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 put these on my daughter's bike. She typically rides clipless in the summer and platforms in the winter with studded tires on our icy roads and trails, or occasionally platforms with casual shoes. These save me a few minutes of pedal changeover a few times per year. I originally bought them for my commute bike, and I'll probably order a second set soon.
