I was able to carfefully ride home and threw on my clips and straps. My shoes were 2 years old so I got my $40.00 worth.
Lucky you! I was 3 miles from home and steep hills all the way down. I had to emergency brake it by placing my left shoe up on the tire and seatstays to get me home!
*edit* Just got off the phone with sixsixone. Pretty good customer service. Shipping them to them directly for a replacement pair. I'm seriously going to have to be more careful and not pull up as hard with the new pair. I'm sure it will be better on my knees as well.
