Just tested the shoes on the road (well the empty trading estate next to where I live) and they are brilliant! Didn’t even fall off (apologies to the bloke waiting with a video camera – where did he get that idea?). I can’t say for definite whether they have been set up correctly (see earlier post) but they feel good. I feel part of the bike which is strange. There was quite a bit of movement once the [I really do wish I had the vocabulary to talk about these things with some precision]… cleat (?) is clipped into the pedal – it’s not rigidly fixed into the pedal at all. This makes sense as your feet do move while completing the circle. Unclipping (the bit where you fall off!) was not too difficult; think of what Dorothy did in the Wizard of Oz with her red shoes – that’s what I had to do. I presume this is the correct technique; moving the heel inward rather than outward. Someone correct me if I am wrong. Clipping the mechanism into the pedal itself was not too difficult; it is akin to docking a, err…. something that needs to be docked (think Space Shuttle into the International Space Station on a very small scale). It wasn’t necessary to fumble around trying to find the correct place to put the shoe, it seemed to naturally aline itself. Very, very happy; a sentiment that guarantees that tomorrow morning while I cycle to work I will, at some point fall off….
