They look promising but how do they perform?

I have had them for abot three weeks. They work great, pretty lite, ~230 grams. Since the stock cleats have 6 deg of float, I did not need any adjusting after inital install on shoes. Not much to play w/ just very simple.

I am using the Sidi's and you HAVE to use the bolts w/ the look adapter plates as the one's from Shimano are to short.

Pretty lame that you can't use the provided bolts, but I have SIDIs too, so that's really good to know, thanks.

Apparently, the new pedals "might" not be insulated from the dreaded "Look squeak".

I have tried several pedals in the last couple of years. Suffered with severe foot pain on long rides. Speed plays were the worst. I paid 240.00 for the pedals from my good buddy the local bike shop owner, no breaks here and he sponsors the bike team. But I figured if the relieved my foot pain they would be worth it. Installed them at the shop right after the purchase. Went for a test ride. Had more float than I though they would. Let the bike shop owner (Ben)try them out, he was also surprised by the amount of float. While on the trainer at home I noticed that they did squeek. Then I put toe covers on the shoes for the winter rides and the noise went away. Come summer when the toe covers come off the shoes I will try lubing the cleat. Oh, It's the most comfortable pedals I have ever ridden on.
