Donít take my word for it though. Do a search on the million clipless threads.
That hasnít been my experience and Iíve been involved with clipless pedals from the very first model Look made available decades prior. I havenít seen an instance yet that hasnít boiled down to a coordination or bike handling problem.

But itís fair to disagree too.

I have a total right hip replacement, the rod in my femur is 3/4 the length of the bone, also have a partial big toe joint replacement and two screws in my right foot. Only fly a couple of times a year but sprung for the TSA Known Traveler pre screening program.

I also always set off the detector and have to go through the body scanner and pat down. Last October after the scan the TSA agent said he had to pat down my left hip and leg. I told him I had an implants on the right, he said “it shows left”. Not sure if he was dyslexic or the machine was off.

Made me feel extra secure.
