I am relatively new on all aspects of biking, I started this obsession on the road clipping into my '06 Cannondale Synapse and Cannondale T800 (like I said, it's an obsession). But now I find myself also riding a mountain bike, a Specialized Enduro (bought it used completely pimped out...very happy) and naturally put clipless pedals on it. Wanting to use the bike for more than just cross-country rides, I found some pretty scary downhills this weekend and in my completely ignorant bliss just went at it without really knowing what I was doing. I HAD A BLAST! But now I wonder to myself...."Self, do you really think it was wise to blast down a mountain at 25MPH while clipped/stuck to a bike without any real hope of breaking free from said bike if disaster strikes?" So, I ask, what is the norm for Downhill and Freeride? Do you clip in or not?
