I beloved riding my bike as a kid. As a result of the cylinder 28 is mounted such that it may rotate in the housings 29, because the bow 10 rotates, the tip of the plate 18 might stay involved throughout the whole expanse of the face 28 b by virtue of the rotating of the cylinder 28 within the housings 29.

The lowering of the pawl 31 by rotation in the clockwise route about its cross member 32 releases the bow 10 which, under the motion of the flex plate 18, is returned within the counterclockwise route in regards to the pins 14. The transverse department of the bow 10 covers and fastens onto the rear snout 17 of the cleat 6. The cleat 6 and the shoe to the underside of which this cleat is fastened are then connected to the pedal.

The plate 18 could also be fabricated from composite materials, particularly a material consisting of glass fibers or carbon fibers certain by a resin and directed essentially orthogonal to the spindle three. In such a case, the plate 18 is ideally of rectangular form to restrict the risks of delamination of the plate in the region of contact between its marginal edges and the bow 10. However, when the fibers have crossed orientations, the isostress trapezium form could also be envisioned.

, characterised in that it contains a pawl (31) able to preserving the retaining member (9) in an open position, when the cleat (6) is disengaged, in opposition to the action of a leaf spring (36), and of releasing this retaining member (9) when the cleat is engaged, the pawl (31) being produced within the type of a body of which one transverse edge (32) is engaged in a housing (33) of the pedal body and constitutes the pivot pin for the pawl, the other end (34) of the pawl resting against the retaining member (9).

The pedal advantageously comprises a pawl able to keeping the retaining member in an open position, when the cleat is disengaged, in opposition to the action of a leaf spring, and of releasing this retaining member when the cleat is engaged; the pawl is produced in the type of a frame of which one transverse edge is engaged in a housing of the pedal body and constitutes the pivot pin for the pawl, the opposite finish of the pawl resting in opposition to the retaining member.

To make the pedal simpler to meeting, a prepared-to-assemble subassembly is advantageously fashioned by fitting the leaf spring 36 and the flex plate 18 into the opening 35 a of the cap beforehand, while the bracket 23 is also fitted into the cap, beneath the plate 18. When the leaf spring 36 is made as a single piece with the pawl 31, the bar 35 finds itself clamped slightly between the cross member 32 and the leaf 36, serving to the subassembly, which then also includes the pawl 31, to stay together.
