Strengths:    Look nice. Have reflectors for commuting

Weaknesses:    Bearings very rough. Felt like sand was inside them. Must be from Red China.

Bottom Line:   
I just need a replacement for the wife's bike. She doesn't ride much, so I thought this would do. No way! The kid at the Performance store, wearing a shop apron that said, "Spin Doctor", said, "yeah, they're all like that".

I asked him how on earth they could sell something like that. He said everyone who spun the spindle rejected them. I bought the next level up Forte ATB Comp pedals, and they are smooth as silk. They are made in Taiwan, if that means anything.

I can't imagine how a reputable outfit like Performance would have such a low quality product on their shelves. They must not do any quality control inspecting.

These things are below poor.
