I use flat pedals (without "toe traps") on both my MTB (Xpedo Spry) and my C&V (Lyotard 460D). On my road bike, I use the clip-in system (Speedplay Frog Ti), but actually, I had an ad up here, at Bikeforums, for over a year, asking for a straight swap of the Frogs for a set of Suntour Superbe Pro, so I could go either way.
Pay attention. Take names. Act.

I do the same. I tried clipless last summer and wasn't that impressed...but that may be because I am old and set in my ways...

+1 for flats, I also appreciate being able to move my feet around after a couple of hours in the saddle. And on days when the sun is shining and the ride is great I can do the happy dance on my flats. ;-)
