- Pedals, allen keys etc – do they ever match?
This “sport” never fails to amaze me with its ability to throw constant technical niggles at me.
So I recently bought some new pedals as I wanted to try out the trail version of spds. First nightmare was having to drill the old cleats out of my shoes! Then ride around the garden and settings on new pedals feel ok. But first proper ride, it becomes clear that they are set too tight, leading to some interesting moments on slopes that became too steep to ride up. So out with my set of allen keys (sensibly carried on me) and one most be the standard size for trail pedals, surely?!? Of course not, they are in-between. Its a bloody conspiracy I tell you!! More bloody trips to LBS just to change the pedals!!!! Petrol alone is way more than the pedals.
Never bloody happens on a road bike 😳 Life used to be so simple!!!Posted 5 years ago
