    Been using Time Z's = love em --- just the right amount of clippy.

    used Crank Bros Mallet's = liked them but they clip in too easy // sometimes I just didn't want to be clip'd.

    used Shimano's = eh, didn't like em --- mudd up too quick.


    haven't used any other brand (besides XC pedals).

    I do not use clip ins for DH but I do use them on my trail bike.
    I have cook bros, they unclip way to easy for my liking.

    I have both Time Z and Mallet C. Don't use them anymore. I only used the Time Z's for 1 ride and the Mallet C just got back from The SPA treatment from Crank brothers. PM me if any of you guys are interested in buying. BTW I use CB 50/50x for my AM and Azonic A frames for my DH rig.

    Whatever the shimano DX clips are.. 647 I think.

    solid engagement, very little float, tension adjustable!

    That being said, I have Time Zs on my road bike, and love them, but wouldn't use them for DH as they are not tension adjustable.

    I use eggbeaters...? Alot of people don't like them but they work great for me, and cheap too.

    I rode a bike today with platforms and I was all over the place, clip-ins are such a difference maker. I don't know how I ever physically pedaled a bike without them.

    I ride CB Mallets with 661 Session shoes.
    It turns the lose feeling mallets into putting your foot into concrete and letting it set.
    But clipping in and out is still a brezeeee.

    only downside is with skate SPD's mud = enemy!

    Just be wary that clips are kinda weird to start with, so just give it some time and paitence when learning.

    Crank Brothers Mallets for FR/DH.

    Crank Brothers Candies on my trail bike.

    Love them both. Never tried Time, SpeedPlay, or Shimano... I'm too much in love with the feel of the Crank Brothers pedals.
    Meh.
