Would not recommend as a first clipless pedal for a road bike,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shimano Speed MTB Two Sided Mechanism Pedals (Sports)
Bought these pedals as everywhere i read the general word was that these pedals are good for a first time clipless pedal experience. I would steer clear of these Mountain Bike style ones on road bikes especially as a first experience. The main gripe I have with these is pretty much how difficult it is to get clipped in even after practicing, you have to be VERY precise every time as the engagement area is pretty small when you compare it to the regular road pedals where you can place your foot in the general area and get clipped in, theres no faffing around with trying to get the clip into the top notch to get it locked in place with the road versions, so you can keep your eyes on the road rather than the pedals. Purchased the Shimano R550 pedals which were only £10 or so more and never looked back.
