First tumble!

I changed one of the cleats on my shoes last night. Today a friend came around to collect me for a ride, at the second junction we got to after leaving my house I tried to clip out, as it's always busy. The new spring in my cleat was stiff (Speedplay Zero) and I couldn't clip out - fell sideways, and managed to protect the bike with the exception of a small scuff on the shifter, and a small scuff on the rear QR.

It was a busy crossroads and some of the looks from motorists were priceless. My friend had the good grace to wait until we'd started riding again before laughing his censored off!

I'm pleased I've got my first one out of the way! :D
