So after my sore left toe thread and the subsequent discussion and advice here, I went out and bought these:
Along with these:
Then, went to my LBS to get these installed along with helpful hints. After a few practice, I went outside my driveway and clipped on my left shoe, but lost balance and fell flat on my left side. I didn't even move an inch forward! Now, I have a sore and bloody left knee. I say, better now than later out in the public. I only had my kids and wife laughing at me:
But, all in all I got used to it very fast and had no problems getting out of them (did many stops). I had one light to contend with in my neighborhood and managed. Though, as I was accelerating I did stumble a little to get my right cleat in. THEN, as I was relaxing and getting ready to stop with my right cleat off I fell again on my driveway!
BTW, on the way back there's a real nice stretch of a road (~ 300 yds). I felt pretty good, and accelerated, and around 75 yards in I passed a police radar that clocked me at 28 mph (whatever that means).
