Yes, yesterday I was wondering, Does Kissy no longer train?
Glad to see some activity!
I was reading your chastising mind. Sounds like you had a good birthday.
You might want to consider switching to Speedplay pedals. They're a little disconcerting the first time you use them, because it feels like you're standing on an ice cube and your foot wobbles around. But the advantage is that they have total rotational float, your foot can be at whatever angle it needs to be for your knee to be confortable. And releasing is easier than any other clipless pedals I've tried, there's zero force required. You do need to rotate your heel outward a bit, but against no resistance. Worth a shot, particualrly if you can find someplace to demo them. (I use the mountain bike version (Frogs) because I prefer having shoes that I can walk around in normally, but I've also tried the road version.)
