Good call on the change of mindset.  For me clips make sense for road and to some extents gravel as you aren't riding technical terrain and don't need to be active with body / foot placement. I read a comment from Ryan Leech in an older NSMB article (written by either Cam or Pete) about him changing from clips to flats and re-learning how to ride and eventually getting better on flats as a result. I rode cliped in last night - first proper ride in a few months on a local trail I have been sessioning over a few rides.  It's not overly steep but clayey, chalky, rooty and off camber in parts.  I think the flats are going back on as it was quite slippery (I need to change tyres from Vigi to Verdict/Judge slippery) and flats would have given me a little more freedom to get off the pedals and dab.
