They're awesome - the learning curve is pretty steep as very few people actually have a round pedal stroke, i.e., they're usually mashers. Once you're adapted then they're fine, in traffic, on hills, cornering, everywhere. They make hiking and running a doddle too funnily enough. The great thing is that there's a 90 day money back guarantee on them too so you could have a virtually free trial if you returned them.
