    Double Toe Strap/Toe Clip combo

    Hello,
    Does anyone have a photo of a Double Toe Strap/Toe Clip combo?
    I was wondering what type of Toe Clip to use?
    The toe clips that I have seen, have room for just one strap.
    Thanks in advance,
    Ray

    I saw some NJS double straps on e-bay, but they were $50!

    $50 is pretty cheap for doubles. The best ones go for $150. I saw those also, and that is what are pictured above. I think they're pretty good.

    I have an old set of BINDA doubles they were awesome. I also have an unused set for my bike which I no longer use any more.

    I am looking though for a new one. It good to found a forums with TRACKIES.

    How about just using the double straps without toe clips?

    better the clips than the straps, and those leather straps are tough as hell. i have a pair of toshis which i purchased for racing, but now i used them for both racing and street riding. i heard of a guy breaking one once, but only after 7 years of messengering, and if you know anything about that, you'll know that's a hell of a good track (pun retrospectively intended) record.

    Clips breaking is just as dangerous to break in the street. I have it happen to me personally. Straps yes but you can recover alittle. Clips with your foot strapped in has a funny feel and it is that you don't have Postive control.
