Today was one of those days… you know, one of those days that you forget something for your bike commute. Except that I didn’t realize what I’ve forgotten until I got on my bike and started to pedal. My Ibex X-ray is equipped with Crank Brothers eggbeater pedals, the ones with no platforms:
As I began to pedal, I tried to clip in… SLIP! WTF? I tried again… SLIP!!! Nothing engaged, no ‘click’ noise… I tried to clip in with my other foot… SLIP!!! WTF!!!!
DUH!!!!! I forgot that I removed the cleats from this pair of shoes and installed them on my new pair of MTB shoes!!!!! I couldn’t go back and switch shoes since I was already running late. Needless to say, my commute was a little slow today, I kept slipping and I really couldn’t stand up to pedal.
Just another mistake bike commuters make…
