Homepage Forums Anything But Riding… General B.S. CLIPS ARE FOR IDIOTS Reply To: CLIPS ARE FOR IDIOTS


I guss i’m the only opposition to this. I started using clips when i turned expert about 8 years ago. i immediatly noticed abig difference in my gate and first straight. they do help out. Also, i remember how many people used to slip pedals and smash a certain place pretty hard. You don’t see as much of that anymore. To the contrary though i do not think that a rider should be able to ride clips until they are at least a novice. They first need to learn the important bike skills before their feet are locked into a bike. Nothing pisses me off more than seeing a 5 year old kid clipped in on the gate that falls over because he doesn’t know how to balance. [/b]
