    Since this has already been bumped by somebody else, I'll reply to this:
    Maybe if you've got regular old road cycling clips, but if you've got something specifically designed for MTBing (e.g. SPD's), clip-less is much, much safer than toe clips. They hold tighter, when I want them to, and I'm in and out of my clip-less much faster than toe clips. Plus, I'm a lot more stable and can use more "body english" on a descent.

    Just got back from my ride. If my computer decides it wants to recognize my phone for once, I'll post some pics. The mountains are pretty exhausting, but sooo much fun!

    Wow, I went through the pages here and some of you are just amazing with your clips! Awesome stuff. I consider myself rather a fan that a actual rider. However I love to ride my bike off-road and urban kind of off-road (if you know what i mean). As new here I want to show you my ride, however I'm overwhelmed by your equipment :) However I love my bike and I live riding it!

    Cheers!

    Just dropped my bike off at the shop to get all the parts going with my new frame, can't wait!!

    We also have the big bike show next week, looking forward to getting some new parts.

    I also found a twonie race, everyone who enters pays $2 and the winner gets the pot, its 30 min away mid week once the snow goes..this will really help my running!!

    I've been trying to go biking every week since it's been so nice out here. I have better pics on my phone that I'll upload later. Here's one to revive this thread.

    Anybody been riding lately? I've been going 1-2 times a week. I had to start riding without gloves today because I've had the most ridiculous tan. Tan/burnt everywhere but white hands. Today's ride fixed that though. I'll miss my hilariously embarrassing white hands.

    Man, coming-up on four years later, nothing's changed much. :realmad: The Oldest is off training wheels and the youngest will likely be off them in the spring. :pray:

    I'll have to add pictures of my pretty much nothing original except the frame (and maybe rims/spokes/hubs) 199? StumpJumper Comp.
