    Is it bad that this has become my favorite thread to follow?
    I appreciate it but you'd be one out of the 350 million people in the country I probably couldn't sell it to (I am joking) I enjoy watching bike videos on Youtube, team GCN, who give all sorts of tips from climbing/sprinting/etc are constantly making remarks in their videos of how lucky they are saying "oops, clipped in first time" or "I didn't miss it that time" so obviously even some of the best riders in the world have issues sometimes. Just like automobiles, there are many different makes and models that all generally do the same thing. Maybe our pedal will find a niche as you do get in 100% of the time, on the first time. Just our thoughts.

    'the function are tremendous'...? sounds like you'll be looking for Pres. Trump to do a voice-over on the ads.

    and Capt Obvious would note that putting them up against every other pedal offered is exactly what you'd be doing if they come to market.
    As far as my personal mileage, I do agree that it means nothing to the pedal. I was just trying to emphasize to everyone that I'm not a ten mile a week rider, that I am dedicated to riding and love the sport of cycling. My LOOK pedals that I had used for many years, obviously never slipped. Our point isn't slipping out of them, we want to get into them on the first attempt, every time. Then once you're in that you feel secure to be able to ride as hard as you want, without them slipping. Maybe our niche might be for new riders who want to start using a clip in pedal. I probably wouldn't be able to get the President to do a voice over, but I do hope to get a good report back from Gear Junkie after they do their testing. As far as Capt. Obvious, he is correct once again.

    OMG the verdict is in. After a long summer of 3rd party testing at Gear Junkie we have our report. I have been speaking with them throughout the entire process. During that time I could see that things were going well and now the report confirms it. If you would, please take a moment to read this and let me know what you think. I have been quiet for a long time waiting for this actual written review. As I go backwards through the prior posts there was a lot of people who did did not believe that the pedals worked the way that I was trying to explain. Frankly I would have to agree, as it just doesn't seem possible that this system would hold as well as it does. Anyways I'm pretty excited about the news, let me know what you think. The review is right here https://gearjunkie.com/pitbull-clipl...tweight-review

    I didn't see anything about Roger and his sprinting in the review, so I'am a little disappointed about that. Best of luck with these pedals.

    I don't want an ugly round bar as a pedal.

    Love the design! I still like having float so I don't plan on trying them. Good luck nonetheless.

    ... bearing failure on LOOK pedal.

     photo Cyclist-LookPedal-IMG_4746.jpg

    ... granted, not by design, but it was a beotch riding home (tried slipping pedal (still STUCK) on shoe back onto spindle) and the spindle jabbed the bejeezuz outta my ankle every time I slipped.

    The "jabbiness" bothers me.

    Yay! I contributed!!!

    Here's what you need, gossamer cage that distributes weight across the shoe, using only a small considerably more "walkable" cleat, cheap, and easy to replace, as well as the clip and strap.

    Cycling shoes can be used one day, sneakers the next, depending on the ride. Rider can leave straps loose and pull out at will, or tighten the straps for serious hammering. The foot will never "unclip" under power.

    I found it extremely difficult to walk into the office or a coffee shop wearing the cleats. The cleats protrude quite far from the front of the foot, so you canít even feign a normal gait.


    ... because the cleats are a hassle on any standard road shoe.

    Your target market is exactly the type of person who'd be doing a lot of walking. An "egregious issue" is a non starter.

    This whole process has been fun and I've enjoyed answering people like you who have legitimate thoughts and concerns about it. You are correct, we were not and have not tried to design a walking shoe/hiking shoe/etc. These were designed to ride on a road bike. Where I must disagree with Adam's review, is the walk-ability. You can most definitely walk in these shoes anywhere you need to. But they are obviously not going to be like walking in sneakers. I'm going to make a short clip soon to emphasis the walk-ability. Thanks for your thoughts.

    Pitbull is a good name...you know, with the dogged determination and such...

    a lot of time and effort to build a mousetrap...not a better mousetrap, just a mousetrap.

    but, if you're enjoying the process, guess the end result doesn't matter all that much.

    https://youtu.be/vNFKi8yif2w here is a video of Roger and I sprinting together. Roger is the one that has the watt meter so he is the one that we're referencing that we were producing. Thanks.

    Design is very interpretive, and in your case you seem to not like it. In our opinion it is a very sleek, simple, and well working design. There is nothing to orientate to clip in, ever.

    Same answer as above. That's the same idea as why some people buy Cadillac and some buy Mercedes

    I appreciate the input, a broken pedal will definitely not work anywhere near like our new design that just got the testing at Gear Junkie.

    Obviously you are a person who loves a design from the 60s. Whatever works for you is what you should definitely use if that is what gets you on the bike and off the sofa, riding many miles per week.

    I will 100% laugh at anyone who uses these pedals for being an idiot. But I doubt I will ever see anyone riding them. For reasons that should be obvious to anyone not selling them who has read this thread.

    I try to respond to as many of these as possible. If that is your opinion, I respect that. You'd be a person who'd buy a McLaren over a Ferrari. It is just how life goes. There is nothing about this pedal system in my opinion that would create such a negative mindset. The pedals are round, there is nothing to orientate, the cleats on your shoe are not anything out of the ordinary as far as height/width/depth. They are not walking shoes, dancing shoes, mountain climbing shoes, they are just road bike shoes. You can easily walk in these shoes to get a coffee or snack while riding. But in Adam's thoughts at GJ they were a little difficult, which was his opinion. I'll just leave it at that.

    You know nothing about me, and your pedal looks more on the Lada level.

    Your target market is going to be doing a bit of walking.

    You are severely misrepresenting Adam's thoughts. He did not say "a little difficult". His exact words....

    You have probably 20 people in this thread who have opined that those cleats would be a PITA to walk in. And now you have an independent review confirming exactly what everyone has said.

    That's the first pedal that came to mind when I saw this thread. Apparently Aerolite now have a 30gram pedal out, lol. I'd always wanted a set as a teen... hmm.

    The pedals are the axles, and the cleats are the pedals. Would anyone want to walk around with a pedal attached to his shoe? I have an idea, how about bike shorts with saddles already attached so all you have to do is sit on the seat tube?

    I'm gonna go get some Gorilla glue and work on a Prototype.
