FlyPedals are the simple, lightweight, and affordable adapter to convert your road or mountain bike for casual riding. Don't buy a second or third bike for the casual ride around the neighborhood. With one set of the best clipless pedal to platform pedal adapters on the market, you can ride around in comfort! FlyPedals work with every major clipless pedal on the market (road or mountain bike). Simply pick up a set of FlyPedals and the cleats for your bike; mount the cleats to the FlyPedal. The FlyPedal platforms easily clip-in and out of your pedals as needed. You can finally ride to your destination in comfort and style with your street shoes.

Cool... I get it, the idea is you screw in an extra pair of clipless pedal cleats and use the metal platform with regular shoes. It looks pretty nice and these guys are from Denver (maybe I can swing by and check it out sometime when I'm back in CO). The only downside I see is that the metal platform is heavy and always rotates down so you have to rotate them back with your feet constantly :(

Since posting this elsewhere it has been pointed out to me that there already is a low cost alternative on the market, the BBB BPD-90 Feetrest which sells for around $15.00. So to me this may well be a pretty expensive solution to a non-problem.

Well you know what they say... it's all been done before ;) thanks for the follow up, the Feetrest pedals look decent. I keep thinking it might be worth adding weights on the bottom to keep these things right side up... but then they'd be heavier, and that's no fun either.
