    Sorry for exhuming a long-buried thread, but are there LFGSS people still active in Horsham? I moved here a few years ago and have just started riding my fixed gear bike again.

    I haven't had any of the issues with Egg Beaters (v2, with Premium cleats) you mentioned, Jezston. I guess YMMV ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    I just like to be able to clip-in without worrying about the pedal's orientation. They're fine if you're not un-clipping at intersections, but my old commute took me down Embankment and it didn't feel safe setting off in heavy traffic sometimes.

    Having said that, I ride SPD-SL on my road bikes and prefer them in pretty much every other way.

    I used to use Eggbeaters ahh hahaha what a fuckwit I was.

    How so? Seems like pretty strong words over someone's choice of pedals?

    and you can use them with most SPD shoes.

    Having said that, I had to carve a channel in the rubber pads on the soles of my Giro Republics to make room for the pedals' axels.

    I've tried SPDs, SPD-SLs (do not use these fixed please), straps, cages and platforms and finally settled on Egg Beaters as the best all-rounder for riding fixed. You can clip in from any direction (any side of pedal, toe first / heel first / just mash your foot down hard), I haven't had a single unexpected un-clipping in the 3 years I've been riding them fixed and you can use them with most SPD shoes.

    Fair enough. They're being incredibly slow to respond either way.

    I reported a scooter rider last week through Roadsafe and attached a link to hi-def footage of the incident, clearly showing the license plate of the vehicle, but the police have been in touch asking me to send them a DVD with the footage. Is this standard practice for legal reasons or something? Has anyone else had to snailmail evidence to the police for stuff like this?
