Waited one Day too long in the Bomproof search

Thanks for all of the suggestions in my Bombproof Clipless thread. But it looks like I waited one day too long:

The retaining nut broke right off where the threads end leaving the pedal hanging off my shoe. Luckily I stayed up right and rolled sheepishly up to sidewalk. The rest of the six mile ride home was a great reminder of the pain of one-legged drills.

My reluctance is that I have 4 bikes and I've had matching pedals on them for years so even a cheap replacement x4 adds up pretty quickly. Makes me wish they still made the original double sided Ritcheys. I have one pair that are at least a decade old, serviceable and still going strong.

Thanks again everyone for all of the great suggestions.
