I’ve done it. And I realized exactly how crazy it was when I looked straight down at the side of my bike. I still don’t know how I recovered.
An incredible recovery, I’m astounded everytime I see it.
This was on the Time website a few years back, to show the effects of inadequate cleat retention (those would be Shimano SPD-SL pedals he’s riding)
Of course, if you are PRO, your pedal spring should always be cranked up to “11″
Or until you catch it on the tele that evening.
That’s the kind of thing where you don’t realize just how crazy it was until a few minutes after it actually happens.
