I was thinking about those but went with One Up composites. If I had to get metallic pedals One Up's would also be my choice. Great pedals.

For a bike that will be locked up and left around town. Buy a cheap used hard tail.

For a bike that you're going to ride for enjoyment, spend as much as you can & don't let it out of your site.
