If you couldn't have clipless pedals...

Toe clips with stiff soled shoes.


Once you get used to something it's very difficult to imagine cycling without them. I suppose going back to toe clips would be the simplest option.

I certainly don't fancy the flats that MTB'ers use with the huge pins - it's painful enough getting whacked by a smoth edged SPD pedal, not one with big sharp pins on. Road it would be clips and straps like I used to use, although compatible shoes would need thinking about - e.g. touring shoes should do the job.

I dont use anything. Just ordinary pedals and trainers. Then again, i'm not exactly speedy Gonzales :laugh:


I don't have clipless pedals. I use toe clips and straps, and find that my metal pedals are more than stiff enough to overcome any flex in my shoes ...

Why can't you have them?
Having been recently diagnosed with arthritis in my midfoot, I'd struggle to ride if not clipped in, foot needs to be static for comfort
