Time was when every serious cyclist used toe-clips and straps. When LOOK and later Shi**no launched their new style pedals they immediately became known as 'clipless' by virtue of them not having toe-clips. Ive always thought it a dumb name because clearly one does clip into them so they're not exactly clip free. The name also leads to a lot of unnecessary confusion for newcomers to our sport. I would like to suggest that the pedals we currently call 'clipless' pedals would be more appropriately described if referred to as 'clip-in' pedals. Ive been using the term for years but my solitary protest appears to be having no effect. Your thoughts would be most welcome.
