I appreciate how long you have been riding. I am just a firm believer that everyone has an opinion about everything. Yours is 100% correct for you. ThanksWhat I said was more than opinion, it is based on 3+ decades of cycling with others. Road and trail.
Clearly you are absolutely right, we are just two guys that have had an idea of a new pedal. We have pursued it until we thought that we have it perfected. We will attempt to move on with sales as we acquire parts.There's no harm in having both feet on the ground, other than being caught off guard when the light turns. But you are in a vast minority. You've created a solution for... you.
Clearly you haven't done any market research on who you will be selling your product to.
Funny. It is amazing that people will go on and on about if you ever have both feet on the ground at any point during the ride or not. It is just if you do that it is quicker & easier to get back in with our pedals.I don't know nor have I seen anyone that rides enough to be on clipless pedals ever take both feet off the pedals when stopped. The only time I see that is when complete beginners waddle in to the bike shop with the bike between their legs.
Maybe you have not ridden in many large group rides. But in a pack of bikes it is nice to get clipped in quickly so you don't have a problem or make a problem for someone behind you.What's the big hurry to get clipped in? Even if both feet are unclipped, for some reason, at a red light, a smart cyclist is paying enough attention to traffic and their surroundings to clip in when the cross traffic gets the yellow. And then it's just a matter of clipping into the other pedal when pedaling starts.
If a cyclist isn't paying enough attention to their surroundings to know when the traffic light is changing that cyclist should probably be riding on the sidewalk and walking their bike thru intersections.
That is good but when you are at a traffic light and your one foot is clipped in (for me it is my left foot) and you push off with your left foot as the right pedal comes up, with our pedal you are able to engage so fast that you turn it into an immediate power stroke.only time I unclip both pedals is to dismount.
Yes, but I did say that if anyone had anything to say I would respond. I'm just trying not to bring up anything new. I'm just hoping to get the pedals manufactured and send out many samples across the country. Some will be going to this forum if requested.And yet he posts 4 more times.........
The original cleats were made out of aluminum and stainless. The final product turned out to be glass filled nylon with a long no slip rubber pad across the bottom. Shouldn't scratch anything.Pitbull,
On a different topic, I hope you plan of making some kind of cover for those cleats which will be wood floor gougers without them.
I did take the worries into account, we have gone with glass filled nylon with a hard rubber pad.That was covered in the other thread... and dismissed.
