Crashing sucks, but I’m a little worried to fully endorse (at least at this point) that the clipless pedals wont EVER cause a worse crash. My postulate was based off a small sample size. So, if you’re eating it pretty hard every time you hit the singletrack, I don’t know… I might stay out of the clips. Especially if i only wanted them to stay on the pedals better, I would go flats with soft shoes like the downhill dudes. But if you really need that upstroke, as of right now I’m of the opinion that you’ll pop off the pedals pretty easily in a crash.
