Perfect for anyone going clipless for the first time.,
This review is from: Shimano Speed MTB Two Sided Mechanism Pedals (Sports)
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.

I have been riding for about 3/4 yrs now mainly doing downhill but I was not able to ride at all hardly last year because of different problems with my knees etc. as well as my downhill riding I have a road bike which i enjoy going out on but need to change the pedals as because i have never used clip-less pedals these will be a entirely new experience and was just wondering if i need to have the same brand shoes as the pedals or if i could go and get some different cheap brand of shoes until I have decided if i want to stay using clip-less or not thanx

Hi, you can use any shoes you like providing you have shimano SPD or compatible cleats. Shimano cleats came with my Wiggle own brand dhb M1 shoes that are still going strong after 3000 miles in all weathers. The shoes are actually mountain bike shoes so you could use for your downhill bike too. They are a good value match for these pedals as a cheap way of trying clip-less. But trust me, once you try it you won't go back. Flat pedals just feel unsafe now..

I just thought I would add a quick comment to say thanx for helping me out before with what I needed to no about these pedals. I have been out on them on my road bike today for the first time properly with a pair of muddy fox mtb shoes I got in sports world cheap. And although these are my first pair of clipless pedals they wont be my last unless these out last me :) I dont think I would be able to go back to flats on a road bike at least after riding with a pair of these.

Mr. M. Simpson says:
Good evening, I am just reading your post. I also have a pair of muddy fox but am struggling to figure out how they attach to the shimanos, feel like I am either missing something simple or they are totally the wrong shoe, could you help please?

I can try and help first thing is are they spd shoes, if so they should be relatively easy to fit. if they are not spd shoes then they will not fit, this is the video i watched to see how to fit them http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FmWa-fLZ-
Do your shoes have tis type of screws http://merlincycles-img.s3-eu-west-1.amaz
