Kickstarter: FlyPedals Universal Clipless to Flat Pedal Adapter
Clipless pedals offer many performance advantages, but can be awkward when heading out on a casual ride. Rather than carry a set of street shoes, or try to ride your clipless pedals with your regular shoes, the Flypedal adapter turns your clipless pedals effortlessly into flats.
These adapters are constructed from aircraft grade aluminum and are drilled to accept any pedal cleat, so they work with every major brand of clipless pedal on the market.
The pedals have a claimed weight of 194g and are 90x90x11mm, which is fine for short jaunts around town. The platform is smaller than your average mountain bike flat and the pedal height is higher, but those small complaints pale in comparison to the convenience.
