I have resisted for a long time. Then my wife did it last year. Went clipless. I have these big plastic toe clips, without straps, on both my bikes and liked them just fine. I don't know why I did it, but I finaly gave in to peer pressure and bought some Shimano A520 SPD pedals and some Shimano MTB shoes. I figured with recessed cleats and shoes I can actualy walk around in (store and such) I might just learn to like it. I planned on spending quite a while getting used to them. Not so. Clipped in and out about three times to make sure it all worked, then took off for a ride. I stopped several times and practiced clipping out and putting a foot down, then taking off and clipping in again. By the time I made it a half mile or so, and two or three stops, I was in love. Pedaling is so much easier now. Don't tell my wife, but she was right. If any of you tell her I said that here, I will claim that you forged this post.
