Also my third set
on 1 August 2012
In a multi-bike, multi-user, multi-purpose household, these pedals allow casual and more serious biking without time spent fiddling around swapping pedals. The flat side is fine for casual runs to the shops while the clip side helps on longer rides when you have your bike shoes on. I have an MTB with the double-sided plastic clips, and these metal ones are SO much better.
Obviously, only one side has the clip, so if you are constantly on and off the bike but trying to clip in, this will be frustrating. But I don't see that as an issue.
If this is your first set of clip-ins, back off the tension to nothing, then tighten three "clicks" put on your special SPD shoes and find a spot where you can lean against something (a picnic table is handy) then clip each foot in and out at least 50 times. That's right, 50 times. 100 times would be better. If you just get on and ride with these, chances are good you will fall over!
