A feature I've never been able get along with,it's almost like a step back to toe clips and straps.
Doublesided SPD's work soooooo much better without fiddling about with my foot to get the correct side up for any given footwear
My 2d's worth.
Step back? I prefer those. In fact one strap has broken and I haven't bothered to replace it. I hardly seem to notice. However I don't like riding with flat pedals.
If you don't ride anything else but toeclips,with or without straps that's your prerogative,but my meaning was that having to flick a pedal to the correct side on a flat/SPD pedal such as in the OP or to get the foot into a toeclip is IMO a bind(sorry) after using double sided SPD's.
Personally I'd rather change to cycle specific shoes than use single sided pedals or toe clips.
