And So It Begins…

Pedals?  Who wants an omelette?!
Pedals? Who wants an omelette?!

These little babies showed up this week, and I suppose it’s only fitting that the rain started coming down as I installed them in my garage. My ‘real’ bike won’t be done for a bit of time, so I put them on a ‘training bike’ that I’ll use for now. (More on that in a future post.) In my mind I’ve been visualizing myself going through the motions of the skills I’ll be working on between now and the fall season. My ‘real’ shoes will be here next week, but I couldn’t wait, and threw the cleats on a spare pair of mtb shoes to begin getting used these wildly different pedals (I’ve only really ridden Time Impacts for the past two years. I just spent the better part of the last 15 minutes laughing at myself saying “nope, that’s not it…..nope, not there either….hmm, that’s not it either….ok, wait, nope……”

It’s a good thing I’ve still got some months ahead, I’ve got a lot of work to do.

A lot.

Those are some purty egg beaters. Whats mounting/dismounting on those things like compared to something like a SPD?

They were a little funky at first compared to my Impacts, but I’m getting used to them. It’s probably not the most efficient execution, but I’m finding it easiest to roll my foot backwards into them at this point. We’ll see how it goes.
