Wellgo WAM-M3 Pedals
The Wellgo WAM-M3 Pedals feature a new retention mechanism that allows easier cleat engagement thanks to a wider front port. The low profile forged alloy body of the M3 makes this a great lightweight pedal. Wellgo's CrMo axle and sealed bearings provide a long smooth service life.
No problems at all with the pedals, was just my first set. I have moved on to Crank Brothers now since I wanted a different style. Still have these on a different bike though!
I bought these as my first set of clipless pedals, and so far I'm quite pleased. Clipping in was difficult at first, but has gotten easier with use; retention is solid and clipping out is effortless. I haven't used these on the trails yet, but so far I'm enjoying them. For $25, they seem incredibly solid, even compared to shimano pedals. Highly recommended.
I purchased these as my first set of clipless pedals to try. They are easy to adjust and lock into. Haven't tried them on the trails yet. On the road they work very well.
Yes, I read all the reviews. I used locktite on the adjustment screws and then adjusted them. Pedals are difficult to clip into at first but this was expected. For the price you can't beat them. Secure, fairly easy to release and stable under foot.
Good pedals for the money. Easy to clip in/out of and light. Have used the same pedals on 4 different bikes. They've lasted very well. They don't shed mud the best, but Egg Beaters are the best for that. Just keep an eye on the Phillips head screws as they will back out if left unattended.
I have 3 sets of these on my bikes (MTB and cyclocross), my oldest pair is 10 yrs old and still working fine. They have sealed bearings and are easy to take apart and lube/clean. At 302 grams these are lighter than some of the more popular (and WAY more expensive) pedals like XT,XTR, and crank bro. candy 3. If you need new cleats for them most every LBS is going to have the shimano sh51 cleats which I have used and they work fine. Save yourself 100 bucks and a few grams and try these out.
I've used these pedals for over ten years. After the first couple rides, when I was getting them dialed in, I haven't had a problem. They shed mud pretty good too. I can't recommend them enough, especially for the price. If you are trying to save money these are the pedals to get.
