I read that these pedals rest bottom up. Do you find it a problem to flip them into position with the tip of your shoes?.

If am not fast enough at the traffic light the bunch will leave me behind and motorists are not that gentle in Australia, I will hear the horns and see the middle fingers.

your input will be greatly appreciated.

It really isn't all that difficult. Plus it is possible to get going while not being clipped in. If you clip out both feet at a stop light, I would recommend only clipping out one. That way you are always connected with at least one foot.
Mine rest with the rear hanging down. To clip in, youbill

just nose the pedal forward. Theoretically. That's how it's supposed to work, anyway. Sometimes it's very easy, sometimes it's not. It's sort of a haste makes waste situation -- if you flail about, you'll send the pedal spinning and it'll take forever. If you take an extra second (and I really do mean no more than a second) to nose it over carefully, it works very well. Not so different from Looks, really.

The first couple hundred miles on my Chorus Pro-fit Plus pedals the hydralic resistance of the grease and new races caused the pedals to want to spin a little with the axles instead of hang down perfectly. Really it was more of a jerky motion as you slowly spun the cranks around. Once the bearings break in, they will always be in the same position and should be easiler to find without looking down.
