Great inexpensive road pedals

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.

        A good road pedal and you can get pedals and cleats for the price of new cleats alone.

          I have been using clipless pedals since they came out. From Durace down. These pedals perform great. You do drop a small amount of weight with more expensive pedals but this is nominal. for the price these pedals perform. I not only use them, I bought some for my son and he loves them.

                Upon receiving this order found out the pedals did not fit with the clips on my road shoes, paid 4.99 shipping to start with and got charged another 7.99 for returning the road pedals in new condition, never even put them on my road bike. You have totally lost my business from now on. Paying $7.99 for a return label is not my idea of the way to treat a past good customer.

                  I am using these pedals to compete in my first Triathlon. I was surprised how easy they are to clip in and out, I would definitely recommend and purchase them again!
