At first I only used them on a bicycle path where I never needed to stop. I could practice unclipping but if I failed I could just keep riding. Never would need to stop unexpectedly. I have never fell over. I have come close a few times. Funny enough those times were mostly when I wasn’t riding and had one foot on the ground but somehow managed to start falling the direction of the foot that was still clipped in. Managed to get my other foot unclipped in time to avoid falling over. Lucy Bowden says: December 1, 2013 at 7:00 pm Hello!

Liz Marie says: December 1, 2013 at 8:51 pm Been thinking of getting better pedals and shoes for my road bike. Are these shoes made of leather? Looking for good shoes made of non-animal products… Tszeecous says: December 1, 2013 at 9:07 pm Thanks. Been wondering about those fancy pedal shoes for years. Maybe it’s time to trade in my toe cages and stop falling over at every stop. Adam Bruss says: December 1, 2013 at 9:28 pm Never crashed. Just tipped over to the side at an intersection once. Jeremy Bell says: December 1, 2013 at 9:31 pm I remember falling down at intersections. No big deal. Pretty much everything you learn at first has to come with a period of embarrassment.

Robert Pettitt says: December 1, 2013 at 11:19 pm I have both types, what about the float you get with road cleats? Helps my knee problems. Love the vids btw, started on the 811 coz of you 😀 Sensei Nyziko says: December 1, 2013 at 11:29 pm I bought a pair of road shoes with my first bike, they told me in the bike shop that thhey are better on the long run, if im going to ride or train for more than 1-3 hours i should have road clips, its more comfortable for the feet they said. What are your thoughts about this? Just to sell or do ey have a point? I think they are pretty comfortable and stable, but i still can get pain under my feet where the pedal is. Many thanks sushi77 says: December 2, 2013 at 12:06 am i still “crash” once a year, falling is a part of cycling. bincepilot says: December 2, 2013 at 12:06 am Sorry, I meant thongs, not things! bincepilot says: December 2, 2013 at 12:54 am Things on your shoes!!??

Becky C says: December 2, 2013 at 1:28 am What do you recommend mileage wise for starters? durianriders says: December 2, 2013 at 1:31 am 100% synthetic. Jamie Vesely says: December 2, 2013 at 2:05 am Almost the same set up I have! The shoes are very comfortable! 🙂 Pushups Are Bananas says: December 2, 2013 at 2:38 am thanks man! durianriders says: December 2, 2013 at 2:50 am Ive used both the xtr 970 and 980 as my exclusive pedals on my training and racing bikes. Ive a pair of 520 on my commuter and have found the bearings have worn down quicker with less miles though. XTR have a good warranty and one time my pedal got sloppy I sent it back to shimano and they serviced it for free. Another time they just sent out a new pair of pedals. The 520 pedal is a great value pedal though. I also recommend it if people are on an extra tight budget. Nick A says: December 2, 2013 at 3:06 am Shoes with recessed cleats are fine if you want to walk any distance but those of us who want go out on our bikes to cycle and not walk (there’s a novelty) – road pedals are superior to the MTB pedals. You get better purchase and power through the pedal, you get a firmer hold and generally the set up is lighter. If you get Speedplays you get ‘float’ – that allows your feet, knees to fall naturally into position instead of being fixed and you can clip in from both sides. Captain Kirk says: December 2, 2013 at 4:04 am shimano A520 road pedals with a pair of entry level shimano spd mountain bike shoes will do the job. Captain Kirk says: December 2, 2013 at 4:26 am spot on review, dont buy road shoes and walk around like a pregnant duck with plastic cleats that need replacing every 5 mins, buy mtb shoes, shimano shoes are good because they are nice and wide, you can get one sided pedals that look like road pedals but clip in the same as mtb pedals, shimano make them for around 25 pounds. exsxpx1 says: December 2, 2013 at 4:27 am get some touring pedals, with a platform on one side.
