I'm tempted I'll admit it.
Cleats are the things in your shoes that clip into specially designed pedals. Your feet are secure even if it's weeing with rain and, apparently they can improve your pedal power as your foot is in the correct position.
But if you don't get out of them in time at a junction you fall over sideways in an undignified manner.
Mr Weenie is against them as he reckons I'll fall over continually and I'm worried about the fact you can't pedal in normal shoes so if your cleats are wet/unusable you're screwed. You can get cleat shoes that you can walk in as well as pedal so, ostensibly, it wouldn't be that much of a barrier but specialist shoes cost a huge amount more than normal ones.
Any advice gratefully received.
