Wellgos I think are still made and are decent pedals. Do an E-Bay search for ARC pedals and you will find what is available both new and used. I like LOOK PS26 pedals and do that search fairly often and there are a lot off choices. Roger

PS I just did a LOOK ARC pedal search on EBay and there were 186 results. Roger

New? Ritchey.

Why limit yourself to new? At my local Co-op we have a bin of LOOK ARC-compatible pedals, that includes almost new items such as: Carbo Pro, PP166, 176, 186, 196, MP90, PP396, etc.

I use the best LOOK compatible pedals of all time: Dura-Ace from the early 90s. It appears that the pedal bodies were made by LOOK, with Shimano innards. I have serviced these, and bottom lines is that these feature the best bearings I've ever seen on any pedal.

In use, bombproof, except that I've seen these pedals with broken release springs. Springs are replaceable. If you buy these pedals used, make sure to check them out in person.

That's odd. With less effort than posting here the OP could have pumped the four words of the thread title thru a search engine and found many pedals available. Is the internet broken? Is this thread really about something else*?

Thank you all for your suggestions. Yes I have been looking on the internet but doing a search on the four words won't tell you what people's thoughts are on them, if they are any good in real life. Problems later with use.

Looking for honest opinions from the members of this site. They are appreciated.

What I remember from my old Look pedals is that there wasn't anything special about ARC. It was the same pedal just a different cleat.

Are ARC pedals good the answer is yes but there are many different levels of them. Most of the level difference is weight. The only problems I could see with owning them would be maybe sometime in the future you will not be able to buy the cleats. I do not see that happening for years though if ever. I have thousands of miles on them and have been using them since 1990 and they are still my first choice. I own more than 20 sets. Roger
