Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I wear 8 and small clips get the ball of my foot right over the pedal spindle. Medium works better for my waterproof boots, so I still have med on one of my MTBs.

I used to use large clips because I liked to sink my feet (size 10ish) in a little deeper. Less power in the pedal stroke, but more confident stopping.
