Strength:

Inexpensive SPD's that work great. I have had very little issues getting in and out of these pedals even when they get crud in them. Have a minimal outer fram to protect. Super bang for your buck.

Weakness:

On the heavier side I guess for a minimalist SPD without a platform, but I'm reaching here.

I've had these for 4 years and they have never let me down......and really, their 30 bucks!!

Strength:

I bought a new road bike that came with these pedals and was immediately impressed with their predictability, reliability and the ease of unclipping.then keeping them dialed in. Just tried them on my MTB and will never go back. Other products have left me feeling either trapped or too loose to go for it.

Weakness:

Not the easiest pedals to clip back into.

If you're like me and being able to get out fast without accidentally wrenching your foot out of the pedal is important to you - go for these pedals. Great value - thank you Wellgo!

Strength:

They work...just.

Weakness:

They don't work very well.

You get what you pay for. Bearings are rubbish, can be difficult to clip in sometimes. More importantly, can be hard to clip out of sometimes. I use them on my racer now, to scared to use them on mtb, afraid i'll get stuck. In there defence though, I am still using the cleats that came with my Shimano pedals, which are meant to be interchangeable. The pedals come with cleats, so probably using them will help this problem of clipping out in a hurry...

Strength:

Good Value, purchased for less than the price of a pair of Shimano cleats.

Weakness:

None so far.

The pedals work great for commuting back and forth to work, they are simple & have predicable release. How can I go wrong for $10?

Strength:

Excellent first time pedal to use, great value for the price...easy clip to learn on.

Weakness:

hard to get a proper setting for stiffness, need to play with it quite a bit to get it just right...black paint scratches up really easily...dirt clogs up fairly quickly to make for a hard entry into the clips.

These pedals are excellent pedals to get if you are a first time user of clipless pedals, I used them for one season and have had no real problems with them, and I was very hard on them....after this first year though, I'm ready to get new pedals, as these just don't cut it when you want to go hard.

Strength:

i paid 25.00 can for these pedals,durable enough as i'm 250 lbs and ride fairly hard.

Weakness:

as you can expect,(for their design)they don't shed mud very well and are very tight until broken in.

great pedal for the money,I couldn't find anything even close .I bought a second set after torture testing these,a great value.I ride a lot (mostly xc).once broken in,they clip and unclip very well,but until then,they are pretty tight,even on the lightest setting.(be carefull offroading!)

Strength:

Price is low, Extremely adjustable

Weakness:

Durability might be an issue?

These is a perfect set for someone who wants to try clipless for the first time. They are inexpensive and pretty durable, mine took 6 months of hard abuse bouncing off rocks, stumps and whatever else is around, the front retaining piece finally broke off. Like others have said they release kind of rough compared to others but if this your first set of clipless, you won't even notice

Strength:

Extreamely simple adjustability. There's a little "meter" on the pedal that tells you how hard they are set.

Weakness:

Not the best with clearing mud.

Part of pedal that actually grabs the cleat broke off on mine (see below). This part should be stronger/larger than it is.

These pedals are decent pedals for a beginner rider, or for something cheap to get you by for a few months. They were my first set of clipless pedals and I liked them when I had them, as I had never ridden anything else.

In retrospect they don't release as nicely as my Shimano's do, which is how I broke them (trying to force my way out of them quickly). I rode them for about 4 months of hard abuse. I bounced them off of countless rocks and took them through the mud. They aren't sealed very well for muddy or wet riding, when I took them off the bearings on one of them were a little rough rolling.

I wouldn't buy them again, especially for the $40 that I payed for them, but they can be had for about half that, and they would be a good cheap pedal to buy to see if you like clip-ins.
