Man Down! Part Deux

I bought my Schwinn Voyageur bicycle 12 years ago. By the way, when I was a kid, Schwinn’s were the Cadillac of bikes. Probably 10-ish years ago I bought locking pedals and shoes. It is very easy to clip and unclip the shoes. Sometime during the first year I could not remove a foot from the pedal fast enough and fell over. In January, I wrote how I fell over making a tight turn. Well, for the second time in eight months I fell again! Another tight turn. This time I could not remove my right foot in time. I braced myself and tried to use both arms to hit the concrete. The only thing that hurts is my ego. However I broke another compass/bell combination and need to buy another one. And I will keep on using the locking pedals.
