    How are these pedals as far as being unclipped and just riding on top of them? comfortable, girppy,etc? Thanks

    They are slippery due to the carbon. If you want something you can ride on top of get mallets. The acids are a just in case type thing. Not a half my run is this way pedal like the mallets.

    I agree get the mallets.

    Thats what I have on my bike and they work great. When I ride around town they feel fine. They are easy to clip into when you are riding with the clips. I can not ride without clips anymore. I feel like I am losing too much power without them.

    The mallets have saved my ass a couple of times when I needed to ride hard but stay out of the clips. They work great. They do not feel too akward when you need to pull out of the clips for hairy sections..

    thanks guys. Yeah i'm building up a messenger road bike so I'm looking for something a little toned down than the mallet. I have crankbros on my dh bike and love them, so the acid looked the closest to what im looking for for the road bike when not clipped in all the time. But not sure

    Another happy Mallet customer here. I actually just sent my back to Crank Bros. due to a broken bracket on the mechanism that holds the cleat to the pedal. Super good customer service. Pretty much no questions asked.

    Oh right. See, because this was posted in the DH forum, we all thought you were using them for DH.
