I think I'm going to get used to the toe clips (not foot clips as previously mentioned) - although it's going to take a few weeks. It's certainly increased the amount of power I'm pumping out as I can do small inclines in meaty gear ratios. Much better than swapping up and down a gear set, like I used to have to do to get over Staines bridge.
Haven't fallen off the bike yet, although I have come close. I keep taking one foot out and then some how end up leaning the wrong way onto the side that has the foot still clipped in. But I usually can ninja the other foot out in time to stop myself from falling over. It's always when I've arrived at my destination that I do it too - which I suppose is a good thing.
