MKS GR9 Clipless pedals!! Check it!

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

MKS GR9 Clipless pedals!! Check it!

Introducing the new prototype GR9 Clipless! They're super easy to get in and out of. Alls you need is a 15mm pedal wrench and a repair stand that will rotate the bike 360 around the pedal's hub. So quick! So easy!

Sometimes sarcasm can be so difficult to convey on the internet.

I like them this length because it minimizes toe-over significantly with very little loss of shoe-to-pedal surface area.

Like Tap said, there's a fine line between clever and stupid.

I love all you Hatian Haters from Hateville. I hope your manhood seems bigger to you guys for putting someone down on the internet behind a veil of annonymity. I appologize for the ill-conceived joke. Didn't mean to get your hopes up for an eye-opening, thought-provoking, mind-blowing thread. Terribly sorry. I'll remember no-one likes to have any fun around here the next time I get a goofy idea. Maybe I can find a community who supports each other (even on, granted, silly threads) and will enrich my life as a cyclist. Anyone know any friendly, supportive forums where perhaps a joke can be appreciated without the requisite flame-fest that inevitably follows on here? Just wondering if such a place exists. Sorry if I seem a little touchy, I just get tired of all the Debbie Downers and "youshouldspendyourmoneythewayithinkyoushouldoryousuck" types on here. Why is everyone so cynical these days??

yeah maybe a little larger (maybe go from MKS S to M), but not much more...a good position on pedals is when the widest part of the shoe is over the spindle, so that extra centimeter would help...those fat shoes don't help either heh.
