What's wrong with SPDs?
well you dont see steve peat wearing them do you!
actually, quite a few of the downhill riders do. I think Gee atherton wears spd's (or an equivalent).
It's more gay that you're scared of being clipped in
Plus, when commuting mainly on roads SPD's are ace. I hate using flats for commuting. My MTB has flats though, personally I haven't got the balls to hurtle down a muddy hill clipped to my pedals
This is steve peat
that coulde be it! i like to put or know i can put a foot down as and when i wish!
and they look gay
You look gay
Thats spot on to be fair.
I've just bought flats and Shimano shoes for my MTB, for that very reason!
Being clipped in for road use is fine as long as you read the road ahead and can unclip in time. When I use the SPDs on my mountain bike I get scared and I have come off a couple of times too.
Bird, rabbits, cars, wheels and now bikes.
Just think if each of thoese subjects was in there seperate threads and each one trailed off in to random talk.lol
thats the fella! OUCH! that stack at 2mins has got to hurt!
Yeah, i reckon that hurt a lot. lol
If we're talking cool downhill clips though, this wins hands down every time!!! Slightly unsafe for work commentary, but awesome video.
I've seen several people fall off their bikes when stopped cause they forget to unclip.
it really makes me laugh.
Mate i'm cycling to work on the road not going down flights of stairs! I think SPDs will be ok
yeah that is a cool clip! that lads got big kahunas!
personally though, there was a clip about 20 or so pages back and i forget who posted it, of downhill street racing in brazil! now thats the best downhill clip ever! just wish i had it to link up!
and your probably right! (keep your hair on)
Of course im right
Think of the time you'd save!
I'd need to buy a new bike every day as I'm on this:
Just had a bath and watched the F1 highlights.
Don't get me wrong, I'm no Schumacher fan. But I ****ing hate Hamilton, he's just such a moaning, talentless little girl. He couldn't pass Schuey' because he hasn't got the minerals, Button steps up to the plate and smashes him. Grrrrr.
thats the shizzle klappe! absolutely awesome
Haha, you can't have worked in the cycle trade for 6 years and not know the best video's haha!
my avatar has gone!
just as i was about to change it for something less annoying!
please can i have my ball back mr admin?
Since you asked niceley...
Chezney, what happened to your account?
It is like a mid ban or something?
Lets discuss this over a pint, AGU engine with 300bhp and 22/24psi. Who thinks you need rods?
His account/profile was locked cause of his avatar?
the powers that be struck me with a jolt scott!
where in the rules does it say "thou shall not have fun/entertaining avatars"?
please can i have my "the one and only" bit back aswell please mr rob?
(when i grow up i want to be a mod)
I've got half an hour or so, so thought I'd pop in and see what's cooking, homies.
It's not even fishing, it's just a "do you guys think you need them". I'm intrigued, I know you don't but people ALWAYS bang on about them being absolutely essential.
ok! an explanation then maybe?
Don't look at me! I'm sat nervously in the waiting room of an MoT garage, and only have access to Tapatalk.
The big guns are in play now!

It doesn't - we could probably all have fun trying to make, and trying to find gaps in, an exhaustive list of rules; but it'd waste an awful lot of everyone's time, and we hope that not every situation needs to be set in stone.
To be fair, fun/entertaining are generous after the first few views - I'm not certain about the risk of triggering seizures in those with photosensitive epilepsy (although I don't suppose it could be ruled out), but it certainly got a bit distracting/annoying; so, rather than have a moan I thought I'd have a grin...
But when this:
...was replaced with another mad flickering crazy thing, I just flicked some switches
[EDIT: Not a ban though, just closed off some profile options/functions a little - forums all still accessible]
If you click settings (top of the screen) and Edit Profile (*I think* - if not, general settings or something) on the left, you can change put it back there.
ok, now I understand.
I thought the fun police turned in to Fun martial law for a minute then and I bout to throw some toys of the pram.
Ok not my toys of pram but still. they would go flying.
Rob, Thought any more about making the pub less public and getting back to how it was before the fishing trip?
I feel its lost some of its apeal.
