|If you were running your straps properly, you wouldn't be able to pull out without loosening them. A friend of mine who used clips and straps at the track (he was the only one) would have to lean against something or roll over in the infield to pull out. But then again your vans slip-ons would probably get messed up if you did that and that would be tragic. Platforms FTW.|
Whoa there buddy. Sorry we're not VeloStars like your buddy, but thats probably just as, if not more so, impractical than riding platforms for day to day use. Sure, that might be how they do it on the velodrome, but last time I checked 99% of people dont ride with foot clenching death grip straps. Dont get me wrong, it takes me a few pedal strokes to wiggle my foot all the way in the cage because of my straps tightness, but really calm down. Dont stereotype me. I dont wear vans on my bike, I know what I'm doing and I could give a **** less how "messed up" or "tragic" my shoes are.
