Hello, all. As I mentioned yesterday, I had a fairly good weekend. Got two days outside on the MTB, enjoyed myself, yet again, but I am a little anxious to get back on the road as well. I am trying to hold out for Spin Bike Shop to start up their Wednesday night rides before getting on the road machine. Anyway, I was out this weekend and as I am riding I realized something. Right now I'm just rocking the factory Specialized platforms that were on the cranks when I bought the bike. I wanted to try out flats for a bit to decide if I just wanted to sink money into better flat pedals, or if I want to do ye olde clipless or something.
So bottom line is I think I'm trying to ask opinions. Do I want to rock out flat pedals on the MTB, or should I look into clipless and shoes? I realize from being clipped in on the road bike that it feels different to pedal, but can't decide how much of that is the road vs mountain, or how much of it is equipment. I know someone, at least John, probably has some good advice for me.
