Ordered new pedals from webcyclery.com.
The Shimano PD-M520. I’ve already have the shoes for it – I purchased those when I purchased my bike. But now my left pedal is going out, figure this is as good a time as any to bite the bullet.
Funny conversation yesterday about shoes….
(3:58:09 PM) Vincent: new pedals come with cleats
(3:58:13 PM) Scott: ah
(3:58:14 PM) Scott: slick
(3:58:18 PM) Vincent: multi release cleats are bullshit
(3:58:21 PM) Vincent: stay away from them
Today I find this
“Among otherwise-compatible cleats, there is an important distinction between black cleats (“single release”) and silver cleats (“multi release”). The former can only be released from the pedal by twisting the heel outwards, while the latter can also be released by a sharp pull upwards and are therefore easier to use for novices. Mountain bikers occasionally refer to the multi release variety as the “sissy cleat”.
(9:44:08 AM) Vincent: the standard cleats have postive engagement
(9:44:34 AM) Vincent: they disengage at only one point
(9:44:39 AM) Vincent: the multis are, well multi
(9:44:50 AM) Vincent: so counting the upwards, they release at five different points
(9:44:55 AM) Vincent: OH THATS NOT CONFUSING
(9:46:10 AM) Vincent: I think its fine if you have issues with the black ones to swtich after you get the concept
(9:46:29 AM) Vincent: but starting with the mulitis will just make you gunshy and stupid about it
