    Anyone using Ritchey WCS V4 pedals?

    There isn't much around about these pedals but they seem really light for a SPD style pedal. I'm wondering how they perform and if they are durable.

    Dunno about those specifically, but Wellgo has been making Ritchey pedals forever..

    I've been using the Wellgo Mg-18 tis for about four years with very good luck. I weigh 165 and have them on my 5.7 travel bike.

    Best thing, only about $45 at Greenfish.

    Like any other SPD, rock bashes can break the retention clips, but they' re easy to replace from the spare parts pile.

    Since these pedals are $250 I wanted to see if they are really that good.

    They look really quite pimpy, but pedals get beat up so quickly..

    I'm guessing they work as well as any other SPD clone -- solid and predictible in the dry, finicky to nearly useless in mud

    You're talking about the original SPD design. The newer designs, with space between the spindle and the retention mechanism, work quite well in mud.

    I've been using Ritchey V3 Pros (I think the older model of the V4) for 3 years. Its a great pedal. It seems to clear mud well, and has a predictable release. I have bashed them many times on rocks and haven't bent anything.

    Overall a solid pedal.
