Rated 2 out of 5 by MrStrong Low quality waste of money
I bought these pedals so I could clip in for proper riding but also use my bike to cruise down to the shops in normal shoes. There are two big problems:
1) Even on the tightest setting they are still lose when clipped in and so you can feel movement between your foot and the pedal and I've had it come unclipped all together a few times when putting the power down, out of the saddle, which is downright dangerous.
2) The bolts that point up on the side that you would use with a normal shoe are too big, this means they have worn through the soles of a few pairs of my shoes even on very short rides. A few of these bolts have also fallen out, which is actually an improvement, but the fact they fall out doesn't say much for the quality.
Please spend a few extra quid and get a better quality alternative because it's going to cost me more than that to replace the shoe's that these pedals have broken... and to buy some new higher quality pedals.

These are great pedals that allow for use with quick-release cycling shoes, but can also be used with trainers, or other shoes.
The only reasons I didn't give a 5 star are: first, they take quite a bit of adjustment till you get the balance between quick-release and security of keeping your feet attached to the pedals; second, one of the pegs fell off the second time I went for a ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great touring pedal
Very nicely finished pedal which I bought specifically for a touring and sight-seeing holiday when I didn't want to be using cleats every day. The flat side's studs are very grippy - even in the wet with flat soled sandals- and the platform big enough to be comfortable without being too bulky. On the other side, clipping in and out is clean and positive and spring tension is easily adjusted. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Great pedals but can scratch your soles
I have had these pedals on my road bike for about 9 months. They are fantastic, and the cleat releases very easily. I did have them too loose at one point, which resulted in my foot disengaging on fast climb.
I've only got two issues; I have noticed are that there seems to be some play in the cleat on the upstroke. Again, this may be because I have them to loose.
The other issue is if you get the wrong side of the pedal up, you can scratch the bottom of your shoe.
I'll definitely be checking out the double sided versions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Light and well made but poor seals
Lovely pedals which are reasonably light bearing in mind the size of the flat and look really good too. the flat side has aggressive metal studs which really
hold your feet in place well if wearing trainers or shoes, and the clip in side works perfectly, if you want a pair of this type of pedal then I would definitely consider these, the shimano version don't have sealed bearings and weigh considerably more.
The only issue I had with mine was after 100 miles the left pedal rubber seal came away and the pedal dumped its grease all over the office floor so had to replace them as without grease seal bearings would fail, crc customer service was amazing in sorting this out for me, service second to none.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous These seem a good idea at first. One side for "normal" shoes and one side for cleats. But as with so many multi purpose items they do neither job well.
I got them for commuting, but found them stiff, heavy and awkward to clip into, always ending up on the wrong side of the pedals.
I have now switched all my bikes to egg beater style pedals, which is a superior system to spd's (and I have been using spd'd on road and mtb's since the mid nineties)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Sealed Bearing, cool and simple design, and lighter than the
best purchase ever did. before this purchase, I was doubting about this wellgo or shimano PD530, but finally I decided for this amazing wellgo. Sealed Bearing, cool and simple design, and more lighter than PD530. what else can we expect?
as probably you would think, the pedal surface is not slippery when one is using a normal sneakers.
the only downside: once cleated, I thought the shoe fit well in the bottom of the pedal, but not, is just in contact with the cleat, at least with my old shimano shoes.
don't hesitate and get one!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Nice but short lived
Bought these in feb 2011, theses are realy good pedals with a great flip side when not cliped in. however after 15 months of easy use they seezed up, there is a roller bearing on the outside and a bush on inside next to crank arm, this is the problem end (Can't be sorted)shame realy as its a pedal when its going.
