Anyone one here have any experience with Crank Brothers clipless pedals? I recently got some Candy SL's and was wondering how much free play (side to side) you have when clipped in. I just want to make sure I'm all good. The manual says you have 6 degrees of side to side and can release at 15 and 20 degrees depending on cleat placement. I have them set at 15 right now but might switch to 20.

They came on my new bike. I put them right on the 20 setting and I'm loving them. They feel pretty easy to clip out of, but if I yank real hard, they hold tight. So yeah, they're good. What was the question? :lol3

Is that back one long enough to use on the front? If it is, just pull it off and use it there. No biggie. If it isn't, well, yer out however much a cable costs. Not TOO bad in the greater scheme of things. :nah Oh, and buy housing to go with that cable. Mo bettah shifting. :nod

Did you try them on the 15 degree setting? How much side to side do your feet have once clipped in? I guess 6 degrees feels like alot to me. I'm going to try the 20 degree setting. They are super easy to clip out of. I was worried they would be hard to get out of. Now I can bunnyhop like three inches.

I got them for my MTB. The reason I went with the Candy is incase I break a cleat or mount I still have a little platform to pedal.

Nah, too short. 10 bucks and it's done. Easy fix, just a dumb thing to do. :lol3
The greatest source of annoyance is with myself. I need that bike next weekend for a tri. Could I have put this off any longer?

To answer the question: always go out into the headwind. That way, you get the workout in while yer fresh. This is especially important in the winter.

DAMN IT!!! I MEANT PEDAL!!!!

I only have really one safe route for road bike riding, because it has the paved shoulder outside the rumble strips on the higway. I have to ride 10 miles to get to a paved county road, so I always leave to the north and return from the south, so my ride is usually the same. This time the north wind was only about 15 - 20 mph, but it just was kicking my butt. It doesn't help that I am 6'3" and about 235. I am still working on the losing weight thing and it is coming off slowly in inches, but my weight is staying that same, so that is the muscle which is good for me also.

I tried staying down in the drops and I even used the clip-on aero bars, but it seemed like I was pulling a kite behind me and I was at times pulling two or three of them while even going down hill.

Same situation here. When I leave the house, my choices are to hit the state highway with lots of truck traffic, 55mph speed limit and no shoulders:arg or go the other way, which is about 2 miles of gradual down hill that puts me out in the farmlands where road riding isn't a guaranteed death sentence. So, that means every ride ends with a 2 mile up hill ride to the house. :bluduh
Thankfully, my ride home is to the south, and there is rarely, if ever a wind in my face situation to deal with.
