Not starting a pinned vs. clipless war here. Iím certainly curious, just hard to conceive of the advantage, but Iíve 28 seasons on a mt. bike, pretty much all those on SPD, so a bit of old dog, new tricks.

Ride whatcha ride. Ö

I have 20 years on flats. I have tried spds on my road bike and even switched to flats. I maneuver my feet too much I guess.
