Wow, pedal bite is REAL! I can't be getting scraped like that every day. The pedal tore up my sock and scraped bloody the back of my right leg below the calf, when I fell backwards (twice). Called it a day after the second fall. It made for about a half hour session.

Fun start, except for that. I look forward to trying again tomorrow.

I suggest you file the metal pins on the Nimbus pedals around the edges so they are more domed. You don't need that much grip as a beginner. It's going to cause more situations like you described above.

Good idea, thanks. I definitely have to do something, and immediately. I was also thinking of maybe taping a piece of cardboard to the back of my leg. At any rate, clearly those fangs on my pedals aren't something to be ignored.

I think the pins have a hex at the base and can be unscrewed and saved for later. I'm pretty sure a friend of mine has done that.

Really? Wow I guess I didn't notice, but thanks for the heads up! I will definitely check and remove them immediately, if so!
