Strength:

Very lite, strong and almost maintenance free

Weakness:

Just like them, it has sharp heads ( anyway whatever your pedal is, it will damage your shin if you drop bad )

If your on the trail and hates SPD pedalsbecause it's hard to use ion technical rough off roads them this pedal is one if the best choice. You can use any kind of shoes on them, firm grips and most of all as they claim, it's inexpensive yet can do a good trai job.

Strength:

Looks, grip, lightweight, durable, secure pins, cheap.

Weakness:

Crap paint durability, turly disastrous bearings.

Fantastic when new, they give you a great feeling. Very reassuring to ride with these pedals and almost any surface, they even work when your shoes are caked with mud. The price is fantastic too. Unfortunately, almost exactly 3 months in the bearings started grinding, then failed copletely. One side collapsed beyond recognition, the other was just about about to do the same. I am not saying this will happen to all pedals as a lot of the reviews below are very good, I am saying that mine fell apart. I suppose regular stripping and greasing would help, but I had giving them a good shot of grease about a month ago, and had not done nay hard riding since then. If price is important, get these and keep them service. These are gerat pedals when they work, but mine failed so catastrophically I wouldn't feel the same confidence if I bought a replacement set. I can't give them a 5 for value because the bearings could and should be better, especially as I have had cheaper pedals last much longer. 3 overall because they were great when they worked, but the bearings really do leave something to be desired.

Strength:

They have excellent grips, wide, perfect, and the price is the last thing you need to be sure that they are worth buying.

Weakness:

On a slope, my foot slipped, and I "scratched" my ankle with them... If something 2mm deep and over 4mm wide can be called a scratch. In other words, MAKE SURE YOUR FOOT DOESN'T SLIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They are excellent pedals for anything like trial or mountain biking, even for downhill. Just make sure your foot is steady on them, because then it can't slip of the grips.

Strength:

Price. Amount of grip. Not that heavy. They haven't needed a service yet.

Weakness:

None so far, except for the chunks they can tear from your leg on the very rare occasion your feet might slip.

For £12, these truly are the dogs bollox. So good, I'm buying another pair for another bike.

Strength:

Those 616's again.
Well cheap.
Good quality.
Makes a nice change from clipless.
Learn how to bunny properly without the aid.
Plenty of different colours.

Weakness:

None that I have noticed so far. Ask me in four months about the bearings....
Some might prefer a different lable.

Why are there so many Brits posting about these pedals?

Paid 11.99 pounds mail order over two months ago, and so far their good reviews seem justified. Just cant seem to get on with clipless at all, so thought I would try these shin scrapers.

Much better confidence whilst riding, grip almost as well as spds yet with easier get-off (doh). Just be careful of your shins.

Also, make sure that you tighten down the pins with the philips screw head below the pedal, as mine came slightly loose out of the box. Maybe thats why some complain that they have lost pins. A few spare pins in the box would be appreciated also.

Apart from that, cant fault them at all. Review might change when I find 12 tram line scars going up my legs.....

Weakness:

bit too cheap for some?

Yeah for £13 how can you go wrong? If you're thinking about flatties but aren't sure go for a pair of these, however there are better pedals on the market if you're looking to spend a lot more. But for the money how can you fault them? my bearings were shot after 6months (i got the unsealed) but that's easy to fix, or cheap to replace.

Strength:

Cheap, Grip, Replacable pins, sealed bearings.

Weakness:

Not as much grip as DMR,

For the proce nothing is as good as these. The pins aren't amazing and wear down very quickly. Try and replace them for DMR pins, they are far better.
also after a couple of rides the bearings started grinding and sqeuaking. Once they had been filled with grease they have worked perfectly ever since.
