  • If you must be clipped in then SPDs all day long.

    I hate walking in Speedplay and worrying about filling the cleats with dirt, etc - mine are made worse by being midfoot.

  • I must hahaha, not least because I no longer own any flat pedals.

    Yeah, that's the thing. I also don't really want to have to take pedal lube with me.

  • Flats.

  • Also far less likely to break SPD than Speedplay. I carry spare cleats around during races and audax because breaking a C-spring isn't uncommon for me.

  • Flats, then you don't have to wear cleats to the pub at the end of the day

  • These sexy utilitarian badlads

    I shit you not, lighter than almost anything, real rebuildable pedals with bearings not sleeves.

  • Whats the best way to support a carradice bag on the bars? I currently have a small bag mounted just using the straps but my brother has gifted me a larger bag (Carradice Nelson I think) that I'd like to try but I'm worried about it interfering with the canti brake cable when the bag is full of stuff.

  • I'd say Nitto m-12 for canti
