Track Pedal Upgrade and Wed Foo

Flickr Tag Error: Call to display photo '5451196908' failed.

Clipless pedals can often be upgraded with auxiliary toeclip strap eyelets, allowing you to use toe straps for extra security.  Some choose this method on the track where a “solid feel” and efficient power transfer during sprints is desired.

Make sure to check your equipment and perform any needed maintenance before the season starts.
