    Do you have two bikes or swap pedals over depending on route knowledge of planned ride?
    A magical mystery tour bike! I like it :D

    Well I have 2 bikes and I take the one with mudguards if it's raining or forecast to do so, and the other if it's dry. So I suppose the 2 bike theory is possible.

    I occasionally have to put flat pedals on my winter bike for my eldest son's GF to ride when she's visiting, and find that a bit of a faff. Can't imagine doing pedal swaps before every ride and then having to go back inside for the other pair of shoes...

    Perhaps they need to start making pedals with SPD on the back of the SPD-SL, which are only one sided to start with...!
