As an aside, those are Soma four-gate clips (available at the shop) with double-straps, they work pretty well and are pretty affordable too.

How many people out there are using these pedals do you think? I’ve seen criticism of their ubiquity online. But I guess the purpose of this post is really to question why they have “Sylvan” on them? Anyone know? I believe their inspiration had something else written on them: nice gallery images here.

Just curious I guess….
