I use these on my road bike. I ride through town to get to the bike trails. These allow me to ride unclipped as I navigate through stop signs and lights and traffic. I have around 500 miles on these and they have held up fine. Easy to adjust.
I use these on my cyclocross bike so I can clip in for some serious riding or just hop on it in street shoes for a quick trip in the neighborhood. I find the SPD side to be reliable and easy to clip into and the platform side offers a solid surface to use for regular shoes. I also installed them on my trainer so I can jump on it when I have to stay indoors.
I've tried quite a few different brands and models of this style pedals, which are my favorite for commuting and touring bikes. Some of them broke within a couple years, but I've had a set of these A530's going on 6 years now on my main commuter and they're still good as new. Picked up another set for a newer bike, and quality seems just as excellent as the old ones.
Installed these on a bike to have a choice of clipping in or using regular shoes. This works great. Treads on the pedals surface do not allow shoes to slide, something I thought would be an issue, and the pedal is slightly longer and narrower than stock making it more comfortable to stand on. Overall, good design and quality. Pedals will probably outlast the bike and I have no regrets.
I bought these pedals for a bike I use around town and on trails. Great for casual riding with street shoes, and more technical clipless trail riding. They are easy to flip, and fairly lightweight. Im not sure about durability as Ive only logged a few hundred miles on this bike. Im pleased with my choice so far.
Work great on my endurance road bike. Perfect when need to unclip, yet keep pedalling, like when coming to a crazy intersection. Not too heavy. Also work great when riding the boardwalk at the shore wearing sneakers.
I put these on my daughter's bike. She typically rides clipless in the summer and platforms in the winter with studded tires on our icy roads and trails, or occasionally platforms with casual shoes. These save me a few minutes of pedal changeover a few times per year. I originally bought them for my commute bike, and I'll probably order a second set soon.
