Like many of you, I've gone back and forth on clipless pedals. I definitely love the extra power they give me on hills, not to mention the discipline of better foot placement. But I hate those moments where you're stopped at an intersection, and when the light turns green you fumble around trying to get that second shoe to clip in and basically limp across the road while the cars glare, honk, or worse...
these shimano pedals solve that problem. clips on one side, flat pedals on the other. they were a bit tight and hard to get into / out of when they arrived, but a quick adjustment and now they're as easy as my old set.
being able to just pedal on the flat side when I want is AMAZING. whether it's not having to clip in during the intersection, or taking a quick run on the bike in my street shoes.
I've seen a number of should-I-try-clipless threads on this forum so I thought I'd mention it. they were $55 shipped on amzn
