    Hey all,

    I'm a college student who doesn't ride as much as I used to (just don't have as much time as I'd like) and so I've been trying to find a safer, easier way to ride my old clipless pedals with my street shoes.

    I came across a product that is looking to get on the market currently, which you can also look at here: http://www.fundable.com/bikedabs. I'm considering taking a pre-order on the product, but before I do, I'm wondering if anyone knows of a product like this already on the market? Have you had success/found them to be beneficial?

    Thanks!

    behind you, don't wait up.
    A pair of el cheapo plastic platform pedals couldn't cost more than a few beers. Get those on the bike for cruising and commuting and use the clipless pedals when you finally get some time to ride.

    I seem to remember once owning narrow platform attachments for spd pedals.
