"bought this for my lejog trip. didn't think i'd actually need it but I did after ripping tyre wall. survived over a hundred miles until I could get a tyre. This was made even more remarkable by the fact it was a patch on the rear tyre which was supporting me and my 2 laden panniers and dry bag over this distance"

Amazing low priced SPD pedal for all round use including tough freeride and off-road use
 

Can this pedal be used with shoes with a recessed cleat - or must the cleat be exposed on the shoe?

The SPD binding is described as 'pop-up' so I assume it can be used with recessed cleats as the binding will stand proud of the cage/platform on the pedal but then pushes down into the platform if used with normal flat shoes. Is this correct?
Top 1000 Contributor
Top 1000 Contributor
Yes. For use with SPD cleats but can also be used as normal pedals with flats

If i already have a Garmin device with a HRM will that strap work with the edge 510 or are they not interchangeable?

Does Garmin 510 have a light on the speedo

Can the light remain on continuously to view the speedo information.

How much power would this consume riding throughout the night. Would I required the external battery pack to provide a enough power?
Top 1000 Contributor
Top 1000 Contributor
Yes you can set the backlight to be on constant or show up at certain time intervals. I have had the backlight on constant as well as a heart rate monitor and cadence machine running and it lasted a 120 mile cycle.
