    A good road pedal and you can get pedals and cleats for the price of new cleats alone.

      I have been using clipless pedals since they came out. From Durace down. These pedals perform great. You do drop a small amount of weight with more expensive pedals but this is nominal. for the price these pedals perform. I not only use them, I bought some for my son and he loves them.

            Upon receiving this order found out the pedals did not fit with the clips on my road shoes, paid 4.99 shipping to start with and got charged another 7.99 for returning the road pedals in new condition, never even put them on my road bike. You have totally lost my business from now on. Paying $7.99 for a return label is not my idea of the way to treat a past good customer.

                Great pedal at this price point. I was replacing an old set of mountain bike pedals I was using on my road bike. These are lighter, sleeker and feel better under my feet but take some effort to get clipped into. I think it will just take time to get used to, but it's a bit frustrating. In hindsight, I would have looked for a two-sided pair which would help in getting clipped in.

                  I've only been out about 3 times since I replaced my pedals. This is my first set of pedals that are clipped in with the shoes. The tension adjust was easy and I was able to fine tune my pedals in a few minutes. Very smooth ride with zero issues so far.

                  If you are looking for some basic road pedals that work great but you arent concerned with saving every possible gram look no further. Great deal if you are getting your first pair, you can always upgrade later but if you are going to wait for them to wear out first its going to take a while.

                      Installed these on my Nashbar AL4 Road Bike and found them easy to adjust to and use. Light and functional. No adjustments necessary, but they can be adjusted which is a nice feature. These pedals are a good value. I ride about 75-100 miles a week and find them more than adequate.
