I've been commuting with running shoes and platform pedals for the last 2 years, about 2000 mi / year. I would like to try clipless. However, I suspect with all the intersections and other reasons to stop on my commute, both expected and unexpected, clipless may not work out.
My question is - will the clipless shoes work on platforms if I remove the cleat? I like the idea of a less cushioned sole. Even if I return to platforms I would like to still use the bike shoe.
