No straps attached 2

I have switched my ratio from 44/17 to 48/17 and my clipless pedals are doing just fine. As I mentioned before, it has optimized my pedaling as well as skidding. A common misconception among riders is that using clipless pedals is more dangerous than cages and straps. Clipless pedals actually allow faster removal / release of the foot from the pedal. You just have to keep practicing the right technique and always keep your eyes on safety while riding the streets. In fact, riding fixed gear is all about being alert. To me, adding a bit of functionality (clipless pedals) to a simplicity of fixed single speed gear bike is not a crime. Viva la clipless 🙂
