Strengths:    Really like the platform

Weaknesses:    Takes time to get use to clipping in and out. Got mud in the clips made hard to clip in and out. Have to keep clean to insure ease of clipping in and out

Bottom Line:   
I have had SPDs Look and the Crank Bros. quattro Sl I have over 8,000 miles on my pedals. Rode 4 Centuries this year. Ride 60 or more miles a week. Weight is around 170
I never have had a problem with breakage.

Strengths:    Ease of entry and exit; multi sided, one format for all types of riding, price, customer serivice from Crank Brothers

Weaknesses:    Reliability, bearings, weight. come on crank get it together, just copy Shimano, Look or Mavic!!

Bottom Line:   
I have Crank Brothers on all my bikes, including egg beaters, candy, smarty, and quattros. I posted a review in 07 stating how much i likethe products. I still like the concept but have trouble justifiying continuing to use these when I have had 3 springs on quattros and egg beaters break, a pair of candys self destruct, a spindle break on eggbeaters, and the side plates come off 2 quattros.

Strengths:    Cleat durability as CB's come with a plastic surround to protect cleat. Minimal maintenance needs

Weaknesses:    Plastic Housing= questionable durability for heavier riders like myself.

Bottom Line:   
I have owned these pedals for 5 years. The first 3 years didn't do a lot of riding, but the last two I have logged a decent number of miles for a beginning recreational rider. I have probably put around 2-3k on them since buying them.

Im a 225lb guy that loves to crank hard while riding. I eventually snapped off the left pedal from the spindel. The plastic housing cracked mid ride.

Changed over to Look Keo 2 Max. Havent put any mileage on them but would say the float in the Look is great than the cranks bros. The float in the CB's was very controlled vs the ease of movement I felt with the Keos.

Strengths:    Reasonable weight and solid platform. Pleasant range of colours to match bike frame.

Weaknesses:    Not as durable and user friendly as times. Longevity is an issue. Very disappointed with product.

Bottom Line:   
Used item on and off for 12 months. Not as easy to get into as my time atacs and not as well made. Right side pedal came apart after minimal wear (metal pressed end detached from composite frame).

Strengths:    I can swap my road shoes with my MTB shoes since I am using the same system (eggbeaters) on my MTB.

Weaknesses:    Expensive, heavy (in spite of the titanium apparently used), non adjustable, takes time to get used to, poor quality and service.

Bottom Line:   
I got these at Sports Basement when I bought my Fuji back in June 2008. It took me weeks to get used to the clpping system - at first it seems like a circus act. It doesn't help that they are not adjustable in any way.

About two months ago my right pedal broke off (bad bearing it seems). Sports Basement called Crank Brothers who insisted on seeing the pedal before sending spare parts or a replacement. After several weeks they got back to Sports Basement, saying it required 'service' and would charge $ 27. After Sports Basement leaned on them a little they relented and fixed it for free. I finally got the bike after several more weeks. No points for the Crank Brothers service department here (but kudos to Sports Basement).
