Suggest me some pedals please

by bechdan   June 9, 2014  

For the past 7 years Ive had a pair of Shimano R540 pedals on my road bike, ive serviced them a few times but the bearings have now worn and I need some replacements.

Question is do I buy some more of the same or is there something better I could consider.
Ideally I dont want to spend more than about £40

I went from 540 to 550. Much nicer pedal and steel plate so not constantly replacing the plastic body cover. Easier to clip into as well. Can pick 'em up on ebay for £20 -£25 at the mo.

I have two pairs of time iclic pedals, I wouldn't buy them again, they both need servicing and you can't service them....

Never had an issue with the Looks (at varying prices) across my bikes.
A mate got some of the Exustar that run Keo cleats and they look pretty decent, comparable to my 'middle' of my 3 sets, only around half the price I think.

Can't buy the cleats on their own for much less than that! Smile
