    These pedals are not expensive or heavy. I use them on my road bike and spin bike. They are well worth the price.

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

    After a few years on SPDs, decided to go back to road pedals on my cyclocross bike and resurrect my 30year colnago fixed gear. These work as expected. Inexpensive but not cheap. Not the lightest, but then again neither am I at this stage in life. Clip in and out is easy. Even on a fixed gear. Haven't had any trouble releasing and I haven't participated in bunch sprints in over ten years so I don't think I'll have any surprise releases either.

      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.

      Great Value Pedals

        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.

          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.
