But they aren't really *clip*less (as in free of clipping) since you
*clip*in and *clip*out. See?


And as I recall, before there were clipless pedals to clip into, nobody
ever spoke of clipping into their toe clips!

So the only pedals you clip into are the ones without clips... whew!

well, it doesn't for me. which is another way of saying: if it has become
habit then no, but if it hasn't become habit then mental fatique may come
into play and you may just forget to clip out. it doesn't take all that
long for it to become habit, tho, and i really think the whole problem
is overstated.

at any rate, i can't imagine why your ability to clip in would be impaired
by fatique. it doesn't take that much effort. if you're doing that badly
you've got worse things to worry about (like turnin' the pedals).

As somebody who has far exceeded his limits more than a few times
last year, I can tell you definitively that the answer is no. It is
probably the _only_ thing that continues to work well when you're
excessively tired.

Good points. I'm thinking ahead to my first century that I can't imagine
completing at this point. I've only done 50 miles up to now.
