not commuter pedals

If you're in and out of traffic, stopping at lights and numerous four way stops, these pedals are not for you. The spd clips gravitate toward the bottom, so first you have to turn the pedal over before you can clip in. Plus, it is very awkward riding them, lacking slip resistance, until you clip in. (Perhaps this is not such a problem for experienced cyclists.) Otherwise, these pedals work very well. They are great for touring outside of city streets.

This was an extremely helpful review. I hadn't even thought about my foot slipping around.

And as if to prove the pointthe pedals won't even stay upright for the picture. The good news is they aren't a big problem if you learned to ride with toe clips. They are light and let you with SPD shoes. You can actually get off your bike and go into the store without stumbling around like a drunk on ice skates. At least that's what i look like with "Look" style or Speedplay cleats on my road shoes. I put these on my road bike after too many times grabbing wrong shoes in a rush.
