These SPD pedals seemed like a good idea at the time. Clip in when it’s warm and I’m wearing my Shimano SPD sandals, or spin the pedals 180 degrees when it’s cold and I’m wearing my boots.
The problem is I want to get on the bike and go. Not turn the pedal to the proper side before heading out.
On the tandem? Double-sided SPD pedals work great. On the World’s Heaviest Fisher? Do I look like I’m in a hurry? Double-sided flat pedals: that’s the ticket.
Maybe I’ve been reading too much Grant Peterson, but there’s something to be said for pedals without toe clips or clipless mechanisms. Just get on the bike and ride.
Any votes out there?
