Speaking of platform pedals, I think I'll stick with them, at least for now. I've really grown used to them, and really like not having to clip in and out. A lot of what I've been riding is really technical, so that's a huge plus when I have to quickly put a foot down. I've ordered a pair of shin guards to give some added protection in case my feet do slip, but I really like the trade off of not being locked in.
