Over the years I’ve gone back and forth between clipless pedals and flat pedals. While some proclaim that clipless are the BEST in terms of efficiency, I would argue it depends on what your definition of efficiency is. If its to purely go fast and extract marginal gains in your pedal stroke, then sure. But if you’re definition of efficiency is not having to carry two pairs of shoes on tour just to walk around, or to be able to potentially do a long hike-a-bike, then the case of efficiency for a clipless pedal goes out the window.

In this video, I give reasons why we tour on flat pedals as well as review the new iSSi Thump pedals which are a pretty good composite flat we like.
