I do spin all the time and I love it, and I love clipping in.
But I know that it is not the same as on your road bike. I figured I would give it a whirl. I was able to clip in but it is not that easy even after knowing the feel from spin class. I also was holding onto my car while doing it so I have no idea how it works when you have nothing to hold on to. I got on and figure i would try to ride on the grass. I fell right away b/c I had no momentum getting up on the grass. It hurt but luckily i was clipping out and got out while on the ground. I tried again and mentally tried to think of how I need to clip out and that it is easiest when my foot is near the floor, the bottom of the pedal. I got clipped out on my left foot and started falling towards my right but realized I needed to put my left foot down and lean that way. I did it but it was sketchy and quite frankly I really don't feel safe on the open road. I am seriously thinking about asking hubby to put my regular pedals with cages back on and just use the shoes for spin. I feel deflated, and I don't want to give up on it, and realize i did not get a bunch of practice in, but it seems like that thing I can not do. I know I need to think about how many folks out there are using them and they do it, so I can too, but you know.
what to do ???
