Do all you DH guys 'n' gals use flat peddles only on your bikes?
I ask because Im putting together a DH bike and I use SPD's only
(at the moment) Im going to have to re-learn to use flat peddles.
Your thought please.
i started using spds in the early 90's and never thought about using flats again until last year. i got my first full suspension which i use as "enduro" i.e. all-mountain plus very steep technical descents. i chose to go with flats on that bike because its way easier to bail out i case of a crash/losing balance. i took some time getting used to but i'm cool with it now.
i'm not sure if its an advantage to ride flats on a DH rig. i guess it depends a lot on what trails you ride. WC riders are split 50/50 between clipless and flat afaik.
important: get some grippy pedals an 5-10s. their rubber is uber sticky and quality is good. i ride nc17 sudpin III with 5-10 maltese falcon.
