I know I'm going to get jumped all over, but I frequently take a 30 mile ride in...OMG...clipped pedals. I'm as big a fan of sexy new technology as the next dude, but when I started researching clipless pedals and finding out that if they aren't perfectly fitted/assembled, then they cause stress and fatigue on your feet and knees. And then I said to myself, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
I also ride the same bike in the city, so I have to get out of my pedals often and sometime quickly, so I took the straps off the clips. They're perfect, now. They're pretty easy to get into, very easy to get out of, they hold my Converse All-stars ("Chucks") in the pedal so I don't slip out and scrap up my calf, and best of all: I can move my foot around, alleviating fatigue on my knees and feet. And if it's really hot, I just wear my Chacos.
