*THE RED LIGHT FOOT BUTTON.

*

Do I even need to explain this? If you’ve even gone on a half dozen road rides in your life you know what this means. You pull up to a red light…you stay clipped in and pause…surely the light’s gonna turn…you track stand…any second now…wait for it…waaaaaait for it…nothing…so you relent, unclip, and as soon as your foot touches the ground, blink! It turns green. Son of a…! Is there a device buried in the pavement that reacts to your cleat? A magnetic trigger? Unless we dig up the street with a backhoe, we’ll never know.*

That is still better than not getting clipped out in time and using your elbow to keep the bike from hitting the ground.

I rest my left foot on my trailer arm which gives me access to a wide platform to balance on. No hand track stand? No problem!

Watch me at a stop light when I don't have my trailer. Left foot wheeling around desperately trying to find the footrest! Lol

I seldom ride clipped in when on busy city streets. I clip my Decksters on the pedals and ride with thick soled walking shoes. Did it on today's club ride because there are just too many stops and too many experience levels.
