bear clawed

This is called getting bear clawed. It's also called wearing flip flops with BMX pedals on a road bike that slips a chain ring.

Yes, those are jorts and my floor needs refinishing.

Those are Poverty brand pedals with very sharp claws. Very good in the winter. Not so good with flip flops and slipped chains. When you have a slipping chain ring it usually happens right before you head into traffic, which makes it both painful and embarassing.
