Strength:

New they are only a bit heavier than the Dura Ace & Ultegra, and give a wider cleat platform that a Mountain Bike pedal. I purchased a stainless and black set for different bicycles. Black set shows scratches.Performance was good for 7,000 miles on two bicycles.

Weakness:

After 7,000 miles both sets developed a squeal/squeak that I thought was a bottom bracket. I switched the pedals about on different bicycles, and squeak moved with the pedals after I took the bottom bracket apart for service. I purchased a tool to let me service the pedals, but can not quiet the Black Pedals. Silver is good after service for about 500 miles before the squeak returns.

I ride 4 different bicycles for difference purposes, and these pedals lasted for almost 4 years. Both sets began having problems near the same mileage, 7,000. For the $110 price of two sets of pedals they performed well, and I moved to a 105 5700 and it is also trouble free.

Shimano, builds a good solid pedal that lasts forever, or longer than most people ride their bicycles. I am certain these 105 5610 pedals could last a lot longer, if I would have serviced them earlier.

Strength:

- Good Connection between shoe and pedal
- Easy getting in and out
- Secure feeling, no clipping out without intending it
- price is, in my eyes alright

Weakness:

- gets scratches very quick

I'm using this pedal for almost two years, since I felt that the SPD System puts too much pressure on one spot.

It cost me about 50$ which seemed an attractive price. And well - it's Shimano 105, you get alot for what you payed for: Very good function, a clean and strong connection between shoe and pedal, a nice secure feeling on it, no creaking sounds like at the more expensive products from look or others and is seems to wore out quite slowly.
Getting in and out is adjustable and works quite well after a short time of practise.

On the other hand you get the other side of shimano products: Just one contact with anything slighty hard and you get quite an ugly scratch on your (in my case black) pedal.

Strength:

Price, quality, cleat engagement.

Weakness:

Bearing setup (maybe)...in my experience nothing beats the Dura Ace setup.

I've been using these on my daily ride for about 2 months now. I have the Ultegra version on my race bike and I have to say that the difference in performance between these is minimal. These are great! The main difference between these and the Ultegra pedals is the bearing setup. For those that complain about the weight penalty between these and Ultegras...c'mon! I weighed them and my Ultegras and the difference was only 5 grams. 5 grams difference is nothing! And these can be had for about half the price of the Ultegras if you search around.

Strength:

dead easy to clip in.
easy to install.
cheap

Weakness:

none so far

These are great. Clipping in is as smooth as silk with a loud 'click' letting you know that your ready to crack out the watts. Putting cleats on your shoes are a breeze as well with two choices of cleat (fixed or floating). And for the price these are a bargain.

Strength:

Construction and performance

Weakness:

weight, not heavy but not as light as the ultegra or DA

Awesome pedals. THe perform just like the more expensive Ultegra or DA but at a lower price. Everything is the same but the weight so if you don't mind a few more grams I would suggest these pedals.

Strength:

Great platform, great entry/exit, very nice sleek looks.

Weakness:

Weight maybe, though not being a competitve rider, I'll take more weight and substitute it for a wider platform.

Great lower end pedals without the feel of a lower end product. I'm fairly new to cycling but have done more than enough research and testing to know what a good, substantial product is. No unintentional exits, and being 6'6, 260 pounds these have held up well with my most "powerful" of sprints. The wide platform is great for someone with wide and/or large feet, plus the look is the exact same as the Dura Ace/Ultegra pedals, just half and three times less expensive.

Strength:

Good looks. Easy cleat set up. Entry/exit.

Weakness:

None

I have been using SPD style pedals on the road bike for a while and decided it was time to change. Bought them new off of ebay and I got a great deal. Cleats are easy to mount and adjusting the tension is simple. Cleat entry and exit is flawless with the perfect amount of float. During hard sprints I have not had any unintentional disengagements.
