    Nightshade, the pedals are called "Clipless" because the cages that go around your feet with straps are called "Toe Clips". Clipless pedals might seem dangerous to people who haven't learned to use them. Usually you fall down once or twice when you're learning, just like learning to ride a bike. It takes a fraction of a second to clip out of them.
    And if you are actually falling...that fraction of a second will seem forever

    I firmly believe that clip in's and toe clips belong on the racing bicycles not the street bicycles.
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    Well I firmly believe...to each his own.

    In the context of this threat, the OP already is familiar with clipless pedals, not deciding if he should use them.
