Speedplay Frog Cromoly Mountain Bike Pedal

Speedplay Frog G3 cleat compatibility chart.

  • Conceived with the goal of bringing mountain bike pedal performance on par with that of road pedals, the Frog is the most versatile pedal you can buy
  • Saves weight because it has a single retention mechanism in the cleat, instead of two redundant mechanisms located in the pedal like most off-road systems
  • Minimalist design does away with confusing adjustments, because engagement security doesn't depend on spring tension
  • G3 Frog cleat is stronger, more durable, easier to mount and compatible with 2-hole SPD-style road shoes
  • Quickly and easily sheds mud, because debris is pushed out when the cleat engages with the pedal
  • Tough resin composite body is highly resistant to impact damage
  • Lightning-fast release puts an end to falls caused by pedals that won't disengage
  • Phenomenally lightweight design
  • Knee-friendly, non-centering free float
  • Precision needle and cartridge bearings
  • Built-in grease port for easy bearing lubrication

    Comments about Speedplay Frog Cromoly Mountain Bike Pedal:

    I've been using speedplay frogs for many years now on both my mountain and road bike. I find the cromo a better deal than the stainless as the weight difference is not that great. Pedals last a long time. Cleats tend to wear out a little too quickly for me but I've gotten used to the full float and cant go back to SPD's now.

      Comments about Speedplay Frog Cromoly Mountain Bike Pedal:

      I started using Speedplay Frog pedals because of the float. "No float" pedals either tweaked my knees or my hips, depending on the adjustment. The Frogs brought instant relief and are now on all my bikes.

      PUT THE PEDAL TO THE METAL (so to speak)

      Pros

        Comments about Speedplay Frog Cromoly Mountain Bike Pedal:

        I've used the Frogs on my Giant composite, my Co-Motion Nor'Wester, my I.C.E. tadpole trike, and now I'm buying a set for my Tour Easy long wheel-base recumbent.
        Getting into the pedals is so slick - just slide your foot forward onto the pedal. Engagement is in a sense instantaneous. Riding with others who use different pedals you see the riders looking down at their pedals. I rarely had to do that mainly because the pedal is double sided.
        Truthfully, all the years I've used these pedals I never rebuilt them. All I do is check periodically by spinning the pedal. If it spins easily it's time to lube.
        Walk anywhere (but not on water) and nobody knows you've got cleats on your shoes.
        Great pedals.

          Speedplay frogs

          By John

          from Carolina's

          Comments about Speedplay Frog Cromoly Mountain Bike Pedal:

          For me, best pedal on the market. Easy in, easy out. They may take a few miles to get use to, but I have never looked back. I have two pair of frogs and one pair of light action and like Speedplay's concept of clipless design. I inject a little grease about every 3rd bike maintenance and that's it. At some point i'm sure they will need rebuilt, but have about 4 years on my first pair with no problems.

                Comments about Speedplay Frog Cromoly Mountain Bike Pedal:

                I have used these for several years on my road bike after trying two other styles. My shoes are MTB style and kind of heavy, but the SPD clips are recessed and I can walk in them when off the bike. I clip in/out so easily and have never fell over with these clips. Finally talked my wife into trying these for her road bike which is what this purchase is for. She had tried a couple of different clipless styles a few years back and fell over too many times and went back to toe-clip style. She is avid bicyclists and does many triathlons every year. I moved my existing pedals/clips to her bike and she tried them out. She was very nervous about falling over, but found out how easy they are to use and we ordered a set for her. Also bought her a new bike shoe that had softer outer sole so she could disengage and still put foot on pedal and not slip off (vs the had sole on her shoes that you can not keep on the tiny pedal unless clipped in). I find that pulling my foot out to side, instantly disengages. As to lube, I have a chainsaw bar-tip lubricator that works fine to fill the pedals with. Probably not quite the lube suggested, but works fine and fits the lube hole.

                  Bought these for my hybrid bike, then another pair for my road bike. They work great and are the most intuitive pedals I've used- slipping in and out of them without thought. The float is notable at first, but within an hour your brain adjusts and you don't float at all- including out-of saddle climbing or hard accelerating. Terrific pedal.

                    Been riding Frogs for a long time and bought these for my wife as a first-time clipless pedal user. As she has some knee problems, she loves the wide float in the Frogs. At first, they seem slippery, like tip-toeing on ice (due to the wide float). But once you get the hang of them, nothing compares. I won't ride anything else (nor will my wife).

                      I wanted a pedal/shoe combination that were easy to use and that the shoes could be used for walking. This pedal with the Pearl Izume X-Road Fuel Mountain Shoes fits my needs perfectly. Pedals are easy to clip in and allow float without the shoe coming out of the clip, yet they are easy to unclip.
