I bought these peddles from a local REI store (and paid way more than i would have if I bought them here) That being said. I think they are great. I was just starting to get into cycling. I ride my back for fitness, as well as around town to the bars. I love having both options, and I probably ride around more because of it. Until i have a <15lb road bike and need to save every last gram, I will continue to use these peddles on all my bikes.
