Flats are fun! There's no worries about unclipping in midair, my feet never slip off, it keeps your technique sweet and it's great fun when the trails are muddy/loose and drifty. Foot out, flat out! However, I'm thinking about getting some clips to try.

Clipless is definitely worth it for XC, and most likely DH once I've got my technique down pat.

I want a dropper post, 2X10 with a chain device, wider bars and a slightly shorter stem on it. I think the dropper will be first because it will make the biggest difference to how I ride and also my results.

On the dropper post front I like the look of the Giant contact switch, has good reviews and is much cheaper than the other offerings. That or a reverb.

dude from a guy who's tried both on both XC and DH flats is where its at... i thought clips were better has better holding etc but it was all down to several things all at once poor tech, poor pedals and low-ish grip shoes

since got the nano's and even the skate shoes its a great combination that ive been able to work on tech and like you say bud when your really flying and foot out cant beat flats...

however if your on a proper XC jaunt and alot off regular climbing then id definatly consider clips has its hard to get better effeciency from flats

I'm tempted to try them because loads of other guys that I know that race enduros use clips and I just want to see if they offer a meaningful advantage.

I think the thing with DH and clipless is that they're something for racing, and not a lot else - you might want them for racing for the speedy acceleration and ensuring you don't loose footing over really rough terrain but beyond that there's no need for them. I'd definitely say rock them for enduro, but not sure which type - Pete, were they small pedals like Eggbeaters or with a bigger metal surrounding the clip like Mallets?

Something like the XT trail/Mallets.

I use SPD's for anything local as there is literally nothing technical, but flats for everything else, I'm just not confident enough to use the SPD's at Cannock for example.

I probably just need to man up and give it a go. Though when I replace my current MG1's with Nanos, I'm hoping I don't miss the SPD's as much.
