    Great pedals. I bought them for a second bike I just purchased. I thought they had the same clip ins as the BikeNashBar pedals - they ARE not the same.

    I'll just upgrade the first bike up to these also.

      Comments about Shimano PD-R540 SPD-SL Road Pedals:

      This is a good value pedal. On my old set up I had Look Keo Sprint's. Comparatively, this seem to be on par, maybe just a little heavier. Shimano's Dura Ace pedals only save 82 grams compared to these yet cost $114 more. I'll stick with these. Easy to install, easy to adjust tension, come with cleats. Not to mention look great with my white frame.

      I have three sets of these entry level pedals. I like the strength vs the weight. One set did click a little but I think I can adjust it.

        Comments about Shimano PD-R540 SPD-SL Road Pedals:

        Decided to get back into road riding after nearly 20 years and wanted to get more up-to-date pedals (I bought my Time pedals back in 1992). For an expensive pedal these Shimanos look good and work pretty well. Clicking in is easy, although I sometimes have difficulty getting out of them (I haven't bothered adjusting the tension, which you can do). All in all, a great entry-level road pedal.

          Comments about Shimano PD-R540 SPD-SL Road Pedals:

          Bought this for a Mekk Pinnerelo AL 1.5 I bought from Nashbar. For anything short of perhaps competitive racing, where ounces count, these are fantastic. Clip in easy, clip out easy, smooth, and adjustable. I've never accidently de-clipped with these. What else do you really need. I can't fathom why anyone who doesn't ride for money needs anything more. However, If you are the guy who has to brag about the custom carbon fiber valve caps you just got or the $6000 rims on your bike then these obviously aren't for you (actually, they might be because you are probably broke now) but then you probably aren't reading the reviews on these either.

          New at cycling and it's the first time I have used pedals like this. Very easy to clip into and out. Love them and the bonus is they match my bike well
