Loose pin

      Comments about Shimano PD-R550 Road Pedals:

      Pedals work great, easy to use and comfortable, with one big problem. In the past 9 months, the pin that holds the spring-loaded rear part of the pedal has backed out on two different pedals. First time the main body of the pedal actually broke. Nashbar replaced the pedals, but now the pin is backing out on one of the replacement pedals. I was able to ride home, very carefully as I was not clipped in, and pushed the pin back in at home with the right tools. Very disappointed in the durablility of this pedal.

      Road pedal vs MTB

        I am an old school cyclist and many years ago I had made the switch to MTB pedals for my MTB/hybrid bike and tried to use the same type for my road bikes as well. I thought they were as good as it gets, however, I was wrong. Finally I switched to proper road pedals and what a difference. Now I can pull as much as I push with confidence. This particular pedals seem to be great values as I cannot mention any weaknesses for the time being.

          Comments about Shimano PD-R550 Road Pedals:

          These are the best pedals I've ever had, but I've only had a pair of Nashbar brand pedals to compare them to. I've put 50 miles or so on them so far.

          The main body material is plastic. I'm not sure how well they will handle a crash. It doesn't seem weak, but it is plastic.

          I am very satisfied with these pedals so far. My cleats clip in with a very audible click. The pedals hold the cleat well. There is a fair amount of side to side play (that is, I can rotate my heal a bit), but this is appreciated.

          I would definitely buy again.

          I grew up Mtn. biking and used Speedplay frog clipless peddles with lots of rotation before unclipping, so that was important. These offer enough play for a road peddle to keep my knees and ankles happy!

            Comments about Shimano PD-R550 Road Pedals:

            This pedal definitely performs it's intended purpose. However when you clip out the pedal rests in such a way that it's more upside down than right side up and requires you to use the toe of your shoe to line it up in order to clip in. It seems they could have done a much better job balancing the pedals for easy clip in.

                      Been riding with these pedals for two season. Bought several extra pairs for my daughter and my second road bike. These pedals and cleats are well made and easy on the knees because they allow some lateral movement. Older Look pedals were bothering my knees. Connection to the pedal is strong and they are easy to snap in and out of! Great price also!

                        My road bike experience is so much easier now. Being somewhat new to riding, i wasnt aware that pedal and shoes made that much of a difference in my riding experience. So worth the upgrade.
