nice hybrid pedal for my hybrid bike

By TheM

from Los Angeles

About Me Avid Cyclist

Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

One word- versatile. I think this is a nice pedal for someone with a hybrid bike like myself, someone who does a lot of city riding as well as longer distance road riding...it's as simple as shoe choice and flipping the pedal over to the side that corresponds to your shoe. I probably wouldn't recommend these for someone with a dedicated road bike for example, but for hybrids and maybe mountain bikes, it's very practical.
The only issue I can think of is that the flat side of the pedal isn't as grippy as my old flat/platform pedals (I never noticed my feet splay out under load before, probably just need more time adjusting to it), and it feels like the clip in side makes your feet sit very slightly higher on the pedal than it does on the flat side, though I could be imagining the extent of it.
But overall, this was a nice upgrade for me.

    Descent pedals, but was expecting more

    • Road Biking

    Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

    The carbon fiber makes these pedals light. However, even with the cleat adjustments open to the max, it is hard to secure the cleats. I have a set of 105's that I have put 22,000 miles on without any difficulties.

          great pedal for the price. A little tight so I had to loosen the fitting so I could easily get unclipped.

              Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

              With or without clips these pedals are great. Sometimes I wear bike shoes, sometimes I don't. Even when I do wear bike shoes it's nice to unclip and ride the flat peddles in a high congestion area, when getting unclipped quickly might be a problem or when starting out from a dead stop. I've put them on a road bike, a touring bike, a mountain bike and a bike trails bike. It's the only way to go.

                I bought these, so that I could use bike shoes with the clips to get a better work out on my bike rides. I had to adjust them to loosen up the retention on the clips. They work fine.
