peddles

Postby revinR1 » Tue Jun 07, 2011 2:22 pm

I have a Giant Hybred,cyress2. Bought this bike last year 2010 basically to cruise around to local foreshore and take away on holidays etc. We`ve put a rack and child seat on the rear. Now I`ve taken to riding this bike a lot lately (just enjoying it more and more). Im going to put a set or rearview mirrors on (thats going to be a xmas present) but I was thinking of putting clip peddles on,but I wouldn`t feel good having a stack with them and my daughter on the back. I`ve seen somewhere of a duel peddle.Have people used these and what do you think.I was thinking of the days I ride into town or where every by myself for excerise I could use the clip.Then when I got my daughter on the back I got normal peddles.

2nd question. Should I just keep the peddles I got and buy seperate clip style peddles and shoes ?????

i'm afraid i have more serious news. you're in the early stages of upgraditis. the symptoms are a progressively blinged out bike and empty bank balance. you can fight this, but the treatment is intense and many people just prefer to live with the disease.
