answer 2
I have put these pedals on my Specialized Tricross. I use the bike for road sportives, do all my road training rides on it and use it for my cycle postal delivery job. I chose these pedals for the plate which makes for easier finding of the pedals when stopping/starting a lot, and for the extra support. My co-worker has a Specialized Allez with these pedals too.

Works fine, and looks alright too (not what you'd usually find on a road bike though!) but if you are weight conscious, I would go for Shimano M520s. Essentially the same, but without the big medal cage.

Use with regular shoes

Can these pedals be used with regular shoes too occasionally like A530?

answer 1
They are dual-sided SPD pedals, so I don't think they would be very comfortable - or particularly safe - with regular shoes.

When pushing off it is okay to cycle a little way with one foot clipped out, but I don't think I want to cover any significant distance with neither foot clipped in.

answer 3
Not really in my opinion; I use M324 which have the clips on one side only and a normal pedal on the other side; never found it a problem to clip in and out without looking down; all a question of getting used to them; can't imagine riding without clicking in, and with SPD shoes you can walk around reasonably comfortably

Yes these are dual pedals, one side is clipless and the other side is flat.

answer 4
Hi,

Personally I ride a lot of Cross Country and find the M520's perfect for me. these look like they would offer a little more contact with the shoe. the acage around th pdeal looks tlike you could ride them without cleats if you just wanted to 'pop to the shops'.

Looking over the other pair I would suggest the main difference is the price. The pair we are looking at here also explicitly mentioned they are double sided which is very useful.

I reckon you could get this pair and that would be fine.

You don't say what make of shoe, but really, if a shoe is designed to take SPD cleats, then it should fit an SPD pedal, whether the shoe is MTB or otherwise. If the deep tread does present a problem, then a possible solution involving washers or spacers might suffice.
If this helps, I use three pairs of shoes with this pedal (two old, one new) and the cleat does not sit more than 1mm below the tread of any of the shoes.

These pedals are specific to mountain-biking so they are dual sided. The A530 pedals are popular with commuters and will be flat on one side then clip-less on the other making them use ful in different applications.

Yes they should. SPD means Shimano Pedal Dynamics, so all shimano SPD shoes should fit shimano SPD pedals. To check, the bottom of the sole of the shoe should have two elongated oblong holes and a metal plate inside which the metal cleats are bolted onto (cleats that match the pedals come with pedals)
