    Who Makes Quad Gate Clips?

    I'm looking for some quad gate clips to go with a set of Wabi double straps. I wanted to get the All-City nylon ones, but they're sold out everywhere. I'd prefer nylon/plastic, but if there are any good cheap metal ones I'd consider them too. What's out there?

    They look like they're made by the same manufacturer and just rebranded. I know Soma stuff can be hit and miss.

    probably because they don't make a scraping noise when they hit the ground, don't really snap and because they're inexpensive

    Yep. I wanted to switch to double straps because they look a lot more comfortable, and I don't mind the plastic clips I have now, so I figured I'd just jump up to plastic 4 gate ones.

    I ride the Soma ones on my bikes with clips/straps, and I like them a lot. Plus they're easy to find at local bike shops.

    It seems like quad clips are nice for people upgrading from single straps to doubles. If you had doubles already, maybe some regular steel toe clips would work fine.

    Same as all-city/soma. The quad gate clips hold your foot nice and snug but can dig into the top of your foot depending on what shoes you wear. An alternative could be the same clips but double single gates. I've never had any clips break on me (forget scrapping on the ground, you should be in them!) but they seem a bit sturdier/stronger than mks.
