I use the same. Clipless helps keep your feet cranking as you ride over obstacles and not slipping off the pedals.PD-M530 if you want to go clipless and still want some platform for those first couple spins till you get clipped in. I kinda feel like clipless is the way to go unless you're bombing down some hills all the time and need to have your feet off the pedals. Clipless is just a more efficient way to pedal/spin. my 2 Cents.
