I hate my current pedals which are basic platform with the strap hooks. I want new pedals and I'm not sure which way to go.
I come from a BMX background so Clipless are new to me. I tried a pair on a buddies bike and loved the extra power I could use. I know this is the ideal way but I can see myself crashing on some of the tuff trails I ride. My buddy rides the same trails with no problems. He has been riding for 3 years and does both road and mountain biking. He owns 2 bikes as well 1 for each kind of riding.
He also uses clipless pedals on both bikes and swears by them.
I also looked at better Platform pedals which I'm more comfortable with. The ones I looked at look like the old Bear trap design but with changeable nipples. Not the really old cage bear traps but the newer design of then.
What do you guys use and why?
