Pros: inexpensive, tough, grip

Cons: bearings, weight,

Recommendation: I rode these for a while before switching to clipless. They offer a lot of grip for the $. Not for weight weenies.

Pros: Great grip

Cons: A bit heavy
Bearings are a weak point

Recommendation: Cheap option for dowhnill flat pedals, especially if you do not intend to use them often.

Pros: ease of service

Cons: mix of cast and replaceable pins
paint chips easily

Recommendation: I got these for my wife to replace the stock plastic pedals on her bike. She loves them. Keeps her feet where they should be. For the money hard to beat.

Pros: Cheap, Good for light riding

Cons: Cheap paint, the pins will bend and break off. Do not hold up to heavy use.

Recommendation: I rode on a set of these for about a year. After a few months the permanent mounted pins began to bend. After a year, they were all bent or sheared off. The adjustable pins were still intact but it wasn't enough to provide good traction. Buy some 50/50s and don't look back.

Pros: Cheaper, light, resilient, easy to maintain.

Cons: non-sealed bearings and the paint chips off easily.

Recommendation: These are some of the best bang for your buck pedals out there. They've been around for a while now and are still a damn good choice considering cost, durability, and ease of maintenance.
