Cyclists might be interested in a new colourful universal clipless bicycle pedal adapter that has been created by Dan Lucchesi and Bryan Gardner and launched via the Kickstarter crowdfunding website, to raise $12,000 over the next 30 days to go into production.
The unique pedal adapter has been named Fly Pedals COLORS and builds upon the previous Kickstarter campaigns which helped develop and produce the already available Fly Pedals.
The latest Fly Pedals offer a range of different colours to suit your tastes and style. Check out the video below to learn more about the Fly Pedal latest Kickstarter project the ream explains more about their inspiration below.
Clipless bicycle pedals requires a specific cleat attached to either a mountain shoe or road shoe to connect the riders foot to the pedal. Unfortunately, these cleats often make it difficult to walk around in road shoes or mountain shoes. So, what do you do when the ride is over? Or maybe a casual ride to a bar, restaurant or cafe is the next stop? Most riders don’t want to wear their clipless riding shoes for the casual ride.
This creates a new problem for the casual rider. It can be uncomfortable and unsafe to pedal around with street shoes on top of clipless pedals. Most have no platform so the rider’s foot pushes directly on the mechanism creating pressure spots and little to no traction. Or the rider has to carry their street shoes around in a backpack or walk around in their clipless riding shoes. Some folks even resort to swapping between platform pedals and their clipless pedals. Either way, the options aren’t great.
Fly Pedals are the simple, lightweight, and affordable adapter to convert your road or mountain bike for casual riding. Don’t buy a second or third bike for the casual ride around the neighborhood. With one set of the world’s only Universal Clipless Pedal Adapters on the market, you can ride around in comfort! Fly Pedals work with every major clipless pedal on the market (road or mountain bike). Simply pick up a set of Fly Pedals and the cleats for your bike; mount the cleats to the Fly Pedals, and easily clip-in and out of your pedals as needed. You can now ride to your destination in comfort and style with your street shoes.
Fly Pedals Available in six new colours that include Blue, Orange, Black, Pink, Red, and Green, jump over to the Kickstarter website for more details and to make a pledge from just $39 for early bird backers.
