There’s something about the beauty of the metal toeclip and leather strap that keeps me second guessing myself. I know it’s an inferior system, most certainly when compared to the modern day road pedal. I’d even prefer to ride an MTB pedal if the bike had brakes. Some would go as far to say that a Hold Fast strap style system is even better than the traditional toeclip and strap setup. So why do we keep putting them on?
