    Will these work?

    I am new at XC, and I am considering upgrading my pedals to the DMR V12 flats. I not overly fond of straps or clips. So, how will these work for XC? Please help. Advice is needed!

    My advice - Try some clipless pedals and keep trying them until you feel comfortable on them. Practice clipping in and out in a grass park. You will learn to like them.

    learn to use clipless pedals.

    during the process, it is also very usefull to learn to track stand.

    you will not do well on flat pedals in XC.

    If you're concerned about clipping out with clipless pedals, start off with low tension release setting. But just be careful, you're shoes will come unclipped very easily at the lowest tension release settings.

    Multi-release cleats are your friend

    You'll always be starting at a disadvantage with "Flats" - try and persevere with "Clipless" - you will get used to them!
