Mechanical 02 (minor)


My clip-in shoes have failed. The rigid insole has completely split leaving the cleat flapping about and difficult to release from the pedal. As a result I fell off coming to a stop as I was stuck in the pedal.

Minor cut and bruising but luckily I was ok. ‘Gaffe’ tape was an intermediary fix but today I bought new touring ‘Giro’ shoes and said goodbye to my wonderful ‘Quoc Pham’ footwear, my Cambodian polish and Vietnamese shoe brush. 

A new era dawns if the free wheel can be fixed.
