When Jim Morrison sang "keep your eyes on the road and your hands up on the wheel," he forgot to tell us what to do with our feet. Okay, so the Lizard King wasn't riding a bicycle, but I had to lead this post off with something and that's the first thing that popped into my head.
But I digress.
Baltimore, Maryland-based Hold Fast thinks you should keep your feet on the pedals.
The Hold Fast FRS (Foot Retention System) is a patent-pending advancement that provides an alternative to traditional toe clips and clipless pedals, and is a major improvement in terms of adjustability, comfort, durability, performance and style. Having been embraced by riders of all styles, Hold Fast is for all cyclists looking for a secure and comfortable ride. Made with pride in the USA.
You read that right, my bicycle-riding friends, right here in the United States of America.
We manufacture our products entirely in the USA, from parts sourced in the USA. Every one of our products is handcrafted by skilled craftsmen in the USA. It's just another way we are helping America move forward.
Hold Fast believes so strongly in this, as we all should, that they've posted the Top Ten Reasons to Buy American Made Products on their website.
