Great for the budget minded. They are a bit heavy but I wasn't going to find something lighter for twice the price.

    Comments about Shimano R540 Road Pedals:

    I have raced the local crits with these pedals for years . Whenever I need to change my cleats , I order these pedals for the economy of getting the pedals and the cleats in one package . As i sometimes teach the sport to new cyclist , I sometimes give these pedals to new riders as an incentive to transition to clipless pedals . Never a complaint about performance or durability .

    First time clipping in....

          Comments about Shimano R540 Road Pedals:

          I've been wantin to clip into my road bike's pedals for some time. The problem is that I ride in traffic where there are stop lights and other obstacles that interrupt my work out...so I have to be ready to stop and put a foot down nearly every ride. After about 200 miles of riding, I have to say I love these peddles. Able to clip in and out easily and confidentiality. The only slight issue is clipping in on the go at a busy intersection. Can be a little daunting clipping in on the fly while trying to get out of the way of traffic...but I'm doing it. The hard plastic cleats seem to take a real beating clipping in and out, by the markings and scratches I see on them. But, these can be replaced when it's time.

          Easy to install and the cleates that came with them work well. I practied a few hundred times before I took off and my only complaint is that some times it's difficult to tell if you have them upside down or not. I'm getting more used to them.

            I have these pedals on all 3 of my road bikes. They're easy to get in and out of. I wish they were a bit lighter but no big deal. It's not worth paying more that double to save a few grams. I used time and look pedals previously, but I like these much more

                I bought these in May of 2014 the time of this review is August 2014.

                These pedals are ideal for beginners, or for someone who's not going to ride much.

                The durability for my set was less than par. The right pedal has a horrible clicking noise only after a couple of months of riding. Roughly 700 miles. So i disassembled the pedal and found that the spindle was chipped, and the chip was grinding away my bearings. I love the looks of this pedal but it did not have the quality or longevity i was looking for. But the cleats that came with these did hold up, outlasted the pedals lol.

                  Comments about Shimano R540 Road Pedals:

                  I wish I hadn't waited so long to upgrade from SPD pedals. I had thought that SPD's were easier to clip in and out of than traditional road biking clipless pedals. I could not have been more wrong! These are amazingly easy to clip in and out of, yet feel stable and dependable while clipped in. While powering up a hill out of the saddle or sprinting, there is no sensation that I might inadvertently slip out, which happened several times with the SPD clipless I had used previously.
                  The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that I know there are lighter pedals out there, but at a substantially higher cost.

                    I ordered these pedal one for the price and two for the price. I am new cycling so I wanted to try these. I like them easy in easy out. The black does well with my blue and black lemons.
