These were my first clipless pedals and I've been using these on my commuter roadbike for the last 1500 miles or so. No issues whatsoever. I was nervous at first about going clipless but I have to say these pedals make it easy. They come with the tension set at the halfway point so I immediately loosened the spring to the weakest setting and have never felt the need to change it. I have never unclipped when I didn't want to but have always been able to unclip the instant I need to. None of this falling over business that everyone warns you about! These are efficient, reliable and excellent value pedals. Buy 'em, I say.

These pedals are excellent for commuting whilst retaining the characteristics of great clipless pedals. it's double sided with adjustable cleat tension. have had then for a year and no need to service yet. works great on a road/mountain bike

I've been humming and harring over getting spd pedals for a while as I've heard scare stories of people falling off their bikes whilst using them and also I just didn't know how I would get on with them. I've had toe clips for ages and have always thought they were ok.
Recently I finally took the plunge and bought these Shimano M520 SPD pedals. I just wished I had bought these years ago, they are fantastic. They have improved my cycling times dramatically and best of all they are a doddle to release from. I had a bit of a practice engaging and releasing from the pedals in my back garden whilst stationary leaning against a wall. Then I had a quick ride around the block and practiced whist on the move and doing a few emergency stops. I then did my 15 mile cyle ride to work that night and I had no problems at all. I was amazed at how much quicker my ride now was compared to using my old toe clips. As I've said before I just wished I had taken the plunge sooner.
I actually ordered these from Tweeks cycles on Ebay for just under £20 brand new and delivered, which also included the cleats. I thought this an excellent price as the cleats alone go for around £12 on Amazon and various other websites.
I also got Muddy Fox cycling shoes from Sportsdirect.com for £20 so for £40 all in I got very cheap entry into the world of SPD pedals.

I use these on my mountain and cyclo-cross bikes. They are set on the lowest tension and work well. I have provided entertainment for my mates in the forestry when I failed to release and fell sideways in slow motion into deep slime. However, that was before I got used to them. Quite simply they are better than the alternatives and very much cheaper, plus they come with the clips for your shoes.

In my opinion these are good pedals and well worth the affordable price. Pedals came with good instructions and fitting them was easy after I got old ones loose. Build quality seems good and solid. All four sides were well adjusted and I didn't have to make any additional adjustments. Clipping and unclipping work very well and I haven't have any problems.

As it states in other reviews takes a couple of hours to get used too, but it is worth it as it makes a big difference especially going up steep hills. I would definitely recommend them they are a good price and very well made, top score from me buy them !!!

A great set of pedals.
I bought them so I can use my mountain bike shoes on my road bike and these work a treat.
The SPD cleats on my shoes clipped straight in just like my other SPD pedals.
You can clip into either side of these pedals
The tension on the release is easy to adjust - if you are new to clipless pedals and want to be sure you can get your feet off them quickly then put them on the loosest setting to start with.

Note - you will need shoes that accept the SPD cleats - a set of cleats is provided with these pedals, but with the size of these pedals it would be difficult to ride without the correct shoes.
They only accept SPD cleats as far as I can tell so if your shoes dont accept SPD then don't buy.

Easy to swap the pedals over from my old rather worn resin set. Use a proper pedal spanner though which gives you just the right amount of leverage.

The only downside with these pedals is that they have no reflectors on them - UK law states that any bike riden in the dark needs pedal reflectors so using these when it isn't daylight is illegal. About time the manufacturers noted UK law - but I would say that once my feet are on these then I doubt much light would get reflected back to car drivers even if they did have reflectors on them. Much better to buy decent bike lights Smart Lunar 25 Lux Front with 1/2 Watt Rear Light Set - White, (2xAA, 2xAAA batt.inc.) and reflective clothing in my opinion - although the law says different.

This is the second set of these pedals that I have bought to fit on my road bike as well as my hybrid. Recently used these pedals for weeks ride through Wales with no problems. The tension on the spring is easy to adjust to vary the ease with which you can clip your shoes in and out. The pedals come with the cleats for your cycling shoes and this type of cleat is easy to walk on unlike the road pedal cleats. The only downside for some is that they are heavier then standard pedals but that is not an issue for me as they do appear robust.

Having just taken up cycling (road) again (6 weeks ago) after many years, I was advised by a work colleague that clipless pedals are the way forward.

At first I was very apprehensive, mainly because of my complete inexperience. But after my foot slipped out of the original pedals left pedal strap from a static start at a traffic junction, thus causing my foot to collide and completely buckle my front wheel mudguard, I decided to go to for the old traditional heavy duty flat standard pedal in an effort to build up my confidence about riding on the roads.

I ordered these in an effort to use them later in the spring, but they arrived today and I thought lets try them out. I read other reviews and adjusted the tension to the minimum setting, fitted the cleats onto my newly aquired Muddy Fox SPD shoes, then tried getting my feet in and out of the pedals by leaning against my house outside wall, after 15 mins or so, I decided to try them out proper and I have to say, they were brilliant.

No falls, no drivers of cars, trucks sounding their horns, when moving off from static starts at junctions. Always had my right shoe connected to pedal, but when moving off I found clicking my left foot into the pedal no problem. Superb Buy.
