    “Love them...”

    The Good:

    Feel great grip is awesome, no issues with the sealed bearings. I have been in a few diggers ad banged them on some rocks and scratched them up but nothing has come lose. I found to make sure the allen key bolts for the plats a tight and lock tight 'ed. I have two bikes and have them on both. I like the plate changing to get the peddle to match whatever bike you have

    The Bad:

    I don't have any really yet...

    Overall Review:

    I am not saying they are the be all end all of peddles but i have two sets on two different bikes and I love them... don't mean you will. And over some time I am sure I will run into problems but after a few years with them no big issues yet

    “Not worth the price”

    The Good:

    Good concave shape. Very good traction with the set screws

    The Bad:

    Not as durable as it should be for the price. The removable plates are unnecessary. Profile could be slimmer.

    Overall Review:

    I love the shape and traction on the 50/50's but they are not bomb proof. There are too many moving parts. I would not buy again.

    “half good half bad”

    maintenance, i had to rebuild mine within 3 months of riding them. The plates and pedal get beat up and more difficult to change

    Overall Review:

    “If God made pedals...”

    The Good:

    super durable and they last forever. i have had mine for about 3 1/2 years and they have worked perfectly good after much bike abuse. these pedals have lasted me through 2 bikes and not one problem, but...

    The Bad:

    i just broke off the pedal all the way through when i noticed it wasnt feeling right under my foot. THE ONLY THING BAD ABOUT THESE PEDALS are the cone pins, and the little allen bolts that hold the removable plates. I replaced those cone pins with regular cylindrical ones
