I often gave them to another tourist going the other direction.Good thinking!
True but if you're like me the place where you bought your shoes put your cleats on and they aren't likely to grease the screws. And you can undertighten them, in spite of what the guy in the video says, in which case they can come loose and make it hard to unclip. Poking around the web it seems that 5-6 nm is the right torque. I couldn't find an official Shimano recommendation.I remember this from Youtude keep your SPD bolts greased with waterproof greasePut grease on all threaded fasteners.
Count on falling over twice, once within the first hour, and then once again once you get use to them but forget. It won't be long before clipping out will be second-nature; you won't even think about it.+1 To minimize the chances of this find a gym or Y that has a stationary bikes you can use. (They often have pedals with SPD on one side and platform on the other or put your own SPDs on.) Then you can practice getting in and out without the risk of falling. I always tell people to make their first attempt at using SPDs on grass. I didn't and wished I had.
A friend of mine got rear ended on 66. Ended his tour tooWhereabouts Nick? I'm thinking of going back and finishing it but some places e.g. OK City and Amarillo have me looking for a way round them

Although 11th in Tulsa can be an issue, Manchester in St. Louis is much, much worse. In spots along 11th, I either rode on the sidewalk or took the lane, depending on the situation.That's what I should have done John. I agree with you that Manchester was bad. The ACA route through Joplin MO was crummy too especially as there is the Frisco Greenway bike path that takes you to within a couple of blocks of the match line and avoids all the traffic, no need for insets or anything. I found that with my iPhone after following Historic 66 signs got me off route, no such luck in Tulsa.
