Not that good at all
on August 13, 2012
I bought these pedals because I like to spend as much time barefoot as possible. While the concept and design look pretty good, the execution is pretty bad. The platform size of these pedals is much too small to be comfortable when barefoot. Also the bearings on the pedals axles are very bad, very gritty feeling. They were actually so stiff that it felt like I was riding one or two gears higher than the actual gear I was in. I tried them out and had to stop after only a mile or so and put on my stiff-soled flip flops. Good thing I brought them.
Only good thing is that they didn't break when I had to stand on them while climbing a steep grassy hill while also hauling an extra 60+ lbs (my son and his trailer) behind my bike. I was a bit surprised that they held up to that pressure. But I think I'll be putting my aluminum platform pedals back on.
