      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.

            This is my first set of clipless and they are making the transition much easier than I expected. They were easy to add onto my bike and are helping out with my MTB skills as well.

                  My first pair of clipless pedals. Take some getting used to - be prepared for bumps and bruises - but well worth it for all the extra power!

                  Simple affordable pedal that works just like you want it to. No problems with this pedal in the first 200 miles. I've had other similar Shimano pedals and have been very happy with functionality and durability. Easy instal and cleats fit perfect.

                    Comments about Shimano M540 Mountain Pedals:

                    I've put these pedals on my carbon road bike, which I use for moderate weekend riding and sportives and charity rides. I adjusted the tension to make exit easier. Was surprised to find I could not use my park wrench to put these on...no bolt on the pedal shaft! I had to use an Allen wrench to install. Was not a problem, but could make removal a little complicated if I leave them on as long as I did the old pedals I replaced. Overall, very happy with the quality and would recommend to others who prefer spd pedals over the conventional road pedals.
