I was wondering if anyone here downhills with clipless (clipped in, whatever!) pedals. I have been wanting to try it, because I have heard that they are very useful. I know that there is a tremendous improvement on the XC (which I will be doing a fair bit of) but I also want to know if it will work for the downhill sesh's. I have been in need of new pedals, and was wondering if my next purchase should be a set of clippies. I was checking out Crank Bro's pedals, and the Mallet seemed like a nice wide platform, and was designed for downhill. It also seemed to be at an alright price. So if anyone has any experience, advice, feedback, options, other models, write ups, or anything about these types of pedals, I would appreciate anything.
thanks for helping a fellow noob to clipless pedals out.
p.s. I am too cheap/poor to be a weight weenie so weight isn't a big factor, unless it is REALLY heavy ;)
