Make your own platform pedal adapters for your clipless pedals using a broken skateboard deck and spare cleats.
Looks pretty basic, right?
Most of this is pretty obvious, but Philip gives us the step-by-step instructions to help you make them look good. Via Bike Tinker.
The biggest issue with something like this as opposed to pedals which are made to be dual is that with these platforms, the pedals will be a quarter inch or so higher.
Also, without a mechanism to prevent it, you may accidentally unclip them by twisting. I have dual pedals and I know that even when I am on the platform side, I sometimes instinctively twist out.
Yeah, twisting that platform adapter out could be inconvenient. I can see that now that you mention it.
I need a pair of these for the 2-3 times a year I leave the cleats at home. Never going to mount half-n-half or flat pedals, and I have 4 pairs of cleated shoes & sandals to cover almost all the riding I do, but there are still a few times none of that works.
Yeah, I guess they could twist out & true they will make a small fit difference (which is also true of my non-cycling shoes anyway) so that’s all the more reason to do this from scraps & trash instead of a $20 thing I can buy.
