Strengths:    light weight

Weaknesses:    ruined knees

Bottom Line:   
commute to work with these pedals. worked fine for perfomance for many years, but ruined my knees. many people have complained of the Look type pedals doing this. $2000 later in medical bills finally figured this out and went to time pedals. within 1 month knees had healed. get the time pedals and save your knees

Strengths:    They are standard SPD cleats. I have not sliped out of them or anything. Very easy to clip in and snap out. Lightweight 200 Grams. Inexpensive.

Weaknesses:    None so far

Bottom Line:   
Great Product. This is my first set of clipless pedals. I looked for something inexpencive and lightweight. Well I found them. I have nothing bad to say about these pedals are the newest version (2006) and have metal cleats. They are standard SPD cleats. I have not sliped out of them or anything. Very easy to clip in and snap out. I have a very strong back/up stroke and have had no problems. I have only put on about 200 miles. I am 5'10 and 178lbs.

Strengths:    Value

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
I'm always amazed at the differences in opinions on bicycle parts. My experience with these pedals is so great that I purchased a second set for my new bike. I've got roughly 3500 miles on my first pair with no problems. Easily adjusts and I changed out my cleats for 0 float as they are the same as Look. For the money these pedals cannot be beat. I'm not a racer so I can't attest to how they hold up under racing conditions. I'm a recreational/commuter but I ride quite a bit and would recommend these to anyone.

Strengths:    They're light and cheap. That's about it.

Weaknesses:    Where to begin? Firstly, I had a struggle getting used to the clip-in feel. I'd find myself a block or two down the road realizing I wasn't actually clipped in. The left pedal would clip out at random times, sometimes during hard climbs (dangerous!) and sometimes just cruising along. I spent months adjusting the cleat position on the shoe and tension on the pedal to make it a tiny bit better, but it still happens from time to time.

The pedals sit at an odd angle, making it hard to clip in from stop sign starts.

The tension springs rusted up after a ride or two in the wet.

After a year of light riding (probably 2000 miles or so) the left pedal is basically "stuck." It's nearly impossible to clip out of, no matter what I do - different cleats, clean and lube, back the tension screw all the way off, nothing seems to work. time to junk these and buy something easy and reliable from a better brand name.

Bottom Line:   
Well, what can I say? I think the old adage "You get what you pay for" is true here. I bought these pedals about a year ago for my commuter bike that sees occasional competitive use as well. I've had nothing but problems, and am actually online right now shopping for replacements.

They're a good "value" in that they're cheap, but I had plenty of issues. Reading these reviews, it seems others have had mixed luck too.

Strengths:    Very light. Golden Ti spindle is shiny. Cheap.

Weaknesses:    Inadvertant releases, not easy to get in.

Bottom Line:   
These are pretty bad pedals. They release on the upstroke in hard climbs, well one pedal does. Getting in is more trouble than it should be since the pedal hangs itself at a useless angle. Getting out is OK, but they do hang up sometimes now that they're screwed down tight in the attempt to prevent the aforementioned releases.

They are super light and cheap. I'm usually willing to put up with some weirdness as a tradeoff for lightness and/or cheapness, but these things aren't even reliably weird, so I give up. I'll pay a few extra grams and get something that works better.
