I bought some, felt the bearings, and decided to return them post haste. It may just have been a grease issue and would have cleared up, but I was able to pick up a pair of Ultegra SPDs for the same price, and that's my preference.

I use these on my indoor spin bike now. pros are that they are cheap, lightweight, and reliable--also SPD compatible though the Ritchey cleat works best. cons are that the platform is pretty small and they are kinda hard to get into.

I had a pair several years ago. I sent them back. Plus side: they are light and worked ok plus you can get them cheap. Minus-I didn't like the small platform and they were difficult to get in and out of. I'll take the extra weight of my Looks-like them much more.

They are OK, but they don't compair to Ultegra or Dura Ace SPD which support your shoe better. Best thing about them is they are light weight, but kind of suck on long rides without the good foot support.

I tried them a couple of years ago and didn't like them because they were difficult to get into and had no float. Tried using SPD cleats with them and that made them easier to enter but difficult to release. I now use SPD's on my commuter and Speedplays on the good road bike.

These are basically rip-offs of the original Shimano road spd pedal. My wife uses them (and Performance brand) because she likes to use mtn shoes and not hassle with exposed cleats.

If you don't mind a smaller pedal, they're decent and worth $60 IMO. They're kinda chinzy, but I've seen worse. Be careful not to loosen the tension screw too much, or it'll come out and all the parts drop off. Monkey with it indoors on a flat surface (where you can find the screw, nut and spring if this happens).

Maybe I'll get a spare pair for her. There's an exciting Christmas present.

My bike came Ritchey style spd pedals. Crossing over from mtb to road, the spd system worked great - could use the same shoe. After about two months of riding I upgraded to a carbon sole road shoe. Trying to find that little one sided platform after the light turns green was like playing ice hockey in leather soled loafers. I scratched the crap out of my new shoes on two rides. Luckily I had two sided mtb spd pedals laying around. Yes, you can feel the rotational weight, but you can find them at red lights easily.

Now I am trying to decide between Speedplays, new Shimano spdl, or Looks.

I'll ship you the one sided spd pedals if you want to try them first.
