Only been at the Mountain Biking for about 3 weeks. Been in a few situations, were being clipped in would have been painful, to say the least. Any suggestions for the transition to SPD pedals?
Other than a little bit of weight, there's no particular downside to SPD/Platform pedals.

I use them on my fat bike in winter--when I'm on icy patches I swap to the platform side.
Knows the weight of my bike to the nearest 10 pounds.
