Clipless is unique to road biking?

Drat, I guess I was ripped off when I bought my mountain bike shoes and pedals

Same thing.

Me. I'll eventually do clipless, but not for a long while. Platforms just make it so easy.

I like the Shimano 540's on my MTB. Easy in, easy out. As for the road, I just got Look 3.1s and they're just weird.... Freaking roadie crap....

Someone please define the difference between clip-ins and clipless. Is "clip-ins" just a made up expression for the same thing?

Well, you see, it's all very straightforward. Clipless pedals have a little clip that attaches your shoes to the pedals. The older system, clips and straps, actually have no clips, just a toe-cage to hold your feet in place, and a strap to tighten it down. Makes sense, right?

So what you are saying is that SPD pedals and something like Looks would both be clipless? I think I'll just start calling them all "clip-to's" because I'm clipped to them. There. I solved it for myself.

I think he should put a puppy in the basket. Thats the way to get the girls.

Anyways.

I have pink bar tape on one side, and I have rasta tape comin' to put on the other side.


I'll be using these four colors as brake/shifter housings on the bike.

Hot pink, white, blue, and yellow.

I want to do lime green and orange instead of the white and blue, but those two colors only come in kits. So if I kind em by the foot, I'll be switching out the white and blue.

I have this turd green post collar coming.



Some pink streamers.



Siu wants me to spray paint the pedals purple, so I'll do that.

Eventually I want to get wheels built with a yellow and pink hub, front and rear.



I'd like to do a KMC 10 speed gold chain aswell.

X if I do this, I want you to be there the first time, okay? I trust you. You are patient with me and explained things nicely so I understood.

I don't want to have Jon there. Besides - he'd take pics of me upside down on my back spinning around like a turtle trying to get up and them post them here.
