    Purchased to replace a previous set of similar level by Shimano. These are an improvement over the set I replaced by far. Easy entry/exit. Good adjustable tension.

        These pedals are durable and reliable. I have 2 pairs. The first have taken me 28,000 miles without issue. So I bought a 2nd set for my new bike.

          Comments about Shimano M540 Mountain Pedals:

          These pedals are one of the best models ever. This is my third set of 540s, the only reason I had to buy them again is because the other two sets are on different bikes now. I beat the stuffins out of these things and they just won't quit. The only issue I ever have is when a stick or twig gets wedged into the cleat connection, but that will happen with any pedal given enough time. It's not the pedals fault, I just ride too hard sometimes. LOL

              Comments about Shimano M540 Mountain Pedals:

              Bought these for a gravel/cx bike to be used mostly on unpaved roads and gravel racing. A bit of friction developed on one of the pedal spindles after just a few uses, to the point where it wouldnt spin more than a quarter turn when spun by hand. I opened up the spindle and adjusted the nut at the end, which seemed to fix things temporarily but not for long. Anyways, long story short, returned to Nashbar and they sent me a replacement which is working perfectly, no questions asked. These are a good price and do as designed. Not the lightest pedals ever but take abuse just fine and provide a very solid platform. Price is good too!

                These are good pedals, easy to clip in and out. I use them for off-road/dirt/gravel trails, but I would assume that they would work well on a road bike too.
