clipless is nice, but it's not for everyone. i'm sort of on the fence about which i like more. clipless for racing, fasho, but on the street, meh.
personally, i like plastic clips. cheap, durable, don't make that horrible scraping noise if you ride the undersides of the pedals...you can get colors if you want...i've heard far fewer stories of breakage than with metal clips. they're a little more flexy, but is that really all that important? that's also part of why they seem to break less. that which bends does not break. i think that's some zen thing.
in short, fixed gear is about zen, right? go plastic!
