Clips Or Flats??

Postby free_ryder on Wed 24/Aug/05 7:30pm

recently my feet have been sliping off the pedals, and i was thinking about geting some clips..i ride djs,DH and FR..
are they easy to get out of in a tight situation? do you think i should get some or just get some good flats like some azonic a-frames??

from my limited personal experience, i found that i entered a world of hurt using clip.
this was probable due to the fact im a munter rider :blush: , but still, i personally prefer flats :thumbsup:

i love flats - but last weekend after a silly slip my shin shouted, "clips."
but we all make mistakes and there are many times i think - i'm sooo pleased i'm not clipped in.

totally depends on your background and riding style.

I was using flats and now i have changed to clips again. I like the clips on my bike. I find the clips easier to pedal and move the bike around under me!!!

I would say if you find a cheap pair buy them and just try them out..

Are you on a HT or softtail (fully) bike ?

go for clips if you are racing dh and stuff but if you are doing a bit of dirt jumping aswell you proberly do stuff like no footers and all the works so flats would be the way to go
