At first I heard the right one start making a clicking sound like it wanted to unclip while I was riding. It never did. I tried more grease, but it didn't help. Then when I had my bike in the shop to get my new aero bars on, they told me the right pedal's bearing was shot and that I needed new ones. They gave me a price but I decided to get them online (I can't buy everything there!)

|Packing Slip, Cleat Lube, and The Box|
|Lots of Documentation|
|Stainless Steel has a nice look.|
|Adjustable float screws on the left side.|
|Even Green Cleats!|
The nice thing about installing pedals is that they quite possibly may be the easiest thing to install on your steed. They looked great on Green Lightning. I also ordered some of the cleat lubricant to help keep everything working well.
When I first tried them out there were really hard to get clipped in. I mean really hard. A bit stiff out of the box as you might say. However, on my first ride, I could hardly believe how smooth they were. I guess its one of those things that you don't really know how bad something has gotten (the old pedals) until you replace them. They felt just awesome.

Slowly but surely they have become easier to clip in. It has taken quite a few rides, but they clip in pretty easily now. The float is adjustable, and I have it set to float as much as possible without my shoes hitting the frame. I really like the float of the pedals, as my knees continue to thank me.
All in all I couldn't be happier. I'm glad I got the stainless as it wasn't that much more, as opposed to the titanium, which are a LOT more. Green Lightning just got a little bit faster.
