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?
I have fitted these pedals to my road bike and actually use an MTB shoe which means I can walk a long way with them on if necessary as they are just like trainers. It took me just minutes to get used to them after using toe clips all my life (I am over 60). Just remember to release your foot before you come to a stop.
