I will write a review as soon as I give them a proper testing this weekend.

Just did a 18 mile, short road ride on them (using the Cross bike) in the rain. So far so good.

Great pedals. I had to shim them (included) due to the high lugs of my Pearl Izumi shoes. I didn't think the lugs were that high, but I guess so. With regular eggies, I didn't need to shim them so I'm curious to see what happens when I use these shoes with the regular ones (will there be slop?).

I'm planning to get a mtn ride in soon (should be muddy) and will give another report.

I'm happy to say the platform is SOLID. Very similar to an ATAC feeling, but the 4-sided inner pedal lets you hook up right away. Rather than spinning the pedal if you miss the cleat. Should be great for jumping on the bike.
