Too bad they composed that ad so wrong… A right shoe with a left pedal/crank???

It appears the pedal is upside down. Hope this is a sensible decision. Last pair of converters I had, the platform was always on the wrong side. As I got the things primarily so friends could ride my single speed while camping, they were mostly useless.

I’ve got crank bros mallets now, so no real need for converters for me anymore.

I’ll wait till they’re $9.99 on eBay!

Much better idea than, the other idea of converting your street shoe to clipless

Wait, you guys don’t just go to the pub in your clippy shoes? Weirdos.

spd-sl pedals are surprisingly easy to ride with sneakers, unless it’s wet out.

If you’re too drunk to ride with flat shoes on clipless-only pedals, you’re too drunk to ride home.

You know, has anyone ever thought of:
a) grinding down a regular 15mm wrench
b) buying a pedal wrench and regular pedals.

Makes life easier. I swear.

R3 Adapters have already been around for ages

I would like to see a saddle with a clip on it that attaches to a cleat on my chamois.

I have a pair for spd-sl and they work really well. Good grip, easy to use, and tough. I like ’em for short commutes and casual rides.

All great but how can I safely lock up my $10k carbon bike at the pub?
