Yes, if the ONLY reason you run clipless is because a hardtail bounces around a bit compared to full squish.... it is not a good reason IMO.Seriously?
I have used clipless pedals for 20 years now and I do so for the following reasons:
- Power on the upstroke - this is impossible to do without being connected to the pedal.
- Keeps my feet attached to the pedals in all weather.
- Able to pickup and move my bike off the trail just using my foot.
- I just love the feeling of being connected to the bike.
