    Can I put spare cleats in pedal so I don't clip in

    I am new to cleats and clipless. I love it certain trails. But going on rocks or where I may not make it is tough since there is not enough time to unclip.

    I have shimano m 424 petals and spd shoes


    They are double sided. I was thinking can I buy another pair of cleats and put them on one side of each petal. so if I don't want to clip in I wont, and then if I do, I just spin petal around??

    Color code it so I can tell which side is which?


    Any other ideas?
    Only one way down.

    That sounds more dangerous than just going full clip-less. I would either practice more with clip-less to get better at un-clipping faster or get some good flat pedals with some 5.10 shoes.

    Go to your LBS and get the Shimano 56 cleat it is a multi release, super easy exit VS standard 51 cleat where you must twist your heel to release.
