I bought this as an entry level clipless pedal, and felt the value was good. After riding it around the block a few times, I really liked it. However, when I rode it to work, my toes would go numb. I tried adjusting cleat position and seat height to no avail. This could because of my casual cycling shoes (Shimano CT5) I was using did not have a stiff enough bottom, rather than the pedal's fault, but needless to say, I stopped using both of them.
My only complaint about this product is that it's impossible to return because the clips and pedals will never be like new after first use. I would have returned them, but it's honestly just the nature of the product. You can't return it.
I just don't know, why I didn't order this sooner. It looks good and does his purpose. I ride more than 3,000 miles a year, so I need something in good quality and since all my other accessories are from Shimano, this completes my bike.
These pedals are working great! I did have to adjust the tension several times to get into and out of them safely. I am not sure why someone would spend 10 times the amount for a pedal that weighs a few grams less. They spin fine, don't make noise, hold securely. I am happy with the purchase. Maybe those expensive pedals are awesome, but these are well worth the money I paid. No complaints.
Shimano Pedal Dynamics (SPD) are the pedals I used when I went clipless 15 years ago. I wore out 3 set of SPD's, never found a rebuild kit. 10 years ago I switched to Crank Bros Eggbeaters and Candy, for which I have rebuild kits ($10) and rebuilt 1 set. Cleats wear out before the pedal bearings. I remember a few episodes of SPD's jamming on engagement/disengagement. Scary when the pedal won't let go of your foot. Crank Bros are rebuild-able and smoother engage/disengage.
I am a road biker and after moving to Montana winter can be a bitch for a road biker. I have a hybrid that had clip pedals installed. I never liked the feel so I bought a new pair of mtn bike shoes and SPD pedals to take advantage of the inset design of these shoes... OMG I still can't get over the comfort of these pedals. I can get off the bike and walk like a human not like a newly shoed horse like with Look and Speedplay pedals. Don't get me wrong those pedals have their purpose but for commuting or biking back roads of anywhere these are the way to go. I wasn't worried about saving every gram of weight and so far these pedals have performed right out of the box. The pedals are adjustable and I may fine tune the release if I get around to it but then again, maybe not. Great product as would be expected and the cost to value is tops. I have ridden the MS 150 a few times and will be wearing these for sure.
Tried many others, nothing compares to the durability and quality of Shimano pedals. These are just awesome bang for the buck.
Nothing much to say about these pedals. Not the lightest out there, but they work just fine. If you just need a pedal and aren't counting every last gram this is a good way to go.
