"Bought this for the daily commute on my CX bike. They are quite heavy but in this case that means robust, no punctures so far although that might be the kiss of death. Once up to speed they roll fine, you wouldn't expect a zippy race tyre, that is not their job. As a bonus they have a reflective line around the rim, handy for making you more visible from the side. These are an absolute bargain for commuting or canal paths. I'd not hesitate to buy a set again."
Pros: Great Value, Rugged, Good Fit

"firm impression was these are a great race sock, lightweight and wick away moisture keeping the feet dry. Unfortunately they don't seem particularly hard wearing, after only a dozen or so outings I've a hole in one already!"
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: Wears Out Easily

"well made and comfortable socks. Not for hot weather as they are reasonably thick, great for running in cooler weather and as they are that wee bit thicker also good for on the bike to keep the feet warmer."
Pros: Great Value, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit
"i use this for longer rides where you need something to keep you going. It seems to do the job and taste isn't bad. Also good for a recovery drink after a long run. Offers better value than a lot of the powders around."
"Like a number of others I was swayed by the price, 8 quid seemed like a no lose buy. I was wrong, they are poor fitting and despite much mucking about it is nearly impossible to get a good fit, only by having them on very tight and uncomfortable could I get them watertight. Have had other sighs that have been good but could not recommend these."
"I bought these as I use my MTB for various things, commuting, going out with the kids, going to the stops and occassionally off roading. The beauty of these pedals is that as one side is like a traditional pedal you can happily go out with a pair of trainers on but when you want your proper bike shoes for a real ride you can do that too as the cleats are on the other side. Obviously these will never be the lightest pedals and are not performance oriented however they are exceptionally practical if you don't always want to don the bike shoes to use your bike."
Are these pedals double sided? Presume they work with Shimano M076 shoes?
One side has the cleat mount, the other side is a plain pedal to use when you are using regular shoes
