Are Flat Pedals The Way To Roll?

Featured

Let’s start with the obvious cost variance and flat-pedals work with most any shoes you have on foot. Then there’s walking around on cleat-ed shoes. I don’t ride a traditional road bike, never road a Tour-Of Anywhere and only race myself, I’d put flat-pedals on my Pinarello, I find them more stable and the freedom to move your feet adds versatility to your riding skills.

Shimano Deore-XT Pedals. Exceptionally Stable Platform, Superlative Grip.

Flat-Pedals allow for slight foot adjustments, analogous with a minuet gear changes. Never found any clip-in shoes very comfortable, my feet would go numb trapped in one spot. The limited reaction time sums it up for me, when I want to move my feet, I want too move my feet, instantly. Flat-pedals embellish confidence and your over all freedom of movement on the bike. The idea of feet clipped-in seems oxymoronic to the overall vibe of cycling. What’s next seat-belts and helmets?

The Jet-Boil Camp Stove. Perfect design, easy use. French-Press Coffee As Well.

I survived with a Jet-Boil living in a tent, it’s value was never underappreciated. It boils water rapidly, heats soup, excellent for oatmeal, cleans-up fast, it’s light and packs away easily. Also a French-Press Coffee fitting purchased separately. Jet-Boil makes a few different models and sizes with a wide range of functionality throughout various models so have a look to find your best fit. Jet-Boil is the Go-Pro of camp stoves. A brilliantly designed product, cutting edge, reliable and priced righteously.

Hydraulic-Brakes, A Worthy Upgrade.

Hydraulic Brakes are worth the coin. Shimano-Decore XT Hydraulic-Brake system was revolutionary for me, the delicate control and smooth contact between disc and pads is exceedingly impressive, feels like mind controlled brakes. Lightest touch applied yields a silky-smooth controlled deceleration from the highest possible speeds increasing confidence and control. The clean ascetics of hydraulic systems are preferable to wired-cable systems. Shift levers are low profile, light weight, beautifully designed like all Shimano products. These brakes function to perfection flawlessly and look great. If you have the budget hydraulic-brakes won’t disappoint, they are a worthy upgrade.
