almost didnt buy these because of tarts that don't have a clue, I have a Felt Z4 sub 16 lb and wanted a new set of peddles, saw on other reviews that they make noise when they get wet, well I bust be deaf because they are silent in any condition

great peddles don't hesitate, I waited over 6 months of use and 1500 miles before I posted this, much better than shimano's only got smother with time

Strengths:    Light weight, low profile, stiffness

Weaknesses:    None yet

Bottom Line:   
This is my second pair of Look Keos. First pair were carbon/ti and, while expensive, I felt I got my moneys worth. Super light, low profile, easy to clip in and out, and great power transfer. After 18k miles, the footbeds were getting quite worn and I felt play developing so I retired them and bought Keo a pair carbon/cromoly. Not quite as light (of course) but satisfactory. With the addition of a metal footbed I will be curious to see how it wears. One question to other home mechanics: is there any reason I couldn't swap out the axles from my carbon/ti to the newer carbon/cromoly pedals?

Strengths:    light, strong, responsive, comfortable.
Beautiful craftsmanship and a well finished off frame. Ticks all the boxes, even the ones that don't immediately come to mind.


Weaknesses:    Umm, scratching my head, Nope,can't think of any as all the boxes are ticked in the strenghts department

Bottom Line:   
Recently purchased a LYNSKEY R230
Used to Ride competitively years ago.
Recently decided to get back into cycling and was looking to purchase a quality bike that was to be along term aquisition.
After ruling out a carbon frame and researching titanium, the name lynskey kept popping up.
It feels way more responsive and zippy than the branded lightweight bike I had previously. Also very comfortable. I initially spoke with the folks at Lynskey Performance (Don Erwin)who provided a 10/10 service in every aspect of choosing the right frame and components.

Date Reviewed: April 22, 2011

Strengths:    Weight & price when on sale.

Weaknesses:    Wear of pedal and cleats. (deal breaker for me)

Bottom Line:   
I tried these after using Keo Classics since the price was right. Smooth, light pedals. What disappointed me was how quickly the body wore. I used the pedals a little over a season and the body wore out where the cleat contacted it on the outside footbed. As soon as the pedal began to wear, it started to eat the cleats in that location as well. I have been riding Looks for the 5 years I have been cycling. I recently switched to Shimanos and would never consider going back. The Shimanos are easier to clip in and I expect the metal footbed will wear much better. Sorry Look. Nice concept, wrong material.

Date Reviewed: August 7, 2010

Strengths:    Light...but not worth it due to squeaking

Weaknesses:    Loud, constant squeaking. I have ridden look pedals forever and have never experienced this...

Bottom Line:   
It was BAD DECISION to buy these pedals. Theses pedals squeak constantly. They are so loud that I can not ride in groups as they annoy everybody. I thought the squeak would go away after 10 hrs of riding. Not so.

Keo carbon/composite pedal body durability

I have a KG461 'Jalabert Signature' frame, which has had a succession of matching PP396 Jalabert Signature pedals. I have postponed the inevitable move from a Delta cleat to a Keo cleat with a recent Ebay purchase of probably the last pair in the world of mint condition Jalabert-edition PP396 pedals ...
