If you aren't experienced with SPDs, you will fall on one of your first few rides. Be prepared!
Lol, thanks for the warning.
I've been using SPD's for a about 7 years now, so I know what you mean.
The first time I used them I thought I was fine...till I pulled a huge stoppie in front of my friends then proceeded to come back down and fall to the side as I couldn't get my cleat out.
I did used to have some one sided cleat/pedals like the one's your talking about, but they drove me nuts cause the extra weight of the platform on one side meant that it would always face down. You'd have to constantly flick it over every time you stepped off the pedal if you were not using cleats.
