I have a set of cheap lidl shoes and the clips and matching pedals, but as yet haven't felt brave enough to try them. Had them for over a year :B

One day I will but for the moment very happy with my superstar nano and trainers combination.

Because it all began with getting rid of the clips on toe straps, hence clipless.

Clips = straps and buckles I think. I guess the term originates from the days when nobody used flats.

Clipless for me. Have done for 20 years.

Currently running clipless but changing to flats tonight as I want to be able to use both.

Felt a bit too sketchy in Wales recently, not because I couldn't clip out in time, but because I couldn't clip in fast enough.

Its the clipping in that puts me off, ive only ever used fairly cheap pedals and shoes but i always found myself struggling to get clipped back in especially on techie sections. Thats the only reason it put me off, and i found jumping technique seemed to suffer which i noticed when i went back to flats
