It hasn’t caused a problem until fairly recently, when I was riding with Rae on an uphill. The cleat disengaged and I nearly slammed my groin on the top tube, ala Lance in 2003! Thankfully, neither Phil Ligget nor Paul Sherwin was around to provide colorful commentary on the incident.
So, I’m switching to Look-style pedals and cleats. I’m also picking up some road tubes for our bikes and a Cat Eye HL-EL300 Headlight for those night rides. Years ago, I had a hardcore NiteRider setup. LED lights have come a long way since then! Shortly before I joined DoDots in 2000, I went for a 75 mile ride from Palo Alto to Half Moon Bay via Highway 92. On the way back, I miscalculated the amount of time it would take to get back, and the NiteRider battery ran out of power. Going up and down Highway 84 was decidely not fun that night!
