Where did my clips go?

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.

Excuse me, but do these look slightly worn to you?

They spent about 1 second examining them. Turns out the front part of the clips had been broken for a while.

Notice a difference? (I did take these on the road before taking the photo, so ignore the dirt.)

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.
