054 - How Pocket Pedals turns race bikes into commuters

February 18, 2022

Pocket Pedals are a slip-on, hard composite flat pedal surface that turns any road or mountain bike with SPDs into something that's easy to ride around town with regular shoes.

While it looks simple, there's a lot more going on with it to be able to work with SPD-SL road and SPD MTB pedals simultaneously. And don't even get us started on Look's pedals, but those are coming, too.

In this episode, I interview founder Karl Bjornson about how he came up with the idea, the complexities of manufacturing something that's both flexible yet necessarily rigid, and how their distribution is coming along.
