Why is it so hard to clip out of peloton?
If you are having trouble clipping into your Bike, or if it is too difficult to unclip from the Bike, we recommend loosening the pedal tension using the 3 millimeter Allen key included with your Bike. To loosen the pedal tension, turn the screw toward the minus sign (counterclockwise) one-quarter of a turn at a time.
Do pedal straps work?
The main thing that straps/SPD will give you is the ability to take advantage of your hamstrings. With flat pedals you really can only push down, and a bit back. With straps/SPD you can do a smooth, all-around pedalstroke which includes pulling back along the bottom of the stroke, and then up with your hamstrings.

How do bicycle toe straps work?
