I have suspected for a while that my bike clips are starting to get worn. While I was at Bloomington Cycle and Fitness checking out a new saddle I had the crew look at them.
They spent about 1 second examining them. Turns out the front part of the clips had been broken for a while.
About $30 later and I can feel a difference. I really need to keep an eye on this sort of thing. I am costing myself safety and speed. Anyway, all better now. Tomorrow I’ll take them on a 60 mile ride and will also be trying a potential saddle. For now I am happy knowing my gear is up to standards again.
*Side note. I am board member for a social media conference, @Midwest. At our conference yesterday, I led a roundtable discussion on how to get people to read your blog. I told them that based on expert research, it’s not a good idea to write long blogs. Oops! I’m going to try and practice what I preach and be more concise, unless it is a significant occurrence. Of course, if you prefer the long format, comment and let me know–I also told them to give their audience what they want.
