You'll save money in the long-run if you wear through toe straps quickly. I bought a few sets of new straps after realizing it'd make sense to buy a good pair just once and be done with it.

Plus...

My experience is that Armadillos are garbage. While I've yet to flat on them, they ride sluggish and have very little traction. And for those irresponsible, reckless souls who enjoy skidding: I...

Isn't the purpose of rim tape to protected the tube from the spokes and edges of the nipple holes? I'm talkin' bout pinch flats (this was definitely a pinch flat - classic "snake bite" punctures).

Thanks for the help, all. Considering I run a higher PSI than some folk around here, it seems like doing it up any more will be a bad idea. Also sounds like the PSI isn't dipping as much as I think...

It is? But aren't pinch flats caused by under-inflation, not over-inflation?

Regardless... out of curiosity, what PSI do you run on the street?

Air pressure in cold weather?

I just got a pinch flat from going over what seemed to me to be a pretty small pothole. (Actually it was one of those ruts they dig in the road when they're doing road repair crap, but whatever.) ...

A couple of suggestions:

1. Make sure your foot isn't at an angle. Your toes should be pointing straight, and the angle of your foot should be lined up with the rest of your leg. (Same as when...

Good idea, but I'll save it as a last resort. I feel like there's gotta be a pedal out there similar to the GR-9's design that takes double straps. I really just want something that works well with...

MKS GR-9s vs double straps

So I have MKS GR-9 pedals and I absolutely love them. However, I'd really like to run double toe straps and the things aren't built for them.

My question:

Are there any pedals out there...

I had the flip-up tab on my MKS GR-9 snap off. Granted, this was due to me stepping on it while it was sitting on the ground before I attached it to the bike (don't ask) -- clearly, pedals aren't...
