Yes, mini-clips, my wife and kids use those too. I once switched them all out for clipless pedals, but after a few weeks, they all decided that they wanted their mini-clips back.sacto said:I use these.
I can still wear my regular shoes, for the times I'm doing "BRICK" training. I can also hop off if I happen to be with my kids and want to walk / run / play / etc. They work for me, it will be a long time before I get into anything with a special shoe required.
Still made, I use 'em, always afraid the They is ganna stop makin em.Matches Malone said:Just wondering. Do they even make them anymore?
I learned to ride (road) with toe clips and slotted cleats. If you came to a stop and forgot to unstrap, you'd be on the ground flopping like a tuna every time. Getting in was not all that bad when you got the hang of it...no more difficult than getting into clipless pedals today. The pedals have a tab at the back that you flip with your toe...that flips the pedal upright and you slide your foot forward. Sounds harder than it is.PCC said:I rode that bike this past weekend with my old bike with clips and straps and now know why I ride clipless. With clips and straps I have to reach down to tighten the strap then remember to release them before stopping. Not only that but trying to get the clips to come up correctly where I can get my foot into it is sometimes a PITA. When pedaling hard I have to worry about my feet slipping out of the straps as well.
Ha ha that's pretty funny. But sheet, if you think toeclips are bad, banging out this message in Morse Code has been a nightmare. My finger is killing me!Nat said:The people who do use toeclips would post pictures of them, but they don't have a digital camera yet.
