Quote from: Nick on June 08, 2021, 20:11:34 pmWell it happened , I fell off my bike for the first time ever, luckily i was almost stationary and couldn't unclip my foot. Fell into a field gateway but was surprised how much of a bump it was for no speed. No one around thank goodness. Chain came off and front brake got knocked around the bars slightly, otherwise no harm.
Quote from: Slim on June 09, 2021, 13:01:52 pmImportant to set the unclipping action on the pedal so it's nice and easy, I think. The only time I have trouble is the combination of a new-ish cleat and a tight pedal. Can be a bastard to get your foot out in those circumstances, not what you want when you've got the brakes on approaching a junction or a queue of cars.

Quote from: dom on June 08, 2021, 23:10:42 pmI always thought it was a rite of passage to fall off the bike soon after introducing clip ons. Happened to me certainly! Fair play to Nick (until just now) and David's wife for avoiding that mishap!
