him) talking about pulling his pants down at CM, and yelling "Critical Ass!"

    Overstating the obvious.
