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)

Clipless Pedals with Clips and Straps - How??

I'm currently using Shimano 105 clipless pedals, but I want to add clips and straps. Has anyone here done this? If so how?

Why do you want to do this?

Must be the "sink-or-swim" method for learning to track-stand.

You want to add toe clips and straps to the 105's?... Without some serious modifications, this can't be done.

Oh wait... I just fed the troll, didn't I.

I've seen clipless + straps, but no clips.

Slotting 105s for straps can be done with a Dremel. Don't come crying to me when you ruin your perfectly good $100 pedals, though.

Never seen it with clips. A lot of trackies ride with straps though.

Some track sprinters add straps to there pedals because they have so much power on a standing start. Pedals aren't designed for guys that can lift buses with their legs to be pulling up on them at full strength. Any one not doing full power standing starts won't ever need it.

Can we get the vocab correct?

If you are riding clipless pedals the thing on your shoe is not a clip.
If you are riding clipless pedals you cannot accidentally clip out.
