These are perfect for general riding around, or for your errand or commuter recumbent. They combine the efficiency of an SPD clip-in mechanism (on one side) with the convenience of a platform pedal (opposite side). Sealed mechanism bearings with chromoly steel spindles, SPD compatible. They weigh in at 530 grams per pair.
These are great if you do not ride your bike 100% of the time with cleats. Now I have both cleated shoes and sandals, and wish both sides were clipless. However, finding the correct side to clip in isn't a real problem, except it is harder in darkness.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
