          Comments about Shimano Deore XT PD-M785 Mountain Pedals:

          One can get emotional about pedals. Anything that touches my body (handlebar, saddle, pedals) are important, especially when riding long distances, like centuries or more.

          1) The Shimano XT pedals are on my road bike. I wanted one set of shoes and cleats for all my bikes. Mtn bike shoes are necessary when getting off the bike and climbing up or down hills for those out of sight "gotta go" occasions.

          2) These have less float then my Crank Brothers, but, I'm getting used to it. The float with the Cranks on my mtn bike is excellent. I'll need to adjust the Shimanos to get that float back.

          3) I like the solid feeling and sound when I snap into them. I wasn't sure all the time with the Cranks; therefore, causing the pedals to roll and my feet to slip. In a busy intersection that was dangerous.

          4) They weigh more then the Cranks, but, I don't notice the difference after they are on the bike.

          5) Overall, these peddles work and seem solid.

            Comments about Shimano Deore XT PD-M785 Mountain Pedals:

            These pedals are great! I ride about 80 miles a week and recently replaced a cheapo pair of Look Keos with these on my road bike. Although they are noticeably heavier, the options these pedals offer are worth it. Being able to clip in on either side of the pedal is very helpful, as is being able to pedal without having to first clip in. I use the SH 56 cleats on my road shoes, and SH 51 cleats on my MTB shoes. The SH 56 cleats are supposed to allow for additional release options, but I really haven't noticed this. They are easy to get into and out of, and to adjust. I highly recommend them, but they are not for someone who is weight conscious. Shimano does make a similar pedal that weighs less but costs twice as much. For me, the price was right on these and I love them!

              Comments about Shimano Deore XT PD-M785 Mountain Pedals:

              I actually use these pedals for road. I have wide feet, and I find the extra support these provide as helpful. I love the ease of use as far as adjustments go with the spd cleats. I haven't used Shimano pedals in several years and I am pleasantly impressed. Can't go wrong with a set of these.

              As promised these new clip pedals added balance, stability and power to my stroke. I am already going up steeper hills faster than ever before. The added surface area distributes my weight and adds to the power both the push and pull! A great set of pedals. They also add about a one inch wider stance which adds to stability and better matches my ergonomics. Great job Shimano.

              What a difference

                    Comments about Shimano Deore XT PD-M785 Mountain Pedals:

                    Hi,
                    After riding regular Shimano spd mt. pedals for years, I finally purchsed these & love them.
                    I've only riding them once on a short ride, but can tell the difference.
                    These give a much broader platform, allowing more support, dipercing the weight over a larger area of your foot, (much more comfortable).
                    I even feel they help my pedal stroke become more efficient & less "dead areas" as my foot seems to stay connected to the pedal throughout the 360 degree revolution.
                    Just as easy to get in & out, don't even have to think about it.
                    I also like the large allen bolt accessed from the inside of crank arm, instead of the old "nut-style" of tightening.

                      My first clip-in pedals. I put these on my new road bike even though they are "mountain bike" pedals. They are fantastic. The extra platform is nice when you aren't clipped in. The fact you can clip in on both sides is a major plus. The clip tension can be adjusted, but I used them right out of the box, and was good to go. Very easy to install. I'm going to buy another set for my mountain bike.

                      These pedals replaced my Coda pedals because I was having problems getting my foot to release from the Codas. I found that these release better, even though I had to almost fully loosen them, but they are still finicky about releasing sometimes. I chalk that up to cockpit trouble more than the pedals fault however.

                      The wide pedal base makes it easy to launch with, and clip into. I find the wider base makes it easier on the foot and I get no pressure on the cleat area as I did in the past with traditional clip pedals. I ride with Shimano M088 shoes, which pair well with these pedals and result in a very comfortable and stable base.
