    Comments about Shimano R540 Road Pedals:

    I would consider myself an avid cyclist, but I've only been doing it for a couple of years. These were my first clipless pedals and they are very easy to use. For the price, you can't beat them. Easy to clip in and out of and easy to install.

      Been using these for a few years now. I guess a bit heavy for the purist but functionally excellent. I cant believe how they can sell these things for a few dollars more than the cleats

        Great for the budget minded. They are a bit heavy but I wasn't going to find something lighter for twice the price.

          I have raced the local crits with these pedals for years . Whenever I need to change my cleats , I order these pedals for the economy of getting the pedals and the cleats in one package . As i sometimes teach the sport to new cyclist , I sometimes give these pedals to new riders as an incentive to transition to clipless pedals . Never a complaint about performance or durability .

          First time clipping in....

                Comments about Shimano R540 Road Pedals:

                I've been wantin to clip into my road bike's pedals for some time. The problem is that I ride in traffic where there are stop lights and other obstacles that interrupt my work out...so I have to be ready to stop and put a foot down nearly every ride. After about 200 miles of riding, I have to say I love these peddles. Able to clip in and out easily and confidentiality. The only slight issue is clipping in on the go at a busy intersection. Can be a little daunting clipping in on the fly while trying to get out of the way of traffic...but I'm doing it. The hard plastic cleats seem to take a real beating clipping in and out, by the markings and scratches I see on them. But, these can be replaced when it's time.

                Easy to install and the cleates that came with them work well. I practied a few hundred times before I took off and my only complaint is that some times it's difficult to tell if you have them upside down or not. I'm getting more used to them.

                  I have these pedals on all 3 of my road bikes. They're easy to get in and out of. I wish they were a bit lighter but no big deal. It's not worth paying more that double to save a few grams. I used time and look pedals previously, but I like these much more
