The advantage of clip less pedals is when you pull as well as push on the pedals. If you haven't reached that point yet you don't need them.

Well, in general, that's the reason I use the clipless. When the bike's going, I'm a regular Honey Badger and the husband can't keep up with me ....hills or flats, I drop him. I guess I should've realized when he kept asking if I could slow down a bit on the hills and the answer was ....no. I had no choice but to go fast.

I don't know why I first started using clipless. I guess I thought that's what you did. As strange as it seems, I never had an inkling that there was a problem. Even my husband didn't realise until our trip to Colorado last year. Neither did I come to that .... here's an admission of my first encounter with The Topple Over ..
