    I use this in combination with the multi release cleats(SH56) and set the pedal to the lowest tension. Never fell off the bike even as a first time clipless user. really easy to clip in and out of. i might adjust the tension a little bit harder to minimize accidental clipping out.

    would recommend this pedal in combination of the multi release cleats if you're a beginner.

    BTW, this pedal would require an 8MM allen wrench to install.

    Pros
    rebuildable, mud shedding design, adjustable tension, easy to clip in and out.

    Cons
    When you set the tension to the lowest, you can accidentally clip out of the pedal.

    Get these, they are awesome!

    Pros
    The ability to adjust the tightness! Love these!

    Cons
    I was unable to unclip a couple times and fell pretty hard, this could be due to my lack of experience with this type of pedals or they could be too tight.

    I'd buy these again. Not Shimano's top of the line, but I don't notice.

    Great performing, long-lasting pedal. Rebuildable.

    Cons
    None.

    I have used these pedals on my past two bikes and will continue. Solid, reliable pedals.

    Pros
    Reliable, inexpensive, don't have to think about them.

    Easy to clip in, even when packed with mud or ice.

    Cons
    None

    These came with my first bike. When I bought my next bike, I upgraded. After going through a few pedals, all of which seemed to have some annoying idiosyncrasies, I eventually came back to these un-sexy, but dependable old standbys.

    Pros
    This is the epitome of a standard quality/standard price procuct. Nothing fancy or bling, just solid performance in most conditions. Long-lasting and trouble-free.

    Cons
    Heavier than most clipless. Retains mud.

    I really like these pedals. I have mine on the minimum setting, so I can dab a foot if needed. This is the only clipless pedal I've used. No complaints here.

    Pros
    Tuff! Adjustable spring tension, Ease of use.

    Cons
    None.

    They are a very hardy and reliable pedal. The platform is large enough to allow a rider to keep pedaling. even with a failed attempted clip-in.

    Pros
    Easy in, easy out...

    Cons
    They are difficult to clean, back in by the spring.

    These are solid pedals and they continue to hold up well after virtually zero maintenance over the past 3 years.

    Pros
    Simple design, rugged, great at shedding mud.

    Cons
    A bit boring, especially compared to the Crank Bros stuff.
