I am a former competitive rider getting going again just for fitness. (80's - no clipless pedals but we did have clean water and electricity during the week.) I am using Look Keo's with a Sidi shoe and I'm wondering what other guys are doing regarding a toe strap for security. Even for track muscleheads, I don't believe you're likely to pull your shoe out of that pedal wih the release set high (I've tried) but I am concerned about how much stress we're puting on the shoe itself. That little plastic ratcheting thing on a Sidi carbon does not seem very robust when I consider max-effort standing starts over and over again. I noticed that Velodrome shop in the UK sells an Exustar (Look-type) pedal with integrated straps but it's quite heavy (all steel) and seems like over-kill. Zip ties seem like a short-lived solution but that's the direction I'm leaning.
Reactions? (I looked back a ways into the archived questions and nothing jumped out.)
