Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

More flexible, so they are less likely to sheer off like metal. And they are mad cheap so you won't get pissed when you snap these ones.

That being said, I would just get some more metal ones because they are stronger and hold on to your toes better. Technically the strap is what holds your foot but, to me, metal clips seem to feel better when you pull up.

Good point, I guess I ride back down to the LBS and snag those plastic ones they got then.
