Superb quality pedals at an unbeatable price

"These are the 3rd pair of these clip-in peddles I have owned and I can't recommend them highly enough. The pedal build quality is excellent, hard wearing and very durable as they’ve been knocked about and used a great deal, but I have never had a single problem with them. The double-sided aspect makes it very easy to 'find' entry without needing to look down at your feet making it easy and effortless. The pedals are very easy to fit either using an Allen key or spanner and have an excellent adjustment range from super loose to super tight for unshakeable shoe retention."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, High Quality, Rugged, Adjustable
Cons: none

"Small, Stylish, Sleek.
The watch is comfortable, looks good and was exactly what I wanted. Wear it most of the time whether exercising, doing sports or just out and about. Given 4 stars because it basically does what the product description says, its cheap and functional.
All in all, very happy with this watch."

Are Shimano PD-M520 pedals ok for a road bike?

I'm completely new to the world of cycling and have bought myself a second hand bike which comes with Shimano PD-M520 pedals. Appears that these are for a mountain bike - am i ok with these on my road bike? And will the cleats fit road shoes ok - when I'm brave enough to give them a go?
Many thanks
Best answer
I have both MTB and a Road bike and use the same M520 clip-in pedals on both as felt comfortable with the way the pedals worked and didn’t want the expensive of buying another pair of shoes. Maybe not ideal if I was going to take up road cycling seriously, but for an enthusiastic amateur i'm very happy.

You can put SPDs on road bike shoes, but the combination of hard plastic or carbon sole with a metal cleat against pavement doesn't work well and walking around on pavement, you'll wear them out or mess the cleats up to a point you may or may not be able to clip in or out of the pedals. SPD cleats should be worn or used on shoes where they are recessed, MTB shoes that is what they were designed for not road. If you choose to use SPDs on your Road Bike at least use the MTB shoe and cleat combo so it recessed like many people do including myself, this is my combo. Its far easier to walk in any condition in MTB shoes.
