The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly: 10 Editors' Clipless Pedal Setups
@onawalk: Which skills are clipless riders more skilled? If there were some surely we’d all know about it by now. The fact remains that the most skilled riders ride flats. Do you suppose this is logic or just a big coincidence? And why is it that a flat rider transitions fundamental skills to clipless just fine but not vice versa? Can you address that without word salad? I know you wanna focus on trying slopestyle with clipless but that really only proves that clipless is horrible for dj/slopestyle skill, in addition to being a hindrance to strong fundamental skill. Not sure how that supports your argument..

The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly: 10 Editors' Clipless Pedal Setups
@onawalk: Not being insulting but that’s ridiculous.. we initially were discussing why it is that a flat pedal rider can bunnyhop, jump, whatever you want (within reason) on clipless pedals but a clipless rider can’t do the same on flats.. until more (flat pedal specific) skill is learned. You don’t seem to want to acknowledge this for some reason even though it’s a well known fact. I hope you don’t charge much but have good insurance haha. I’m 47 and learned sui’s on a amp b3 with a 75mm stem in the mid-nineties and that was the only real skill clipless pedals actually helped with.

If you pay even closer attention you’ll notice they’re also hucking big cliffs and other stuff even more badass than killer biceps

The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly: 10 Editors' Clipless Pedal Setups
@onawalk: Almost as silly as thinking that an even mildly skilled dj’er would have a hard time unclipping from clipless pedals. You obviously have no idea how much skill is required for dj.. Anyone can learn to get in and out of clipless in about 5 min, and riding with them doesn’t require any special technique or skill, unlike flats. Oof

@onawalk: Some say luck is to clipless as skill is to flats

Darren Berrecloth Fractures Vertebrae in Crash
I think this one goes out to trail builders as well. Walking an already ridden trail isn’t something people do unless changes have been made, so if a feature has changed drastically it should be noted the trailhead.

@onawalk: People were cornering just as fast on flats, still are. If you can’t bunnyhop, you probably can’t jump correctly, or manual. These are the building blocks, time to get with some logic

The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly: 10 Editors' Clipless Pedal Setups
@onawalk: The translation of skill is easier from flats to clipless because flats teach proper bike control. All skills were invented on flats. Take someone that has always ridden clipless and have them bunnyhop with flats. Now do the reverse and notice the flat pedal rider can still bunnyhop just fine.

The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly: 10 Editors' Clipless Pedal Setups
@onawalk: So the fact that most people can’t keep their feet on flats after using only clipless, and many times can’t even bunnyhop or jump isn’t significant? Any decent flat pedal rider can do all of this using clipless. It’s not a coincidence.
