    When riding with flat pedals one learn how to control the bike properly. ie. The pedals stays with your feet when doing drops or jumps.
    When the flat pedals are mastered one can progress to cleats.

    Me, I prefer flats. More fun...

    But how many times do you bust your nuts on the saddle before you get to that level? I just imagine hitting the ground after the jump and your pedals are not where you need them. OUCH!

    I'll have my fun with cleats, thanks.
