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

      I ride about 100 miles a week. When my look cleats needed to be replaced I decided to switch over to the shimano pedals to match the rest of my components. I love it. A lot easier to clip in and out of than my old looks. Just as secure as the look pedals when sprinting and climbing.

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

        Why pay more for a pedal, these things do all a pedal needs to do. The weight is similar to much more expensive pedals, and the white looks sweet on my white road bike. I've been riding hard for 20 years and I just can't see any reason to go with anything else. I have them on 3 of my bikes now and need another pair of cleats for a new pair of shoes, the price for this pedal is the same as the cleats alone. Guess I'll be buying 1 more pair.

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

          I am new to road biking, I was a pretty avid Mountain Biker years ago. My wife and I just started getting ready for our first Tri and I wanted to use clipless. These pedals fit the bill. Easy to install and they do everything I could ask. The clip-in is solid but I find it pretty easy to get out when I need to. I guess if a few grams could make a difference in my times, I could spend a bunch more money but these are great.
          If you are looking for a reasonable price on a good solid pedal, these should be your pedals.

            This is my first set of "road pedals" so it took a minute to get used to clipping in. Stepping out is simple, I haven't adjusted tension yet,and don't think I'll need to any time soon.

            isometimes have to look at the pedal when clipping in, but for the most part, I don't have any trouble.

                  I purchased these pedals for my new Giro road shoes. I have used spd's for two years and I wanted a new set up this year. Well made and solid. Give me a nice range of movement based on my foot position and riding style. The price doesn't flucuate much but I feel like they are a good deal for the price.

                    I've upgraded from an spd style clip-in to these along with a nice set of Giro shoes. Very satisfied with pedals, easy to clip in and out. Great looking color contrast with my Tommiso road bike. Sturdy, light weight and simple to use.

                            Great value in pedals. Not the lightest pedal in the world but works just as well as those that cost 2x and 3x more.
