Bike Upgrade: Shimano PD-M324 Pedals

May 16, 2009 Mountain Biking No Comments

not the best way to transport a mountain bike:

 

.. in order to fit in my car, i had to remove both tires and seat
….thank gawd for quick-release.

… and so it begins…. upgrading bike components…

not yet 1 day in my possession, i performed the first modification… to the pedals.

though my bike (2009 Cannondale F5) came with decent alloy platform pedals in matte black by Wellgo (model LU-C25) that matched the color of the frame, i knew i would not be content with them…primarily because they were standard, platform pedals with no clipless option.

To remedy, I picked up Shimano’s PD-M324 pedals that not only have the clipless option, but also supports a regular platform pedal for those times I want to wear regular shoes.

Tools required: 5/8″ wrench + long ass metal tube for leverage.

The pedals came with a pair of compatible SM-SH56 (multi-release) cleats that allow the shoe to disengage the pedal by rolling or twisting the foot in any direction which is all good. One of my fears is falling over while still clipped in and stuck to the bike (ouch!).

 Anyways, here is a stock photo of Shimano PD-M324:
