The A530s are the perfect pedals for new SPD users as well as everyday cycling, commuting, trekking, hybrid and touring devotees.

    Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

    Love these pedals. Put them on my hybrid. Allows me to use my clips or just bop around with sneakers. Much more efficient pedaling with clips. Easy to get in and out. Adjustable tension. Have only put on about 50 miles and will wait to see if they loosen up a bit before I adjust the tension. Very secure when clipped. Has a bit of free play but no problem with that. Look good and easy install. Shimano clips are included with the pedals-a nice plus. I'm sure they'll last a long time.
    Definitely recommend these.

        Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

        have these on two different road bikes. They have a little wider platform which makes them more comfortable on long rides. If weight counts then you would probably not want these but I think they are perfect.

              This is my 2nd pair of A530 pedals. Both bikes I have them on are mostly worn with SPD shoes, but occasionally may need the "regular pedal" side for other shoes. These fit the bill

                Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

                I ride my comfort bike about 500 miles a year as secondary / family bike. When our 10yo wants to go for a ride - just go, no waiting to change keens to spd shoes. These pedals fit the bill. If I were to change one thing - it'd be to design the platform to have better grip pattern. But for the pedal price it is what it is......

                        I believe that most of us would ride more if we don't separate riding from the rest of our normal lives. I like to be able to ride in what I have on now. I don't ride like a bike racer so I don't try to look like one. I can take off to the Post Office in my flip flops, boat shoes or whatever and still snap in for my Sunday morning ride with my buddies.

                        Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

                        These pedals work great for their intended purpose, which is to allow me to use either my mountain biking shoes or my regular shoes to ride my bike. I don't need to clip in to ride a little in the neighborhood, but for going down to the YMCA to work out or for longer rides, I like being able to clip in.

                        The clipless side is easy to adjust the tension on, to clip in to, and twist out of. When I'm clipped in, it really improves my pedaling efficiency.

                        I wish that the bearings on the pedals were not adjusted quite so tight, so that the pedal would spin a little more freely. One of the things I liked about these pedals when reading various online reviews was that the pedals supposedly will auto-rotate so that the clipless side is always up, but the bearings on the ones I have are too stiff for that to happen. The bearings don't appear to be user-adjustable. I've not had them installed long, so it may wear in a bit over time and loosen up a tad.

                        All in all, though, a nice, handy pedal!
