comment Can someone give me a short description and comparison of the different road cycling pedal / shoe systems?
Hi @geoffc thanks. Do you know if Looks are any "worse" than walking in SPDs? From memory they are ok to walk in for a few hours.

@geoffc ask Daniel asked the question - are Look pedal shoes "easy" to walk in? Could you ride to work and then walk around the office/school in them for 6-7 hours? Leaving aside if they looked weird or not - I am more concerned with function at the moment. Thanks.

comment Biking with spinal disc herniation
I don't want to stop the discussion, but if I was in your situation I'd also make an appointment with a physio who has medical training in spinal injuries and also in cycling. While the opinions of cyclists can assist, I wouldn't want to give you advice that could be damaging - I am not a doctor! Saying that, good luck with your injury and I hope things get better for you.

comment Exercises to do while cycling?
The back pain doesn't come from cycling, it's more from just stiff back and I try to stretch while cycling. Saying that, I am trying to find out if my bars are the right distance/saddle is right height.

comment Bicycling apps for Android
I'd also add a vote for Sports Tracker. I use it for running, and cycling. Great application and gives you good statistics on times, overall distances, lap times.

comment Stopping interference between LED lights and wireless Cycling Computer
It'd also be intertesting to see if the OP tried using the suggested ferrite choke. If you can't find/don't want to spend the couple of bucks to buy one, they can normally be found on some electronics equipment (like your broadband router, or a house telephone) as they are sometimes susceptible to RF interference.

comment Stopping interference between LED lights and wireless Cycling Computer
What cycling comp was it? What kind of LED lights were these? Also what colour lights were they? I have 2 white LED lights normally in "flashing" mode and haven't seen any interference. That's not to say they don't interfere but I'd appreciate if you had some more information. You can see my lights and where they are placed in relation to the comp here: flickr.com/photos/runningwithbulls/6978622804

comment How do I correctly set the angle of my drop bars
I didn't know what a brifter was (of course I knew it to see but wasn't aware of the terminology)so in case anyone else was confused check here. Brifter = gear shifter + break lever.
