I use these on my road bike. I ride through town to get to the bike trails. These allow me to ride unclipped as I navigate through stop signs and lights and traffic. I have around 500 miles on these and they have held up fine. Easy to adjust.
Installed these on a bike to have a choice of clipping in or using regular shoes. This works great. Treads on the pedals surface do not allow shoes to slide, something I thought would be an issue, and the pedal is slightly longer and narrower than stock making it more comfortable to stand on. Overall, good design and quality. Pedals will probably outlast the bike and I have no regrets.
I bought these pedals for a bike I use around town and on trails. Great for casual riding with street shoes, and more technical clipless trail riding. They are easy to flip, and fairly lightweight. Im not sure about durability as Ive only logged a few hundred miles on this bike. Im pleased with my choice so far.
I use these on my cyclocross bike so I can clip in for some serious riding or just hop on it in street shoes for a quick trip in the neighborhood. I find the SPD side to be reliable and easy to clip into and the platform side offers a solid surface to use for regular shoes. I also installed them on my trainer so I can jump on it when I have to stay indoors.
I ordered these pedals to ride on snow and ice using my studded tires. By not having to clip in, I have felt more secure using these pedal on difficult ice. When there isnt any ice or th ice is smooth I can clip in and ride with more efficiency. I am very satisfied with these pedals.
I built up a bike this year and ordered these pedals. on my first test ride the pedals begin to make a clicking noise on each crank stroke at the top of the arch. after 10 miles it was really loud. I got back and made adjustments to any thing that looked like it could be connected with the noise. Test ride 2 was even worse. After emailing btd and getting no response I went out and obtained a pair of pdm8000 pedals (from a different source) noise went away new pedals felt great. very disappointed in this model of pedal.
