Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I am an avid mountain biker and am replacing my original pair after 7ish years of use. I love these pedals. The clips are perfect (never have had any issues). My only knock is that as flats they are pretty slippery. However, i usually ride clipped in except for pretty technical smaller sections so it is great for that quick switch.
