      Love the SPD design. The large contact pad feels much more comfortable than some of the smaller cleats available.

        Comments about Shimano R540 Road Pedals:

        These pedals come with very nice cleats. I have used the pedals only with my turbo trainer as it is winter. They clip in and out VERY smoothly and hold clipped in very well. I am very eager to go for a good ride.

          Comments about Shimano R540 Road Pedals:

          These pedals are great for the price. I've had two pairs of them. They are great for newbies getting into cycling as well as seasoned riders. I know a lot of riders will say that they are heavy but that doesn't really concern me. They are durable and are well made. They just work! You can adjust the tension to allow easy clip on/off as needed. Won't find a better set of pedals for the price.

                There is no better pedal at this price point . I have raced successfully with these pedals for years and find that i replace them for cosmetic reasons ( scuff marks ) rather than because they wear out .

                  Comments about Shimano R540 Road Pedals:

                  Chose the cheapest options here. Not worried about shaving minor bits of weight on the bike when there is plenty to shave on the body!

                  Pedals were easy to install in seconds and the included cleats were easy to position on my shoes. As a larger rider at 6'3 230lbs I have had no problems with these and they seem very sturdy. Easy to tighten or loosen the float with an allen wrench and a system of clicks to match the feel on both sides.

                        The value for these pedals that include a set of cleats is amazing! I bought these to take along when I travel and rent a bike so now I have my own set of pedals just for that rather than bothering with taking them off of one of my bikes at home. Great price!

                          I ride approximately 20-25 miles per day at an average speed of 18 mph. I have been using these pedals for a little more than two weeks and have no complaints...good purchase.
