My question tells you that I'm quite the novice when it comes to serious road cycling. Anyway, 'ere tis:
I just purchased my very first set of clipless pedals, the Shimano SPD-520, as recommended by my favorite local bike shop. Because it's still winter, I've only used them on my trainer a few times. They feel pretty good, and I'm anxious to use them for real as soon as the snow melts. Also, they will be used on my upcoming, multi-month tour, beginning around mid-May.
I'd like to hear of any tips, tricks, suggestions, , etc, for learning/using the pedals properly. Also, any info regarding maintenance and especially to what extent they can improve one's performance. Any info whatsover. . ..
