I gave up clips and straps for clipless pedals back in 1987. When I first tried riding fixed gear in 2005, I briefly tried going back to straps, but for me it turns out clipless pedals are much easier to use.
It seems like every fixie rider I see rides with straps, though. Is it a style thing? Are straps better / easier / quicker than bindings? If you ride fixed, how do you roll?
One things for certain: riding fixed with clipless pedals means you learn how to clip in quickly after a stop. I can generally get clipped in within half a pedal stroke as you can see in the video my daughter shot of me.
The bike shown in the photo and video is Kona’s Band Wagon, new for 2010. Watch for comments and reviews of this bike in the coming weeks.
