Do it again and take pictures or a video would be better. Good for you for giving them a go. Think you will lean to love them but the flat pedalers will disagree. Everyone learning clipless initially falls, so consider yourself initiated! Next fall will be at a busy intersection with lots watching. Then you will lean to unclip prior to coming to a stop.

I'm not sure which type you have but I remember my LOOKS. This slippery plastic blob on the bottom of the shoe which slid nicely on asphalt and was nearly impossible to walk with. Thank god for the recessed cleats of the spd variety.

But I also remember trying to make sure I got the alignment correct so did not tighten the screws. Well, the shoe turns but the cleat stays engaged, and engaged. Finally, pedaled to my retaining wall and stopped and undid the shoe from my foot so I could be released from the trap! Ahhhhhhhhh, memories........

You brought back memories of my first year with Look cleats, I didnít adequately tighten my cleats down, so they swiveled a bit on my shoes so learned to crank them down. Then walking down non-carpeted steps and slipping more than once. To this day I am super careful around steps. OP, beware.

13.5 for my first post-deployment ride. Five months without riding other than a stationary bike makes for a world of hurt.

24 with the wifey. Got a cut at the interface between the sidewall and the tire face and my tubeless spewed air and sealant for 5 seconds and self-sealed. Lost about 15 PSI was still enough left to finish the ride with no issues and 70 lbs left. With a tubed tire it would have been the old patch or new tube drill. Very cool.
