Look, No Cables!

Since not everyone lives in Sandals like myself, I thought I’d pick up a pair a Chuck Taylor All Stars for a SoulPedal(R) test drive. Look, no Cables! (Referring to the experiment at Converse a few years back with a Wah.) I went for Size 11 US as I’m about a 10.5 US and I wanted some room in case (truth is, they were on sale at Ross for $29). At first, I didn’t like being able to feel the edge of my pedal under the toes so I pulled off the neoprene cover and cut out a full size for replacement. Way better, and my brother also found it comfy. There’s a lot to resolve here still, but getting there.

During the fun, careful inspection of the pressure sensor showed no visible signs of wear, but I’m not tracking the ohms Ω/gram data over time… shear is a killer there. Good news is that the flex portion of the pressure sensor isn’t failing like before. I lowered the path more toward Center-line of the bend action. (Maybe TMI).
