Shimano M520L Mountain Pedals
While the Shimano M520L Mountain Pedals may be priced for the entry-level mountain biker, their performance out on the trail will make them feel like they're worth a million bucks. Using the same mechanism for entry and release used by its rock star Shimano XT and XTR brethren, clicking in and out of these pedals is a joy to behold. Have no fear if the going gets sloppy as they work great in muddy conditions while their aluminum body and chromoly spindle are up to the task of withstanding all the punishment you can dish out while having a rip roaring good time riding in the woods.
  • Aluminum body and chromoly spindle are super tough
  • Adjustable spring tension, top and bottom
  • Sealed bearings make for smooth pedaling
  • Includes Shimano SM-SH51 cleat

    Comments about Shimano M520L Mountain Bike Pedals:

    Great product for my use. Recently purchased a recumbent bike and decided clip in pedals were a better choice than power grips straps. Work well after I reduced the tension for holding shoe onto pedal. Have transferred them to my hybrid bike and enjoy them for this ride as well. Surprised that I have resisted using this type of pedal for so long.

        I bought a pair of these Shinano pedals last year for one of my road bikes and decided to convert my trail bike to clip less pedals as well. The price is good and the return on investment is excellent. Well worth the money.

            Great entry-level clipless pedal

              Comments about Shimano M520L Mountain Bike Pedals:

              I got these as my first clipless pedals for my cyclocross bike, upgrading from simple platforms. Wish I'd tried them sooner. They aren't the lightest pedal, but I'm honestly not the lightest rider, so I'm not gonna notice a few ounces. Super easy to adjust and have a nice tactile click so you know you're locked in. Easy to exit as well. The increased efficiency is instantly noticeable, my times have dropped significantly.

                Comments about Shimano M520L Mountain Bike Pedals:

                I'm 64 years old riding a 20 year old TREK hybrid on fitness rides for 30-40 minutes 4 times/week. I bought these clipless pedals a month ago to upgrade from the "cagers" that I had used for so long. Happy to say that after falling over just once, I've become very accustomed to these pedals and have noticed a distinct increase in pedaling speed and efficiency. Everything worked as advertised and was easy to install. The low NASHBAR price was the lure, along with all the positive reviews. I might have spent the extra couple of bucks and got the Shimano M530 Trail pedals with the wider platform since I don't do any off road riding, but these work well for a newbie to clipless pedals. Glad I got them!

                  Bought this with Giro shoes to try my hand er foot at clipless pedals. I read the other reviews before buying. I don't have a lot of money but at the same time I didn't want a flimsy product I'd regret. So far I'm impressed, Ease of use. Not too bad a learning curve for newbie. Definitely increased pedaling efficiency. Nicely done Nashbar
