Yeah, I didn't think it looked like it was touching in the picture, but it was a little too close for comfort for me... I was just wondering if he's ever gotten his heel in there before.

I use a position like that sometimes on my 990. Moving my butt over is sufficient weight shift for how hard/fast I am usually wanting to corner on public roads, and it leaves my head & chest behind the still air bubble of the pseudo windshield. I don't ride to drag hard parts on that bike with its dualsport tires. And I don't even have a tankbag.

Front tire is on the ground. What you're seeing is sunlight on the pavement and shadows from the bike. Kinda looks like the front tire is off the ground, but it isn't.

For the record, I am a pant-cuff-outside-the-boot type of rider.

Carry on.

I hope you paid enough attention to realize that he's posing for a static photo, and he's not going anywhere...

Speedplay Frogs. Primarily off-road pedals but some like them for pavement since the cleat recesses into the sole and allows easier walking..........


WTF am I doing????? Now I'm turning this into a road vs. off-road pedal thread.


MUST...........RESIST...........arrrrrrgh
