I come before you, get again, asking advice.
I have never used anything but plain old platform pedals. Since most of my riding is an urban/suburban commute, I am a little hesitant to attach my feet to the pedals for fear I may get hung up in an emergency situation. I would appreciate input on this issue. Is it easy enough, with practice, to disengage, that I should go ahead and try something? I have shoes that came with the hardware to use clipless (SPD?) pedals. Obviously, going this route would require new pedals.
Cambronne, you mentioned in a previous post that you still use clips to allow the flexibility of using different shoes. With clips/straps on regular pedals, does one have the option of just using the other side of the pedals in situations where attachment does not seem like a good idea?
I am completely ignorant in this area so would appreciate any and all ideas/comments.
