Can you make any recommendations on how to use the Catalyst Pedal in a spin class? I’d like to start the class, but I want to figure this out first.

Hi, Andrea,

Thank you for your question. If the spin bike has detachable pedals, then you should be able to swap out the existing pedals for Catalyst Pedals (perhaps with the assistance of a pedal wrench). For spin bikes that do not possess detachable pedals, you might consider bringing your regular bike and an indoor bike trainer with you to the session, if your spin studio will accommodate it.

I hope this info helps!

Kind regards,

Hello! I’ve ridden a recumbent bike with clipless pedals for many years and I like them. Since I retired last year, I’ve had more time to increase my riding intensity, frequency, and distance. With longer rides I’ve started experiencing foot discomfort: Toenail pain related to tight cycling shoes as well as ball of the foot hotspots from mashing down on clipless pedals. I’m making an appointment to see a sports podiatrist.

I was impressed with the “Catalyst Pedals” design and would like to ask if you’ve ever tested these pedals on recumbent bicycles? Of course, on recumbents your feet are out in front of you, which is one reason I went to clip-in pedals. Based on the differences in rider position and pedal dynamics compared to upright bicycles, I would like to know if you recommend Catalyst pedals as a solution for recumbent bicycle riders as well? Thanks in advance for any info.

Hi, Leslie,

Thank you for your comment and questions. We haven’t tested Catalyst Pedals on recumbent bikes yet, but I imagine they would still work quite well. If you do end up outfitting your recumbent with Catalyst Pedals, please do let us know about your experience!

Kind regards,
