Good story, Harvy! When I got back on my bike after a layoff of a couple decades I came right back to toe clips. And it wasn't easy to do: new shoes don't work with cleats and I had a devil of a time finding toe clips and straps for a reasonable price. I even had people on organized rides tell me that I really needed to get rid of "those things" and get some good pedals. Funny thing is, I use clipless pedals and shoes on my off topic mt bike so it's not as if I've never used them. I just really like the toe clips on my vintage steel. I'm used to them, they work, and they look right. Guy Taylor - Anaheim, CA
