I had knee problems when using SPD's  , I find being able to move my feet about suits me. Never had a problem  since.

Boy, is that ever true!

Cycling involves a lot of repetitive motion and if things are just a little off, it becomes a lot of repetitive injury and strain.

I'm sure a big believer in getting what works for *you*. Everyone's different (thank goodness), so the solutions are different also.

Best,

Dan.

Well I took Scout out on her maiden run yesterday. I took her on a variety of surfaces, tarmac, grit track, forestry track, and chipping trail to see how she would handle them.

PS. More photos to come

The bit with all the puddles looked like fun Janet!

Continue to enjoy your new bike!

Janet,

The fun I referred to would be avoiding all those puddles!

At the moment here in Victoria Australia when I return from a ride I have to wash off all the dust that has settled on the bike.

Loving the Rohloff. So easy to change gears (as long as I turn the shifter the right way ::)). Haven't fallen off since I changed the pedals. Was out yesterday on the Trans Pennine Trail. Very wet underfoot. Scout performed admirably but I now know she is not good with mud. She slides! Down to the tires, I guess. BTW they appear to be Schwalbe (classic) Marathons not Marathon Sports. Not that I care. They are great on the road and that is what counts.
