Familiarity: I've used it several times

I put them on again this morning, after not wearing them for 6 months of Spring and Summer. I never really liked the fit before, but today I yanked them off after 10 minutes. They don't fit well. They are just tapering tubes, with no shape. Although they have a band of silicone at the top, they seem to stay up only by virtue of constricting my leg. The top opening of a size L is only 16 inches. I'm not a big guy, 5' 10" and 162 pounds. The circumference of my thigh is just under 18" where the top of the Castelli leg warmer rides. They were uncomfortable last winter, and after riding a lot this summer, they are unwearable. I always wore Sugoi, but Sugoi started making their leg warmers an inch shorter, and they no longer fit well, so I kept these hoping to get used to them. I wish that I had sent them back when I got them.

My experience may be much different than yours. Most people love these pedals. I purchased these for a Bacchetta Corsa recumbent bike. Because it is a little difficult for a newbie to get started and clip in on a recumbent (especially uphill), a four-sided pedal can be a big advantage. A lot of recumbent riders use them. The Egg Beater 3s work fine, but I don't think I clip in any faster than I did with my Ultegra SPD-SL pedals. Part of the problem may be a modification of my right shoe to account for a leg length discrepancy. My cleat is on a 3/8" platform made from hard rubber, which sort of guided in the SPD-SL pedal, but does not aid in guiding in the EB cleat. I end up fishing around to clip in. I also use the road cleat adapters.
As for pedaling, I don't feel any hot spots. They are comfortable with my Sidi Genius 5 Pro shoes. I have never accidentally unclipped. The pricing was great and delivery very prompt.
