I run 6800 ultegra pedals on one bike and these on another. The ultegras are sweet, but these, for 1/2 the price here on PBK, do a great job. Nice product for sure, especially at the price. A huge upgrade over the 540s I was using before.

Although I've been running aluminium Shimano 105 pedals for years and years, when I recently needed a new pair of cleats (largely due to my neighbor building a mud puddle to keep pesky cyclists off his road) I was pleasantly surprised to find the PD-R550 pedals listed on PBK for not much more than the cost of a new pair of cleats only here in the States.
When they arrived, they seemed a little heavier than the 105s, but not too much, and the bearings were definitely not as smooth. I'm a little curious how the composite material will last, abrasion-wise, over time.
On riding, I found that I haven't yet missed a single clip-in on starting from a stop. I'm not sure if this is due to the pedals being new, the shape of the pedal, or some characteristic of the composite material, but I don't ever remember my aluminium 105s being so consistent.
Overall, I am extremely pleased with the price and performance, and since I don't race (well, in sanctioned races anyway) I'm not worried about a few extra grams. I'm quite happy with this purchase and with PBK's price.
