    New Pedal

    New for me anyways, been running flats for the last couple years and I gotta say the improvement for me has been fantastic! I run them on all 11 of my bikes, mtb and road. I can put my foot over the center in the arch area, which for me is a huge improvement.

    Never did I think I would ever run anything but clipless, but one day I bought a pair of flats to go ride to a jogging area a couple miles away and slowly realized, I love them!

    I have a few different brands I run, this is one of them.

    Let me try and reach my overly hairy legged friend, who by the way puts out MASSIVE WATTS.

    I call him the Cavendish Doppelganger!

    We calibrated the Garmin right before the video and then zeroed it out right before the video.

    If your mind sees a Steely Dan so be it, I just see a new bike pedal.

    So do I, it would be awesome. If you're referring to earlier I already said I didn't step it all off, or anything I just made a video and that is what showed up on the Garmin.

    Up to date, no floors damaged, no stores banning my entrance. They're not harder to walk in than any standard clip in pedal, as they're only about 9/16th of an inch high, which is basically the same as other pedals. I guess if you pirouetted on someones beautiful wood floor you'd definitely make a mark.

    Like others have mentioned, I didn't make the video correctly and I had Roger sitting down. Obviously in a total sprint your butt would be off the saddle and you'd be getting after it. My bad, my bad.

    I use flats like this on my mountain bike. On my road and gravel bikes, I'm sticking with my SPDs.

    New Pedal

    I hear you, factory feel. Iíve always run platforms on my road bikes. I donít race, so power and wattage isnít a concern. Iíve never had problems with grip either in or out of the saddle and I like the comfort and freedom of using whatever shoes are handy. Iím a fan of VPs myself because they have a larger footbed for my size 12s.

    awesome, I run race face atlas, spank spikes and shimano saints as well.

    probably the best change I've ever made.
