Opinions on Wellgo R096B vs Look Keo pedals?

the tl;dr version: Does anyone have any experience / opinions about the Wellgo RB096B pedals versus Look Keo pedals? They use the same cleat design and they're much less expensive than the alternatives.

I need to add some spacers between my cranks and pedals, but two bike shops have recommended against doing so w/ the Look Keo pedals I currently have because it'll be hard to tighten the pedals up after the knee saver spacers are installed despite the fact that Knee Saver's just suggests using some Loc-tite to hold the pedals in place. Anyway, both bike shops have recommended getting pedals that can be tightened using a wrench instead of requiring a hex tool, that way they can be firmly attached to the spacers before putting the spacers into the cranks. It was suggested that I could either go with Speed Play pedals or lower end Shimano pedals (i.e 105s) because they can be tightened using a wrench. Unfortunately, I don't really want to spend $100 per pair of pedals- times two bikes - to replace them. Instead, I am debating buying a pair of Wellgo RB096B which are compatible w/ Look Keo cleats, and about half the price. I was hoping that someone here will have experience with these Wellgo pedals and can share some insights about them with me.

Thanks,
Brad

then dont .. Welgo will cost less , they're not made in France.

get more welgo cleats , you trash them walking on them or the Look .

take your Race shoes off when off the Bike.
