Hi everyone, looking to purchase either clipless pedals or toe clips (straps). I'm guessing that the clipless pedals are the superior choice. However I don't really want to spend that much for extra gear considering straps can be bought for 10 bucks vs $150 plus for low grade pedals and shoes.
A few side notes, my terrain is relatively smooth designated bike routes, with minimal hills and downhills but there are a few.
My question is, is there really a drastic improvement from straps vs clipless pedals.
