Model/Year: 5050 (silver)

Pros: -Adjustable pins = great traction
-Look good
-Extra wide platform

Cons: -The adjustable pins bend and break
-The bearings wore out after a few short months of the season

Recommendation: The bearings wearing out prematurely really killed the pedal for me. Up until that point, I loved how much traction they provided.

Pros: Feels like you have glue on the bottom of your shoes! Great grip and they look sweet!

Cons: Pins will come loose. Blue loc-tite them in and then ride like the wind.

Recommendation: I recommend these for people who like to take there foot off easily without being clipped in. I'm use to putting mine down around certain corners because of motocross, so it just feels more natural to me, plus you can go on small hikes for great views with regular shoes on.

Pros: They are great pedals and have a lot of traction.

Cons: One of the bolts that hold the plates together fell off and i lost it

Recommendation: It is a great pedal and is awsome because you can completly rebuild it but keep the bolts tight so you don't losse one too.
