you try to turn your heel inward?

I finally dumped the CB mech today for some new 545s...which seems to be the pedal of choice for me throughout the years.

I can't believe how much easier it is to get out of them since I can get out "both" ways again. Hopefully there'll be less stupid slow-speed crashes with these. The lack of "heel in" release with the crank brothers has screwed me up quite a few times.

Maybe it's a limitation of my shoes, but I've owned 3 different pairs of shoes since I've been using these things. The sheered axle made the decision to move on easy enough for me (I've broken 2 axles, bent one, bent the mech a few times, on all the CBs I've owned).

I did a ride today and I feel like I am finally "set free". Feels so nice to unclip for a turn and then just have to put my shoe on the pedal without having to try and "roll" my foot forward into the mechanism.

Not a big fan of crank brothers pedals. I have a set of Candys with a sheared axle(pedalling uphill) that have an RA number and are waiting to be sent back. Busted them three months ago. I am in no rush to send them in or get them back. SPDs for me...have never let me down.

I have never been able to click out of any pedal by moving heel in except in a crash. Just not the way my body moves.
It doesn't happen often, but when it does, my CBs don't let me do it.
