Date Reviewed: June 16, 2011

Strengths:    traditional spd design, easy entry, adjustable release tension

Weaknesses:    drive side pedal external spindle seal squeals unless constantly lubed. spindle not machined properly to fit inner bearing race causing unacceptable level of resistance to rotate pedal body

Bottom Line:   
got these for free so i guess i can't complain but the right one is complete junk. if i had paid for them i would be looking to replace the one on warranty but since i didn't i will putting the spindle to the grinder so it will turn with less than 20 n/m of force.

Strengths:    I had these pedals for 10 years, using them on both my Schwinn Homegrown and my Diamondback Mission. They never gave up. Easy to use; easy to set up; easy to adjust; easy to rely on.

Weaknesses:    Nothing. Just today, after ten years of cross country and all-mountain riding, the right pedal broke off (yes, the spindle broke clean off, leaving the pedal connected to my cleat). That's not a weakness.

Bottom Line:   
Great pedals. Lasted ten years.

Strengths:    looks, and ease of adjustments to retention spring

Weaknesses:    a little bit on the heavy side(but actualy still lighter than a streetshoe/pedal combination)

Bottom Line:   
I got these pedals over shimano because the price and I didn't want to buy an expensive set to be my first clipless pedals. So far i have put about 20 miles on them and all I can say is WOW what an improvement compared to the stock steel cage pedals that came on my bike. I have also found that climbing is alot easier too. I would definitely recomend this product to anybody looking for a good first set of clipless pedals even though I haven't used these very long. If you are weight concious then these pedals probably are not for you as they are a little heavier than something that costs more but for me they are just what I was looking for because I am 220lbs and these pedals seem to "built tough" as the discription says they are.
