If I have anything negative to say its that (being a entry level MTB set) ,the cleats that are included are the SH51 single release type, meaning you have to twist to disengage, and Ive had some nasty crashes with them in the past, getting used to SPDs. I prefer the SH56 multi-release cleats, which are better for beginners, offroad and commuting, and allow you to just pull your foot straight off the pedal in an emergency, but still hold onto the pedal well enough for bunny hops and sprints.
Cranked them all the way down to lightest setting and rode much better coming in and out as needed. Not sure what the benefit of cranking them up higher would be. Sure - a couple of times I clanged on rocks and the disengaged, but easy enough to re-engage. Once confident at the lightest setting - these are the greatest things to improve your ride and your ride efficiency. I was able to keep up with much better mountain bikers after using these pedals / cleats just two times!
Other than the color, the pedals are good, as Shimano products tend to be.
They are also tough. I let a friend borrow the pedals, and he clipped a concrete post with them (because he was riding in the dark with no headlight - apparently he thought his blinding brilliance was enough to light up the path) and wiped out. Other parts of the bike were bent out of shape, but the pedal, which took the brunt of the impact, only had cosmetic damage.
Careful not to strip the screws when putting them in. If you're not accustomed to this type of thing I recommend having a bike shop put them in for you (they probably won't charge you anything, especially if you bought these or the bike at their shop). If you're new, LOOSEN THEM all the way so it's easiest to clip in and out. (That's very important.) You can adjust them later as you wish.
