    Good Toe "Straps/clips?"

    I'm looking for some really simple toe clips/straps. Any good suggestions?

    I just picked up a pair of Soma Oppy XX Quad Gate Toe Clips and Soma double straps myself.

    Oh, wow... heh, do you not like their aesthetics or what? I would recommend MKS clips otherwise..

    I really like them, they are great. I just find it hard to get my foot in the strap quickly when I want to sprint from a stop, so I was just looking for something smaller.
    Kind like

    I don't consider the miniclips with no straps "retention". Unless you are riding SS, I highly recommend something with straps.

    If you want something you get into more easily from a stand-still, go clipless, or learn to get into your clips faster, or learn to track-stand. Unless, as zoe said, you're riding SS, in which case half-clips are fine.

    If you think the Somas are hard to get into, I have no idea what to recommend -- PowerGrips, maybe? I had steel Ale clips for a while with single straps, and I would always have to straighten the strap after getting into the clip, or loosen them and then tighten them once I was in.

    metal clips are smaller height wise normally because they are made for different shoes. You have two options get a pair of shoes that fits right. or get some plastic mtb cages. They work find and are much easier to get into then my somas.

    I use a set-up of MKS/Sylvan track pedals with plastic clips and straps. They are much more comfortable than metal clips. I can also wear whatever kind of shoes I want or need to wear such as waterproof hiking shoes when the weather turns nasty. All I have to do is leave the staps kind od loose - just enough to keep my feet from slipping off the pedals.
