Wellgo LU-964 with Clip & Strap Pedals
The Wellgo LU-964 pedals with clip and strap are perfect for any bike that doesn't want or need fancier clipless pedals. Large toe clip is the right size for today's thicker profile mountain bike and touring shoes. The Wellgo LU-964 features a nylon toe clip, woven nylon strap with upgraded buckle, and cro-mo axle.
I bought these pedals for my touring bike. Now I can tour with just one pair of shoes. My first impression of these pedals was not good, because the bearings are very rough and gritty out of the package. After 20 miles of riding they are now silky smooth. I would suggest going on You Tube to view how to thread the straps because there are no instructions. They work great and I am still in my learning curve on how to live with straps instead of cleats. They are a nice pair of pedals, but they do not appear to be serviceable. Very good for the money though.
I bought these clips and today was the first time I rode with them. I soon discovered that I am not coordinated enough to take advantage of their push pull benefit. My bike is a mountain bike (Mongoose). I only ride in the city and cannot get my foot out fast enough to keep my balance at a stop. My GF has the pedals that lock into the shoes. She has the same problem with the stopping part. I can say that if you only ride in the city or a park, you don't need clips. But I am sure that if you to try clips for the first time these will do the trick. The one star rating is only my experience.
Bought these to replace pedals that locked up because they couldn't be greased. These have pop out covers at the end of the axle, so you can stuff them with grease if they start to get stiff. When I got these the right pedal was a bit too tight, but I figured a little riding would loosen it up. Sure enough after a 100 miles or so, it spins freely like the left one. No issues at all with these pedals, can't beat them for the price. The cages and straps are a bonus. And they are Wellgo. I've had good luck with Wellgos over the years. Now I have these same pedals on both my mountain and road bike.
I have been using these pedals for quite some time now and I cannot find anything bad to say about them. If you are running plastic pedals, you owe it to yourself to give these pedals a try. They are a great low cost upgrade. The toeclips are also great for more efficient pedaling. These pedals are worthy of your cash.
