    Comments about Shimano A520 Sport/Touring Road Pedals:

    Switched from MTB SPDs to these SPD A520 Road pedals. I have recessed cleats and the new road pedals take a bit getting used to as far as clipping in. More of a learning curve on my part. Once clipped in, all is good.

          These cleats are very nice for the $. If you get hot spots or numbness in your feet these may be the solution as they tend to do a good job with applying pressure across a larger area of the foot.

              I had been using the toe clips over the pedal which were harder to use than these. I was able to get me shoe attached to the pedal right away. They are also easy to take off. My husband attached them and did all the work but he said it was easy.

                These are a great cross platform cleat. I have road bikes, mountain bikes and hybrid bikes. Using one cleat for all bikes just makes sense. im not racing but I enjoy my long rides and short commutes.

                  I`ve been using these pedals for 5 years and they are holding up great. Very durable. They needed breaking in at first, but once I had a couple thousand miles use on them they clip and unclip easy and spin easy. Good pedal.

                  Pretty Good, check bolts after each ride

                    Comments about Shimano A520 Sport/Touring Road Pedals:

                    Recently got these for road riding, and generally like them. They are supposed ot be used with recessed-sole road shoes, but I got flat-bottom shoes because shoe selection seemed fairly limited for the two-bolt cleat pattern. That might be the reason for the following issue-- not sure, but I've left a message with Shimano

                    That said, the cleats clip in very easily with pedals set for low tension. My only issue is with unclipping. My right shoe unclips easily; the left not so easily. Yesterday, I had trouble clipping in on the left side. When I stopped to take a break, I was unable to unclip the left shoe, even after unclipping and standing on my right foot. So, I had to open the Velcro shoe closures, remove my foot from the shoe (While standing on one foot-- not so easy. Then, I was just able to twist the left shoe out of the pedal. The reason? One bolt was gone from the cleat; the other was loose, as was the cleat. I was lucky enough to have the correct hex wrench to tighten the lone bolt, and finish my ride with no problem.

                    Check bolts after every ride!

                      Comments about Shimano A520 Sport/Touring Road Pedals:

                      I purchased these for a used road bike I recently purchased. The original platform pedals had to go-- and fast!

                      I like SPD pedals and cleats, as walking in the cleats is almost normal.

                      With these I purchased shoes without a recessed cleat area. In spite of that, clipping in is easy and sure. Both pedals were factory set to be REALLY tight, and difficult to use. A 3MM hex key took care of that. Now, clipping in is easy, but unclipping varies. My right shoe unclips easily. My left is tighter in the release. I have to check the tension on the left show, though I think it's adjusted to near its lightest setting.

                      All in all, I like these pedals. Even at a lighter setting, they offer great security, light weight, and very good value.

                      I ride 50-70 miles per week, though last week 111 miles, and today, with these pedals, 50.
