since i still have pedals and just need shoes/cleats, and it'd really help for going uphill, as i'll soon be doing more frequently. i have a brake, so i'll be running spd's (i've learned the hard way that spd sucks for brakeless). however, even with a brake, if i need to stop on a freakin' dime, or just want to stop a fun way, i'll still bust out a hockey stop.
i can't remember if i used hockey stops much when i rode clipless, so my own experience is useless here. but i remember a recent thread where a clipless rider said they couldn't hockey stop. sounds hokey to me.
i wondered what y'all think of this. if worse comes to worse, i can probably track down a bike and shoes with clipless to attempt it on. i figure it's got more to do with how you throw your body weight around than how you twist your feet, so unclipping shouldn't be an issue....right?
