    Retro Cyclist... need clips for old-school clip/strap pedals

    Hi. I am getting away from clipless pedals due to a neurological issue that makes them dangerous for me (temporary lack of sensation - I can't always be confident my feet are in clipped pedals and might pop out of them due to lack of control over foot/ankle.) Where can I find clips for traditional toe clip/toe strap pedals? Thank you.

    Cinelli also makes "Kink" straps for that in between feeling where you just slip your foot into a regular pedal of your choice.

    If there’s is a coordination or sensation issue with your feet, you may find toe clips to be a challenge as entry and exit from the toe clip needs to be a little more precise than a lot of the more forgiving clipless pedal systems. You might consider a simple flat, hard sole bike shoe and the cages alone.

    Thank you, hfc. Main concern is popping out of clipless due to what has improved to minor ataxia. I feel more secure with clips/straps. That said, I've been doing OK with my old Time clipless pedals...

    Hopefully this neuro stuff will be a distant memory someday not too far from now.
