    I love these pedals. They are reliable and work well. Had them for 10 years, and other than adjusting them from time to time, no problems at all.

    Pros
    Inexpensive. Easy to adjust. Work extremely well.

    Cons
    Lighter options out there.

    These are the standard for mid/entry-level clipless, and they're hard to beat. They're horrible at shedding ice or snow, but in any other conditions I have yet to find anything better.

    Pros
    Great platform, solid connection, decent mud clearing, hyper reliable, easy to find

    Cons
    A little heavy, but decent for the price

    I replaced my crank brother egg beater for these because I had a hard time getting out of the egg beaters. These are adjustable and I have not fallen with these pedals. They are nice pedals for the money.

    Pros
    Cheep, adjustable, and easy to use.

    If these are your first clips, lower the sensitivity all the way to the lowest setting ASAP. I suffered for about a month before doing this. Lots of falls b/c I couldn't get out of the clips. Once I lowered the settings, I haven't had any falls where the clip was to blame.

    Pros
    Low cost entry level pedal. I am new to clips so I can't make any comparisons. I like them though. I put about 500 miles on them since June. About 40% of that was singletrack. They still work great!

    I would recomend these pedals expecially for a beginner there is some clicking noises that are solved temporarly by a good cleaning and greasing after about 5 months. Adjustability is nice as springs wear after time.

    Pros
    cheap durable

    Cons
    not light but good price makes up for that
    some rusting
    sand getting in causing a clicking noise occasionally.

    First set of clipless pedals. Easy to adjust to low tension and dial in as improve/become more comfortable with them.

    Pros
    Easy install, but same for any pedal. Easy to clip in. Has small platform for just moving the bike without correct shoes.

    Cons
    A little rust after a few years of use.

    Bought them for $35 online. Can't beat them for the price. Work in the sand, mud, and anything else you can think of.

    Pros
    Easy to install, easy to adjust, take a beating.

    Cons
    Nothing yet. Rock solid.

    I bought these as my first pedals for my Ex8 with the idea I would soon upgrade to a "better" set . I'm not going to fix something that isn't broken . These are my first clipless pedals and I have no reason not to keep them .

    Pros
    inexpensive ,simple adjustment for tension ,basic, easy to clean , light enough for me.

    Cons
    none

    Great pedals for beginners-advanced riders!

    Pros
    Inexpensive, durable, easy adjustment, longevity, stays clipped in well but releases easily when you need to.

    Cons
    If you care about a few grams, then weight but those little savings really only help street bikes.

    These are the pedal for the budget minded rider that runs clipless. These are Shimano's workhorse pedals. They does as their intended, not fancy or flashy, but get the job done.

    Pros
    Price, setup, longevity, they stay clipped when you want and release easliy when you need them to.

    Cons
    Obviously not as high end as the XTs or XTRs, but they work.
