My hubby and I both have BiGHA recumbent bikes ( ) and we have clipless on them (pedal w/clip attachement so we can ride with either cleated shoes or tennis shoes). He tried riding his without clipless for a few days and did not like it at all. He had clipless pedals installed right away and never looked back. We live in a very hilly area and the clipless pedals give us more power to climb the hills - which is not always easy to do on a bent.

When we take the bikes to the beach, my kids ride them with out the cleated shoes and have no problems cruising with regular tennis shoes.

Hope this helps!

Anyone else a 'bent rider? I'm trying to decide whether or not to try clipless pedals and shoes on my compact SWB and I keep seeing mixed advice. Some say they're great, and some say not. If any of y'all have personal experience with clipless pedals on recumbents, I'd be interested in what you think!

Do not try and think outside the box. Instead, only try to realize the truth. There is no box.
Good judgement comes from experience. Experience usually comes from bad judgement.
Live each day as if it's your last, because one day you'll be right.
Stop whining and DO something!
I have no shift key and I must scream.
