Strength:

Cheap price. These are my first set of clipless pedals so I really don't know how they stack up against others.

Weakness:

Weird design. They are set up so that the cleats are backwards from the direction of most, if not every other SPD style cleat. I switched the spindles so that I could set up my cleats in the correct direction. Getting in can be pretty tricky, but getting out is not quite as bad, although I could see how it could definately use improvement.

I would not recommend these pedals, as they are backwards from all other SPD's and they are cheaply made. If you are broke, however, and just starting out on clipless, and plan to upgrade soon, these would be good to get a general feel for the clipless scene.

Weakness:

Hard to clip in and out.

These came stock on my bike. I tried to get them to change the pedals for free when I was buying it because these pedals were the only "no name" part on the bike. After backing out the adjustment screw to the last 2-3 threads I finally could clip into them. They always seem to catch on the front of the cleat when unclipping. I almost never had this problem with the crank bros candy c's I had on my old bike. Do not buy these aftermarket and if they come stock on the bike, demand that they change them or give a discount on an upgrade.

Strength:

Nice paint, looks cool on bike.
Cleats match Shimano's M-51.

Weakness:

1. Reverse cleats - what to do if you own two SPD'd bikes, get another pair of shoes or move the pedals from one bike to another?

2. Had to switch pedal bodies on axles to make the unclipping possible.

3. Very, very hard to clip in even at minimum spring tension, no 'slide in', only vertical pressure. Try to make a jump start with that!

4. Rode 'em for a couple of days; Al parts of pedal body got all beaten up and deformed

5. ball bearings last a couple of miles.

Buy cheap and buy twice. I own a well-worn pair of Shimano's 505s and took these as a replacement. After few rides, I went back to 505s. Don't even know where the Wellgos are, and couldn't care less.

The only good thing that came from them are new compatible cleats.

If you want a cheap, entry SPD, look elsewhere.

Strength:

open design, farely lightweight, releases easily when you don't panic (most of the time)

Weakness:

somewhat hard to clip in, some instances where the pedal doesn;t want to let go of the cleat

these pedals are not the greatest. clipping in is a royal pain unless you have the adjuster backed almost all the way out, and it's still not very easy. i have to stand on them at times to get in. and the front portion of the pedal gets bent easily, because it's not a solid bridge like shimanos. it's two prongs that come up from the pedal. if one is out of alignment, it makes it that much harder to get in. once you are clipped in though, they work well, holding your foot solidly, and realing it when you want to, most of the time.
