    SPD:Multi or Single release?

    For those of you who run SPD's, are you using multi- or single-release cleats? I'm alternating flats & clipless depending on the course. Would love to hear any inputs. Thank you so much!

    Single. I can pull my foot out of a pedal with multi.

    Thanks for the replies guys! It seems like the majority goes with single. Wouldn't mind hearing some more please. I ran multi rel today and it went well, except I had this insecure feeling that my feet were going to eject at a moments notice even though they didn't...

    multi release scares me. release when you lift up your heel? ack.
    i stick with single and im out in a millisecond if i need to be.

    ive never ridden flats though, so if you have good flat technique, then multi might be ok.

    It turns out that I run multi release. Never looked untill now. I have never had any problems with unexpected release.

    I only have problems with premature "release" when she is really hot err, I mean with Premature Release when I hit a rock or the ground and that just tells me I need to choose my lines better and watch where I pedal.....I run multi (the silver cleats) and Minaars with Shimano DX also!
