    Those look nice, I might have to snag a pair for my road bike. I don't clip in because it is my everyday commuter too so carrying an extra pair of shoes all the time would be a pain.

    My only complaints on the saints are the thickness, but I'm using 170 mm cranks instead of 175 now so that should help with pedal strikes. The line pros will probably go back on once the shop replace the spindle with one that isn't being recalled due to being failure prone They just look a lot nicer since most of the finish is worn off the saints.

    I'm the wierdo who uses flats on his xc bike and clips at the bike park.

    I run 165mm cranks on my DH bike, it definitely helps. That was my one gripe with the saints too. You'd probably love the canfields, they are suuuuuuuuuuper thin.

    I go too big at the bike park from time to to clip in, I've saved my ass more than once by bailing out on a jump and letting the bike take the ride off the lip without me.

    Get thre XT treking pedals. Flats on one side, clips on the other.

    I bought Shimano's entry level version of those and have been really happy with them. Generally I use the clips for any longer rides/commutes, and the flats for going to the store/riding into town for a beer (although I've been thinking about not being clipped in at all when riding in the city because of people randomly stopping without a reason, pedestrians randomly walking into the bikelane, cars randomly turning into the bikelane etc.)

    I threw a set of these on a buddy's commuter bike a while back, as kind of a good compromise between a flat and a clipless - it's got a larger platform than the normal SPD pedal so if you're riding in flats it's a lot more managable, but it's still dual sided so you don't have to worry about which side you're trying to clip into.

    I use these, have done bike park laps with them in sneakers one time I forgot my shoes. Used to commute with them in dress shoes or sneakers. Definitely a good choice if you want a performance pedal but don't want to be married to clips for getting around town.
