Magazine reviews for Shimano A530 SPD Single Sided Touring Pedals
Review from Cycling Plus
Shimano's M324s have always been a popular touring an commuting pedal. The new A530s work on a similar principle. The single-sided SPD offers a very broad platform - ideal for leisure shoes, which typically have more flexible soles than conventional race-shoes, while the flat side means you can also use the flat side with normal trainers for heading down to the pub, or as a back-up if your SPD's fail while on tour. There's adjustment in the spring tension of the SPD mechanism, so those new to the wonders of clipless pedals can slowly build up confidence, though I found there's a bit less float in the design - perhaps an issue for those with knee complaints. Cup and cone bearings ensure a long service life - we've been racking up touring and commuting miles on ours without any problems.
A simple, light pedal that will suit leisure riders and those new to clipless riding.

I find rotating the heel away offer less resistance though
I wish I had bought these with my TriCross instead of full SPD's. For me a brilliant pedal which allows me to use my one bike for more than one purpose.
Yes they are a good first SPD pedal but I guess it depends on what your main cycling purpose is?
Road cycling there is prob no point as you would very quickly want full SPD.
Touring, allows you a backup if your cleat breaks and you can still cycle to the pub in your flip flops in the evening.
If you are beginner and having first one, I recommend you to get multi-release cleats separately.
There are detailed instructions in the packaging for bike fitting and cleat adjustment. There are also plenty of youtube videos on pedal fitting. Each pedal is specific for the left and right side and will only screw into the correct side because the left pedal is reverse threaded (if I remember correctly, i.e the right pedal tightens clockwise but the left pedal tightens anticlockwise).
I recommend a pedal spanner for the job - you wont use it often but saves any inconvenience. The pedals need to be firmly tightened but not overtightened (you dont want to seize them on) - just need to apply a little common sense.
The installation was very easy to do.
No, you will not be able to fit a toe clip to this pedal, there aren't any screw holes to attach the clip. They're meant to be used with flat shoes on one side, and SPD-compatible shoes on the other.
I have the standard cleats that came with the pedals fitted on a pair of Keen Arroyo Pedal cycling sandals.
Sorry for this question, just want to know if they will look daft seeing I think name for part is crankarms are black and pedal is silver.
Thank you very much.
I've got a pair on my hybred and would not be with out them!
