So yesterday, i got new tires and clipless pedals/shoes. Aside from putting one of the tires on backwards and having to turn it around, it went off without a hitch. My question is, the pedal directions recommended i put some grease in the threads before i screwed on the pedals. What is the purpose of this? I didnt have any grease, so I put a few layers of that white teflon tape around the thread before i screwed it in. Sufficient?
On a side note, had my first clipless pedal ride yesterday too. Wow! pretty different feeling being attached to your bike like that. Trying to get your feet in the first time is such a foreign feeling. It took probibly 5 minutes to just figure out how to get it clipped in. I had 2 Near miss "fall over like a tree" moments that i managed to get unclipped and get a foot down and 1 fall, where the bike slid out under me on a turn. I also had to grab a tree once to stop from falling over, but all and all i think i did pretty well.
