We used hockey rivets to join toe straps so they did not run through the pedals (had to be leotard) I remember a race outside of Toronto that went through a rocky creek and one lap I had to ride around a salmon that was trying to swim upstream, i remember it was not very warm out but the stream crossing went right into a tough single track climb, i'm starting to sound like a Monty Python sketch now, next i`ll be talking about having to walk 50 miles to get to a race so as not to wear out the tubulars that had more patches than tube!

Many years ago i glued on a very good friend of mine`s tubulars, however for some reason unknown to me at the time the glue had not soaked into the base tape. He trained on them for a couple of weeks but had never cornered in anger, you may see where this is going... he was racing the race before mine and I was on the drop away hard left with high curbs when i saw his tire roll, he almost managed to save it hopped the curb, but lost it on the landing, only a couple days off work for him and the skin grew back, funny I never saw him much after that, good times, good times.

Instead of barriers a pink Cadillac Fleetwood, the rider needs to dismount open door slide across bench seat get out other side. A second set of barriers would be TVs with a Robert Goulet singing video, now you have the choice of shooting the TV for time bonuses or just going right over them.

The toe clips are off on those pedals, they would have been cut and riveted around each side of the pedal so mud would not build up in the middle of the pedals on top of the toe strap. The clips themselves look as though they are doubled up which stops them from bending if you stomped on them by accident.

Better a buttered muffin for breakfast than burnt toast at bedtime. Slippery cheeks are better than a chapped ass!
