Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pedals, Easy to Use I haven't really tested the durability yet but as for ease of installation, adjustability and entry/exit these pedals are great. I was a little nervous about trying the SPD pedals after only riding platforms my entire life, but my fears were quickly subsided after spending just about 10 minutes on the bike. My foot slide easily out of the pedal when set at the lowest setting and its almost as if I'm just turning my foot a little while I'm getting off my bike. It takes very little resistance. So far I am very pleased. Pedaling efficiency has increased a lot as well. I made it up a hill that I was having a lot of trouble on with ease.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than I expected I do a lot of XC mountain biking with a good amount of technical climbs and descents with babyheads and roots thrown in for good measure. These are the first clipless pedals I've owned and was concerned about entry/exit over the scary stuff. These pedals were the perfect choice - I rode as if I've been riding clipless from the beginning. I tuned them to the loosest setting and quickly felt at home on them. I still am adjusting to quickly re-entering the pedals on the trails, but that's mainly the shoes/foot position. Most times they click in faster than I expected. I've gotten faster and more efficient at climbing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I'm stuck! I have spd pedals on my commuter and needed to replace the eggbeaters i had on my mountain bike. I went with spds as I was used to them and wanted something adjustable (unlike eggbeaters). I'm a broke grad student so I went with what was cheap. I used these about 5 times (never in the mud or wet) before they stopped letting me unclip. I played with the adjustment and succeeded only in allowing a lot of slop but still couldn't unclip until my foot was nearly perpendicular to my frame. needless, to say I stopped riding on them lest I get myself into a situation. I'm gonna go with a higher end set of pedals. so much for saving money :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Pedals I initially bought these for MTBing and still use them for it. They're extremely durable; they may not have replaceable bearings, but I'm on the same set for the third season in a row and the bearing is still buttery smooth and tight. I've bashed them on all manner of rocks and logs and while the edges are scraped up, they still work perfectly, engage and disengage flawlessly. They're nearly impossible to break. I also use them on my road bike and commuter. The M540 is the same pedal with adjustable/replaceable bearings, but I don't think it's worth the extra price because the bearings on these are bombproof.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid pedals, match my a530's I put the m520's on a new road bike after having a530's (single sided) on my grocery-getter hybrid. m520's easier to click in, and click out EXACTLY the same way as the Shimano a530's which is what I was looking for. I didn't want to have to train my feet differently for each bike. While not strictly road pedals (listed as MTB), the consistency with the a530's was paramount. I could have gotten slightly lighter road bike pedals, but that's OK by me. I use MTB-style shoes anyway. Don't like the road shoes at all. Very happy with the pedals on each bike, and very happy with how they work "together."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happier Than a Tornado in a Trailer Park I'm hooked on these pedals (literally). They're easy to clip in and clip out of once you've made the proper adjustments. Yeah, they're a little weighty, but these pedals are durable and will take a butt whuppin'. Sure they may not be the most cutting edge or sexy set of pedals on the market, but in this case it's function over form. The price is right and see absolutely no need to shell out more money since these pedals are more than sufficient more mountain biking, commuting or just cruising around town. Do yourself a favor and cop these pedals when they're on sale for the ultimate deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome value for any kind of ride... I've installed these on my mountain, road and touring bikes. With very low profile, walkable Shimano Mtn shoes (the MO70's) I can train, hit the trails or get decent efficiency when touring. OK, I get the additional double-take from other roadies, but honestly I don't miss my low-end Looks, and that's with doing 80-100 miles a week on the road. Add the snap-in platforms Shimano supplies (most shops have a basket of these in the shop area and will let them go cheap) and you can have a bike you can flat-foot it when you need to. Release is easily replicated bike to bike, and adjustment seems to hold for a long time. I'll take three solid inexpensive pedals and one pair of decent shoes any day over three different pedals/cleats and three pairs of shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have been very dependable I've been using these for years now on my almost-daily 7 mile off-road ride and have no complaints. I have a pair on both my bikes. The only problem I've ever had is when I slam one down very hard on a rock ledge I'm trying to get over and I knock the screw and spring out of place. It has happened 3 times in something like 4 years. It only takes a few minutes to fix once you figure out that you have to disassemble it pretty far to make it easy to get the screw back in place. Other than that, they've taken all the abuse I've given them. The added control you get with clipless peddles is amazing, you'll wonder how you ever got by without them. Just make sure you get comfortable with clipping out before you do anything too technical.

Can you verify whether these come with the cleats as shown in the first picture?  Thank you!

The pedals do come with the SPD cleats shown.
