Strength:

Simple light weight clever design, adjustable release and angle

Weakness:

NA

These pedals have been used for 14 years and couple of rides per week. They are easy in and easy out, nice and stable under power. The elastomers has been changed about three times. The bearings have finally wore out. Mainly the bushing but a little spindle wear. I have another set that will go back on the bike.

Strength:

Bought used in 94! still on my first elastomers

Weakness:

none

I commute daily year round. These pedals have lasted 15 years and they were used when I bought them. What more could you ask for? And they function flawlessly. Easy in and easy out but never unexpectedly. Light enough and I haven't changed cleats ever!

Strength:

Easy to clip into. Clean profile and simple form. Mud clearance is above average. Enough float to make any freeride freak happy. Elastomer bushings laster longer than I thought they would.

Weakness:

Honestly, none come to mind.

Bottom line. I got these pedals as seconds from a cop on the Riverside Police force. They were used but free. That was 9 years ago. I have abused the living heck out of these pedals and not changed the elastomers in them since the day i got them. They are still strong, keep me clipped in and work like a charm. In terms of value, I got mine free, but if I paid $160 for these things back in the early 90s and have had to do no work or replacments on them, I would consider that killer value.

I just bought a new pair of shoesthis month and with them I got some free Time ATACS (how do i luck out with free pedals all the time?). I am going to throw on the ATACS and give them a "fair trial" before I put my Onza cleats on my new Specialized Pro 03 MTBs. If I like them, i'll write a review there. If not, I'm going going...back back...to Onza Onza.

Much love to the Socal Inland Empire bike scene. Miss my old trails but Washington is the SHEET.

I absolutely Love these pedals. I have them teamed with a pair of cheap Nashbar shoes and they work flawlessly. They spin more freely than my friend's twin cams. I change the elastomers to fit the weather but that's ok I like to work on my bike. Over all I would recommend these to anyone. Also the bearings are top notch.

The standard lubricant elastomers are murderous and life threatening since once you get your feet connected it'll take Schwarzenegger-like twisting power to release yourself from these biests, especially in winter time.
Bought my Onza Ti's to complete my dream bike. Helped me to get my AMP B3 below 23.5 lbs.
Once I got my new bike and tried it out (which was in cold Dec. '93) I took some
skiing lessons on my gums. I will have to take away 2 stars for not warning customers with the dangers involved using the standard elastomers in cold weather, since after all I am pretty happy with the pedals after I found the right pair of elastomers(the black ones), which were then good in any weather.

These are the biggest pile of shite in the world .The bearings went in less than a week and the body doesnt fit onto the spline at all utter crap. The cleats are appaling and are un usable onother bikes, and the elastomer tension system sucks
No stars

I would rather castrate myself with a spoon than leave these on my rig.
Yea, they are light, but at the rate I'm losing flesh it won't matter.
Main compaint: I can't get in when I want to and pop out when least expected, like in the middle of a bunny-hop (I hate it when that happens). I have jacked with the elastomers and tried every trick suggested, all to no avail.
Get the Shimano 747's (yea, I know the big S sucks, but they work).

The Onza pedals works great under most conditions, they are easy to get in/out (make sure your cleats are in good shape), enough float to keep my knees happy, and they are light! The only problem I came across is when the weather get on the chilly side, the elastomers gets a little too stiff for me, otherwise two thumbs up.

I've used these since 1993!!! with no problemas...waaay back when, I got a new pair of Shimano mtn bike shoes and the guys who built my bike, Hi Mike and Kai!, shaved the hell out of the shoe bottoms and threw away the clear elastomers for the black hard ones...and I've not had a blinking fall or any other issue. I was sorry to hear that ONZA had died because these are great products, and weigh less than 300Gs. I also have a pair of Shimano silver leather Kevlar shoes...you know, the ones that cost more than $300....with ONZA cleats for these pedals, and they also work great. All the fools who are complaining about these pedals probably need the big flat SPDs and also can't find the fly when it's time to pee, as the piss drips down legs they curse the Levi's....I am taking these off my Marzocchi and installing them on my new Titus FS that's being built, so I won't have to change my shoes, or my pedaling balance. That's how much I think of ONZA Ti pedals...they've survied the millennium and will survive another 10 years--they don't need any maintenance...I've ridden them for 7+ years and thousands of off-road miles in all types of weather and terrain and I have not thought one second about the pedals...I installed them, and I forgot I had them but for reading this review page, which reminded me ONZA made a freaking GREAT pedal.
