Recommend me some good clipless pedals
Shimano M424. Basically a M520 with a nylon cage. Allows for rapid clip in and out as the cage helps you to ‘flatten’ the pedal to get the engagement angle right. If you’re not 100% clipped in it still allows you to pedal. Non-cage pedals may ‘skate’ and roll over if clipping in in a hurry. I’ve had many an over-extended knee from doing that previously with the tiny metal spds.Posted 6 years ago
At less than 30 quid they’re cheap. The nylon cage is very strong and helps protect the pedal from ground-strikes.
I use mine for all types of riding (pair on my hybrid, pair on my Mega) and back the adjuster off all the way out and three clicks in.
yup i just got some shimano 520…… you can adjust the pedal too if you finf it hard to push your foot down to clip in….mine are brand new..quite stiff so had to loosen it so i could clip in…never had ‘clip -ins’ before its all new to me …….im just wondering what to do when i come to traffic lights… cant put me ruddy feet down…lol.= is it compulsory to rest on a car wing mirror then…. 😉Posted 6 years agotonydMember
+1 for Time. I’ve used SPD and Crank Bros and much prefer Time. You will pay a little more for them but it’s worth it IMO.
Edit to add: Just checked and you can get Time Roc ATAC for £50, I’ve been using my current set for about 4 years now and they’re just showing signs of needing a service. If you prefer a platform too you can get the Time Control Z for about £50 also, I have a set of these on my commuter/pub bike.Posted 6 years agonjee20Subscriber

Errr, I’d learn to use your pedals before going near a road.
As for the OP, M520s or 540s get my vote. 424s have far worse mud shedding abilities, and IMO the cage does nothing useful, just fouls your shoe when clipping in/out.Posted 6 years agoB.A.NanaMember
I started on basic shimano, but didn’t like that I was often not absolutely certain I’d fully clipped in, especially in winter when they’re all crudded up. Switched to Time and certainly wouldn’t now go back to shimano, the engagement is a definite ‘clunk’ there’s no mistake over. The time Z freeride things are a bit rubbish tho, so I generally use flats for playing or if I’m expecting a jumpy techy ride.Posted 6 years ago
