Submitted by Jim Kennedy a Cross Country Rider from Whitewater, WI USA

Date Reviewed: September 14, 2000

Strengths:    Worked fine, as a basic starter set.

Weaknesses:    Wore out way too quickly. Often dismounting unexpectedly. Fell apart completely wihin a year.

Bottom Line:   
As a previous reviewer suggested, use them until they wear out (if they came with the bike - don't recommend buying them). Upgrade when they go byebye - and they will. Since your cleats will still be new, try Shimano 646. Same price, but superior quality.

Strengths:    
I really depend on them, and almost every situation, either it be technical or fast singletrack no problems.


Weaknesses:    
Must be kept clean and lubed, otherwise, mud and dirt left over time does complicate clip in.


Bottom Line:   
Overall I can't find a reason to get another pedal, seems the only way i'd change is if the stoped making them.

Date Reviewed: August 9, 1999

Strengths:    
Easy exit
clicks when in


Weaknesses:    
bearings are trashed
no good in the mud


Bottom Line:   
The bearings on these pedals should not be shot after 2 years. Additionally, these pedals are really difficult to use in muddy terrain. I find the Wellgos and the Topos easier to engage in the mud, plus they're much cheaper than the Scotts.

Date Reviewed: June 15, 1999

Strengths:    
They work


Weaknesses:    
They wear out


Bottom Line:   
They worked like any SPD, they just wore out quickly. After awhile, accidental releases were common and replacing the cleat didn't help much. If your bike came with them, ride them until they wear out and replace them with Time pedals (see reviews)!

Date Reviewed: May 28, 1999

Strengths:    
Very light


Weaknesses:    
sometimes releases at bad times


Bottom Line:   
Personally, these pedals are not worth the $100(CDN) that you would pay for new ones(mine came with the bike). I wrecked them in 2 weeks so that when the tension was at max, my feet would easily popout. It was very difficult to engage with the pedals this tight. Don't waste your money on these. Spend the extra $40 and get a pair of 545's.

Strengths:    
Came stock on my Moab 2, therefore free.


Weaknesses:    
come unclipped at bad times


Bottom Line:   
Good starter peddle, not good for anything past that. I have the tension cranked up all the way and still come out sometimes. The bearings aren't sealed very well, and need lubed often. One of the bolts that hold the plate on the peddle has sheared off. Spend the money for good peddles!

Submitted by Michael Mejia a Cross-Country Rider from Berkeley

Date Reviewed: March 22, 1999

Strengths:    
cheap at the time


Weaknesses:    
worse than most in muddy/gritty conditions; irregular release, and loading


Bottom Line:   
When I got these they were the least expenseive but got me into clipless. We ride all year in some pretty terrible stuff and these pedals don't make it any easier. Loading is irregular and is release and this is worse when conditions are bad; when you need good stuff the most. They have never broken, but I don't know if that is a good thing or not; if they had I would have replaced them with something decent.

Bottom Line:   


I have a pair of Scotts that came stock on my Schwinn Homegrown, they are physically similar to the 535s on my Bontrager RaceLite, however, I feel that they work slightly better than the 535s in most conditions. BTW, neither worked very well during El Nino.

Date Reviewed: November 16, 1998

Bottom Line:   


I've ridden these pedals for the last two years and they still look and work great. At 350 grams, they're lighter than 535's and even 747's. I have a pair of 535's on my other bike and really don't notice much difference. Mud makes entry difficult (same with 535's) but I've never had any trouble getting out when I had to. It helps to keep the springs lubed. At $27, these are a screaming deal at Supergo.

Date Reviewed: October 22, 1998

Bottom Line:   


Worked great when they were lubed and conditions were not muddy. The plate that you clip into just broke off earlier today. Both of the screws that hold it sheared in two. At least I got 1000's of miles on them before this happened and they were banged around a ton. They have hit and scrapped all kinds of rocks and stumps.
