Following on from the conversation abotu Flats/SPD.
I used to ride flat for a very long time and I really like them
I changed over to SPD about 7 years ago, and to be fair im still not as confident in them.
For instance I'll try the tree / plank on follow the dog with flat but not SPDs.
quick question which way do people twist their foot to get out of spd's?
To get out of SPD I've always twisted it in. Ie the heels go in.
So theres 2 movements 1 to twist the foot in then 1 to move it back out and put my foot on the ground.
I've never understood "there's plenty of time to unclip" because there isnt for me.
So do most people unclip by moving their heel outwards? This would enable one movement to put your foot on the floor.
I've tried this but I dont seem to have the muscles in my leg to accomplish this movement. esp in my left leg. I twist and nothing really happens.
I managed to get my right foot out by twisting outwards at the weekend but I had to change the angle of the cleat to make it easier for me which would obviously decrease the float and be bad for my knees on longer rides.
