Upgrading to cycling shoes and clip-in pedals is the single biggest performance enhancement you can do to your bike. Cycling shoes provide a stiff platform for efficient energy transfer. You'll easily gain 5-10% in power with the right shoes and pedals.
Being clipped in is much safer and provides a more secure connection to the bike for better handling and control.
Let the friendly staff at iCycle get you set up with shoes and pedals! We can help you choose, mount the cleats, install the pedals, and give you a lesson on clipping in and out with your bike secured to a trainer stand.
