I have Time All Road pedals, platform on one side, clipless on the other side. It works okay, except that the clipless side is usually in the “up” position, which is kind of a literal pain when I start out with soft-bottom shoes.
For those of us that ride fixie in heels, could you put toe straps on those Ergon pedals? I do like the grip tape on those pedals. Heels usually have such slippery surfaces…
Lowrah – going to try in the morning the toe strap question…
fixed in heels, i want photos!
I’m a “teammate” on the Commuter Team.
I’ve been using my Ergon pedals on my short-distance errands bike (under ten or twelve miles round-trip), often riding the bike wearing Vibram Five-Finger shoes (my favorite off-the-bike footwear). They are great for this. My wife has a pair of the Ergon pedals on her get-to-work bike, and often rides in heels or other office footwear without problems.
They are great pedals for their purpose, but I don’t know that straps would work. There is no provision for them. I suppose if one were really determined, enough supportive hardware could be installed to use toe straps, but I’ve not found them necessary (of course, I am not the one to answer the “fixie in heels” issue, since I don’t wear heels nor ride fixed gear).
These pedals will not allow for toe straps. The design and concept of this pedal system is so there is no need for straps or clips.
