I agree the original poster is using the clips to jump not actually jumping his bike. The best way to learn how to jump is to practice and ideally find a trail like an A-line or live wire that gives you lots of repetition. Jumping is a full body motion not just pulling up on your pedals.Originally Posted by zebrahum
5-10 shoes and decent pedals also would make a world of difference. Shin guards do help since those screws in a good flat pedals hurt a lot.
For those who feel trapped in clips I think you just need more practice. Both pedals have there place, but if you are trapped in clips then you obviously don't ride with them enough. Go do a ride with clips and unclip a 100 times do this for a month a couple times a week and you will unclip without even thinking.
