    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Bob Ross again.

    Yep. Over the years I've gotten better at getting into them in traffic than toe clips.

    Ok, now that is funny!

    i will mount SPDs today because my winter boots use them. My religious fervor has waned over the years.

    FWIW, I know for certain I use as much of the pedaling circle as I can. Probably not all the time, but I work on it when riding tempo. I’m not gifted nough to race, but I practice making circles, keeping a quiet upper body, maintaining my line and many other racerly things. You may call me Fred.

    I've used SPD pedals and wore mountain bike shoes on my road bike. It was nice to be able to walk like a normal human being while off the bike.

    I have since moved to Speedplay pedals with the cleat covers on my shoes though.
