Bought these on sale mainly for the bronze color to use on my gravel bike. Had tried eggbeaters and Shimano spd's,but kept having numbness in my feet. These Look pedals surprised me with the large contact area and ease of entry and exit they are my new favorite spd type pedal. I don't have to hunt to engage the pedal and the finish is very durable after several hundred miles of riding. Thanks Bike Tires Direct.
