Now you just need a more permanent mount. Even better if it is removable.

How about ice climbing spikes for around boots, then just modify it into a shifter.

I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

Brodie that is pretty close to what I am going to do. I am going to use a strap on ice tread called gripons then remove the little studs and attach the plate to them, they go over the toe and heal of the boot. There is an instructable an engineering student did for a paper in school taking the screw on version and improving it to make it removable.  I'll post up pics when I do it. I am pretty stoked it is going to work!

I'll be using a set of these.  With an angle bracket or large washer or whatever I can find that is a good shape and fit at the hardware store. will also be plasti-dipping it for some grip.

That's why I was suggesting the bicycle toe clips.  They come with places to mount the plate and everything.

Actually something like this is very easily doable......coming off the end of the shifter??

Or the sparky shoes would always make for a great show!

What I was thinking is instead of attaching it to the shifter, a shifting plate gets attached to the toe clip. That angle bracket could be straightened out, or one could even be welded to it.  There is a strap not shown that goes through the loop at the top and wraps around your boot to hold it on.
