I would love to ride my Trek Madone with its Shimano 105 SPD-SL pedals full-time. Alas, my age has caught up with me...I am no longer agile enough to unclip fast enough on busy local streets. After one-too-many painful and embarrassing falls it was clearly time for a change. With the A530s I can still clip-in on long, unobstructed rides and use the platform side on stop-and-go city streets. I'm using the A530s on my Trek 7500 Hybrid as well.

I bought these pedals for my commuter, and I'm happy to have the option to ride clipless or with street shoes. That said, I wouldn't necessarily call these pedals the best of both worlds, as the platform side is barely grippy enough. Some commenters mentioned struggling to find the right side of the pedal, however I felt like this was not a problem, as my feet could feel whether I was on the right side. If you lift the foot off the upside-down pedal, the rotation of the cranks will flip the pedal for you, and when you put your foot back down, it will be right-side-up! Granted, it is another thing to think about, but you don't need to take your eyes off the road. I wouldn't tell anyone to stay away from these, but I have my eye on pedals with more grip on the platform side if I were to get this kind again.

      Bought these on recommendation from a cycling friend. They are very good quality, easy to install, and seem to be great so far (only 2 rides). I did opt to upgrade over the standard clips and purchased the multi release clips.

      Great pedals with 2 sides, one SPD side for more serious rides and one platform side for going to the store or anywhere youll be walking around. A bit heavy but not a huge issue.

        I am newer to the cycling game. Recently moved to Oregon and bought a 2016 Fuji touring bike to begin my bike camping/touring enterprises throughout the Pacific Northwest. I bought these pedals because I liked the idea of being able to clip in for long rides or wear street shoes for running errands around town. These Shimano pedals have a great design that blends perfectly with my new bike! Highly recommended for riders who like options!

            I purchased these pedals for my wife's new bike. She didn't like the last clipless pedals I purchased for her, preferring this specific pedal. She likes them because they have a wider platform and seem to make it easier for her to clip in and out. And, the tension of the spring is adjustable for specific preferences on ease or difficulty in clipping in and out.
