Jonsondasw, fair play to you...Can you carry that eggshell pad on your bike?
Yes, I could carry it on the bike (straps and bungees!) but I don't have to. I can use my trailer. The pad weights very little--less that the air mattress I used to use. And, most importantly, it will never deflate, which happened to me twice backpacking in the past two years. That's what led me to give up on inflatables. I'm pretty rough on equipment, and sometimes have to camp on rough spots. My most recent air mattress failure occurred due to sharp rocks.
Actually, Russ, my partner did not notice they were coming out so in reality I'm not a liar. This really happened on July 25, 2010 in South Bellingham, WA. It's rare I've seen someone on this forum call names like that. This is a friendly, helpful site, usually. Maybe consider it's possible you are mistaken before you submit such a post.They can come loose and fall out in the weeds.
Nonsense. Lies. Fantasy. Whatever. SPD cleats are attached to the shoe soles with two bolts. Allen bolts. They are about 1/2 inch long. If they got loose, the cleat would wiggle and squirm for miles and miles. Anyone would notice this. You would immediately stop and see your bolts are maybe coming loose. You would then get out your 3mm Allen wrench and tighten them. When you got home you would take the bolts out and reattach them using blue Loctite. They cannot fall out by themselves without you knowing they are going to fall out for hundreds of miles before they fall out.
It's pretty easy. Nevertheless, you will fall because you forgot to unclip ... twice. Once in the first day, and once a month later when you stop suddenly and unexpectedly. After that, you'll never fall again, and you won't even have to think about it.
