Like Alan's review, my pedals were assembled the wrong way round meaning the clear operation is back to front. Easily disassembled and fixed though. Dual function is why I bought this. 3* for the hassle factor fixing poor manufacturing process control.
Light weight easy to use
Pedals were assembled the wrong way round.
The Semi Automatic Pedals 500 that I ordered are manufactured in such a way that the SPD cleat needs to be fitted to the shoe in the reverse direction to be compatible with the pedal. Installing the cleat in the wrong direction means it is impossible to get the shoe to clip in as you need to put the heel side in first rather than the toe which is the correct way to clip in.
Cleats need to be installed in reverse direction
Thank you for reviewing the Dual Function Pedals and I apologies that the pedals haven't been built up correctly. Very odd, not something I have heard before. I'd suggest you return them to your local store for a refund/exchange.

Work great with Shimano mountain bike shoes but with the flip side you can jump on your bike in trainers and have just as good a grip. Very similar to the Shimano version but cheaper and just as good.
Easy to clip in and out
I wasn't aware that I'd be so pleased with these pedals! Just great, as they allow me to go faster!!
Pratical, good size, lightweight
Really pleased with these. I replaced the horrible pedals that came on my Rockrider. First time using clips so got these as they are dual use (no changing footwear if I just need to nip to the shops) I've never used clips before and these are a brilliant starter. I've quickly got used to the clips and the only time I struggle is getting them the right way up in the dark. The adjustment screw for the strength of the clip is unfortunately under the reflectors and they are difficult to remove and replace to change the tension if you want to stay road legal. Instructions in the use of the adjustment and the additional pins would have been helpful.
Easy fitting, Dual Purpose
My first set of clipless pedals, fitted in Brahead store by Rui. Easy to adjust tension at home & getting used to clipping in & out. Very useful other surface for cleatless shoes if need be. Significant increases in power & ease of pedalling - delighted.
great to be able to use cleats for longer training rides or without for nipping to the shops etc. pedals are really easy to fit. the spring for the cleat has fairly good range of tension so will allow newbies to get used to being clipped in and tighten it up as you get more confident. great buy at a great price.

Be very careful with the adjustment screw it doesn
Good value for money and a great pedal if you are uncertain about using clipless pedals. Great for the learner

I haven't used these pedals with the cycling shoe SPD fitting yet. I've fitted some toe clips and use the other side of the pedal. So far I'm very impressed with the quality & the price.
Very smooth running bearings & build quality looks
