5.0 out of 5 stars Great SPD pedals, 22 Aug. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shimano Speed MTB Two Sided Mechanism Pedals (Sports)
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.
