I've honestly never had any issues with getting unclipped if I was going down. It's all in the muscle memory and reaction time.
I've noticed guys falling off of their bikes on platforms in spots I was able to stay on with my clipless. Of course it's all personal preference, but most guys I've asked about why they go platform over clipless is they say they're afraid of not being able to unclip.
Like I said I prefer it because it attaches me to my bike and I can move it around under me much easier as well as my mtb shoes are much more rigid than regular shoes.

i cant ride clips. i have them on my road bike but my father in law uses them on his 29er and when i ride with him he doesnt get why i dont do it either, i guess its just how i was raised lol. they make sense, and i know i lose a lot of power through the crank cycle, but something about them just wiggs me out

Thanks, dawg

Yea, I almost picked one up but I'll just wait to properly splurge on a high end bike. For right now, i'm enjoying the hell out of my rockhopper

You know how much harder it would be to do a no footed can can with clip pedals????

I would assume it would be pretty hard, but then again I don't ride my mtb for tricks, nor do I believe clipless would be the right decision for dirt jumping and stuff like that. The only mtb I ride is cross country and technical tracks.

If you ever do take the plunge, google 'project 321 lefty adapter', lets you use a lefty on non-cannondale bikes. (The headtube is alot bigger on cdales so regular bikes need the adapter)

Yea freestyle and clipless aren't exactly words that should ever be said within 15 minutes and 37.6 miles of each other.

Think I might sell my bike, no one around to ride with anymore. Just gets so boring, plus drops and sets alone just isn't a good idea.

im probably gonna get rid of one of my bmx bikes and try and pick up a couple lenses for caitlin to shoot with.

itll also free up some room in the garage to build another mountain bike, maybe a 24" so itll be a little easier to whip around in the park

cool, if you want we can make a nice day out of it and ride laurels concrete park and then hit rockburn after. and then if it was the perfect day ever we would end with a charm city night session haha. each park is like three consecutive exits up 95 so its super convenient.

also, racing at chesapeake is free the first time. ill do it if you do it, we would probably be in the same class so that would be super silly. all the race kids come up to the skills park after their day and there are like 11-13yr old kids who just shred gnar out there
