Being clipped in makes a BIG difference. More power, feels great.
You can get out of these really easily. I haven't fallen over or had any major scares. The tension was set right already when the pedals arrived.
The versatility of being able to ride either clipped or clipless is great. I rarely ride without being clipped in anymore, but when I need to, it's great to be able to do so comfortably.
The not so good:
A very few times, I've grounded out these pedals while riding fast around a hard corner while pedaling. They do have a little less clearance than a pure clip pedal. Not like it's a huge common problem, but it's happened a few times. Only happens when I'm really pushing hard. Now that I'm used to it, I can easily avoid. But if I was a super-serious rider, this could be a problem.
I've had mine for a month, they were ready to go straight out of the box.
If you want some casual clipless pedals that will make your work-out riding a bit more effective, these are what you're looking for.
The outer area of the pedal is a very strong steel. The pedal's alloy core is colored exactly like the LX group, and as that is a trekking / touring group with the strongest materials and this is a trekking / touring pedal that has the same coloring and theme, then I believe that these are LX trekking pedals. As such, that means they work perfectly, all the time, and they're designed to last at least as long as a bike or two.
Worthy of note is that these are a bit easier to access the platform side, albeit the methodology isn't typical. Instead of flipping it or "scuffing" with your toe, you can just pedal "around" and set your foot right down on it when it's up. This is a bit faster than typical, so its possibly less distracting in city traffic. Also, the SPD attachment is quite strong, so if you happen to mash down with a sneaker, there won't be any damage to the pedal. This is the only "combo pedal" that I've been able to flip while going up a steep hill.
As for the weight, this might be the one SPD pedal that makes your knees feel better instead of worse. The somewhat extra weight adds a beneficial flywheel effect to the pedals which can make it easier to spin a faster cadence. That's quite good for training yourself to do well. It also matches up with the intent of the trekking / touring group in facilitating an easier, lasting, approach to a long distance ride.
Of course these were easy to install and all you need is an ordinary 15mm wrench. They are a little on the heavy side, but not heavy enough for me to complain. I suppose if you are knocking off each ounce of weight possible you may want to keep looking. They are incredibly strong and I keep a great footing on the flat side of the pedals while wearing sneakers during freestyle and mountain runs.
Really I can't find any reason NOT to purchase these except for the weight issue. Like others said, the weight can help with your cadence due to the flywheel effect they tend to create. I noticed some weren't happy with the fact that you have to feel around with your foot to make sure you are on the right side of the pedal while clipping in... but it isn't a big deal. You can clip in quick enough that you don't lose significant momentum or time even if you have to flip the pedal with your toe. Also, you can feel whether or not its the smooth side.. very noticeable.
EDIT 9/17/2012: After 4 months of beating these pedals up, they have proven to be indestructible! The strength of these makes the weight well worth it.
quality materials - solid construction, feels like it'll last forever
simple installation - simple instructions, simple installation, quality components
evenly balance - weight difference between flat versus clipped side is minimal so the pedal does NOT rotate (forcing clipped side to always be down)...makes a big difference so that you're not always flipping pedal and then clipping in - can be the difference between that awkward fall, or not being able to get off the line fast enough. HUGE BONUS compared to some other dual platform shoes.
ease of clip in/out - i had never used clip in pedals before so i have no comparison, but i was able to get the hang of it within 2 minutes. stock tension seemed to work just fine for me...to date i haven't had any falls ;)
fairly heavy - should not be an issue as the only people i can imagine looking to cut weight on their bikes are very competetive riders who wouldn't even be considering a dual platform pedal to begin with - so not really a negative in my mind.
OVERAL VERY HAPPY WITH THE PEDALS AND LOOK FORWARD TO REHAB EACH AFTERNOON 25 MILES AT A TIME!
BEING CLIPPED IN REALLY HELPS - CHANGES RIDING FROM STRICTLY A PUSH MOTION TO A PUSH AND PULL TO REALLY WORK ALL OF YOUR LEG - REALLY CAN NOTICE THE DIFFERENCE IN LOW GEARS WHEN GOING UP A STEEP INCLINE WORKING YOUR HAMSTRING.
