New Podcast: Flats vs. Clipless Pedals and The Truth About Foot Position

It’s been a crazy last few months with Pedaling Innovations. We were accepted into a business accelerator group earlier this year and the process of getting ready for it and getting started has taken a lot of my time.

Which is why I wasn’t in touch sooner about being interviewed on the MTB Tribe podcast talking about flats vs. clipless pedals and the specific advantages of the Catalyst Pedals.

There is still a lot of misinformation about pedal stroke, foot position and how the foot functions on the bike and I was glad to get the chance to share my insights from almost a decade on the front lines of this debate.

I had a lot of fun talking with Gareth, you can listen directly from the website at www.mtb-tribe.com or listen through iTunes or Stitcher.

Thanks again for all the support and I hope you get some good information from this podcast interview. Let me know if you have any questions about it or anything else to do with how to get the most out of your pedal stroke and legs on the trail.

Until next time…

Ride Strong,

James Wilson

    James I really enjoyed this podcast especially the section on shoes and was wondering what shoes you are using and what qualities you would look for in a shoe to work with the catalyst pedal.

      I use the 5.10 Freeriders with the thinner, more pliable sole. However, the good thing about the Catalyst Pedals is that you can wear a foot healthy shoe with a pliable sole since the foot is being supported by the pedal body itself. I’ve heard from people who have used a wide variety of shoes with success so you don’t have to be limited by “cycling” shoes anymore.
