Product Description

It's rare to see any pedal that does more than one thing. The M324 is that rarity. One side is a typical caged platform pedal, terms so old few probably understand what they mean. The other side is a SPD pedal. While it looks like a pedal that can't make up its mind, it allows the rider to be of two minds. One is the round the corner spin to run errands, the other is the ten-miler to work. This way, you can ride in your sneakers for the short stuff and get out the MTB dogs for the longer rides.

I ride 15 miles each way to work in Chicago almost daily on a fast commuter bike. I finally broke down and bought these clip pedals after riding on regular flat pedals without cages or clips for a few years.

The good:
Being clipped in makes a BIG difference. More power, feels great.
You can get out of these really easily. I haven't fallen over or had any major scares. The tension was set right already when the pedals arrived.
The versatility of being able to ride either clipped or clipless is great. I rarely ride without being clipped in anymore, but when I need to, it's great to be able to do so comfortably.

The not so good:
A very few times, I've grounded out these pedals while riding fast around a hard corner while pedaling. They do have a little less clearance than a pure clip pedal. Not like it's a huge common problem, but it's happened a few times. Only happens when I'm really pushing hard. Now that I'm used to it, I can easily avoid. But if I was a super-serious rider, this could be a problem.

I use these on my Trek 7000, they are great for hybrids and mountain bikes. They are pretty simple to get in and out of, and are perfect if you want a set of pedals that you can flip over when you don't want to go all out with the cycling shoes (casual rides to the grocery store and what not).

I've had mine for a month, they were ready to go straight out of the box.

If you want some casual clipless pedals that will make your work-out riding a bit more effective, these are what you're looking for.

They're not as light as the cheaper pedals of this type; however, the spd attachment is top quality and doesn't break.
The outer area of the pedal is a very strong steel. The pedal's alloy core is colored exactly like the LX group, and as that is a trekking / touring group with the strongest materials and this is a trekking / touring pedal that has the same coloring and theme, then I believe that these are LX trekking pedals. As such, that means they work perfectly, all the time, and they're designed to last at least as long as a bike or two.

Worthy of note is that these are a bit easier to access the platform side, albeit the methodology isn't typical. Instead of flipping it or "scuffing" with your toe, you can just pedal "around" and set your foot right down on it when it's up. This is a bit faster than typical, so its possibly less distracting in city traffic. Also, the SPD attachment is quite strong, so if you happen to mash down with a sneaker, there won't be any damage to the pedal. This is the only "combo pedal" that I've been able to flip while going up a steep hill.

As for the weight, this might be the one SPD pedal that makes your knees feel better instead of worse. The somewhat extra weight adds a beneficial flywheel effect to the pedals which can make it easier to spin a faster cadence. That's quite good for training yourself to do well. It also matches up with the intent of the trekking / touring group in facilitating an easier, lasting, approach to a long distance ride.

First off, I am pretty rough on my MTB and I'm a big guy, so I put a lot of stress on these pedals. So far they have performed flawlessly. I get down in the mud pretty good, and was thrilled at how well the mud clears from the SBD side of the pedals. The bearings feel great and you can easily pull out of the SBD side and flip the pedals as you approach the steep descents. I purchased these pedals along with Shimano SH-MT23 Mountain Bike Shoes... and you can tell they were designed to function together!

Of course these were easy to install and all you need is an ordinary 15mm wrench. They are a little on the heavy side, but not heavy enough for me to complain. I suppose if you are knocking off each ounce of weight possible you may want to keep looking. They are incredibly strong and I keep a great footing on the flat side of the pedals while wearing sneakers during freestyle and mountain runs.

Really I can't find any reason NOT to purchase these except for the weight issue. Like others said, the weight can help with your cadence due to the flywheel effect they tend to create. I noticed some weren't happy with the fact that you have to feel around with your foot to make sure you are on the right side of the pedal while clipping in... but it isn't a big deal. You can clip in quick enough that you don't lose significant momentum or time even if you have to flip the pedal with your toe. Also, you can feel whether or not its the smooth side.. very noticeable.

EDIT 9/17/2012: After 4 months of beating these pedals up, they have proven to be indestructible! The strength of these makes the weight well worth it.

i was just getting into riding to help rehab a knee surgery and was riding for a while with just the stock pedals from my GMC Denali Road Bike (also purchased from Amazon) but was highly encouraged from some of my friends to get some clip pedals. i ride around the neighborhood (quick trips to the store, and sometimes to work - only about a 6 mile ride but on some busy streets) so i wanted to have a dual platform giving me the freedom to not have to ride clipped in.

PROS:
quality materials - solid construction, feels like it'll last forever
simple installation - simple instructions, simple installation, quality components
evenly balance - weight difference between flat versus clipped side is minimal so the pedal does NOT rotate (forcing clipped side to always be down)...makes a big difference so that you're not always flipping pedal and then clipping in - can be the difference between that awkward fall, or not being able to get off the line fast enough. HUGE BONUS compared to some other dual platform shoes.
ease of clip in/out - i had never used clip in pedals before so i have no comparison, but i was able to get the hang of it within 2 minutes. stock tension seemed to work just fine for me...to date i haven't had any falls ;)

CONS:
fairly heavy - should not be an issue as the only people i can imagine looking to cut weight on their bikes are very competetive riders who wouldn't even be considering a dual platform pedal to begin with - so not really a negative in my mind.

OVERAL VERY HAPPY WITH THE PEDALS AND LOOK FORWARD TO REHAB EACH AFTERNOON 25 MILES AT A TIME!
BEING CLIPPED IN REALLY HELPS - CHANGES RIDING FROM STRICTLY A PUSH MOTION TO A PUSH AND PULL TO REALLY WORK ALL OF YOUR LEG - REALLY CAN NOTICE THE DIFFERENCE IN LOW GEARS WHEN GOING UP A STEEP INCLINE WORKING YOUR HAMSTRING.
