S'what the scale sez...

No photochop. I've seen (and lifted) a similar bike

after enough years riding with straps and clips or step-in pedals, i can't hardly keep my feet on a flat pedal when riding. so one of my bikes wears semi-flat pedals with strapless clips:



Bruce Gordon makes the clips in a variety of sizes, even large enough to fit boots or those big-toed Keen shoes and sandals in sizes for Amerikun-sized humans.


cheers!

Now my commute is about 2 miles, and my errands are rarely more than 5, round-trip. So I have flats on the errand/commute bike, and wear the same clothes, including sneakers, I'd wear just walking around. It's nice having a bike I can just grab-and-go, the same way that I wouldn't get into special clothes or shoes to drive someplace.

My recreational bikes are still all clipless, though.

heh,... *just* 3 bikes? that's not a "problem",...

3 bikes barely take up any more storage space than 2 bikes, if you're using 2-bike bike stands,.. but that means with 2 stands, you have room for a 4th bike...
and since you already were taking up floor space for 3 bikes, having 3 stands wouldn't take up any more than 3 bikes did, and then you'd have space for 6...

see where this is going?

(just for reference, i helped a guy get his *9th* bike this weekend. since he's blind, all his bikes are tandems. how's that for a storage challenge?)


cheers!

Hehe, I hear ya!

I've got my trainer bitch (old hardtail 26'er), SS 29er, and the scalpel.

I obviously need a road bike, a commuter, dirt jumper, and fat bike to. Round out the collection. ;)

I've got a set of those pedals but not the toe clip (are they the ti ones?). I really like them, and would love to find an old set of the french ones they are modeled on.

i really like the White Industries pedals. i like a lot of their products, and they're really nice people there, too.

the Lyotards that they have the 'toe-flip' in common with seemed to have developed a reputation for breaking; i don't know how deserving they were of that, but i only knew a few sets and one of those broke.

i didn't know about Bruce making these clips in Ti; i only wanted the SS version, since i knew they were going to be getting dragged on the ground as a routine matter of course and i couldn't see spending the extra money on that. (i saw Bruce Saturday, but didn't talk much about the clips except to tell him how much i liked mine. he's not someone everyone can talk to, and not everyone who can wants to for long... but he does do some things really well.)


cheers!

We participate on a charity ride last Saturday, the problem was how to transport the tandem for 45 miles on the freeway with out having a proper tandem rack for the car (funny I do have one for my motorcycle but not for the car)..

Well very simple I borrow a conventional hitch rack and place the tandem on a angle, works perfectly tons of clearance except for the rear wheel is a little close to the ground at about 9" but still did not touch the road..


Pennytech approach so the tandem does not contact the rack.


Now we can go riding anywhere we want and with the baby too..
