What is your prefered pedal for fixed gear riding?

Clips, road clipless, mountain clipless?

MY fixed is like a city bike, so I like recessed cleats. I also like loads of float.

I like Shimano 323's as my fixie is the bike I sometimes ride around town in street shoes, but can clip in for longer, faster rides.

Look pedals. So cheap they are almost disposable!

I'm getting quite good now at clipping in the second foot on the first rotation!

Reliable in the snow. Even more reliable in rainy and dry conditions. No difficulty clipping in quickly. My fixie is my commuter bike, so the recessed cleats are a plus. I consider switching to the Z-Control pedals every once in a while, but I can't justify the expense.

Any two sided pedal would do.

I have two sets of shoes, both with Shimano SPDs on them, so it limits my choices to either Shimano or Ritchey pedals (I use both, and Shimanos are much nicer).
Looks - they're what I had already. nmdzrider

I just started riding fixed and currently use offroad spd's for the double sided entry. Eventually plan on switching to Campy pro-fit to match the geared bike, so I only need one pair of road shoes.
