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.

Unanswered Question

From what I understand these pedals are what I need for my purposes. However, I do triathlons and I'm new to the sport. If I were to get these pedals can I change the cleat (if I'm asking the right thing) on the sole of the tri shoe to go with these pedals?

On these pedals, and on the A530, does the flat side or the SPD side face up when there is no foot on the pedal? Said another way, if I am riding in work shoes mostly, does the flat side come up naturally, or do I need to flip the pedal to the flat side (and away from the SPD side) at every stop sign? Thanks in advance.

The SPD side is a little heavier so it is going to naturally flip down. Most, if not all the time, you're going to get the flat side up!

On my A530, the resistance is more important than the weight (i.e., they stay in the position you left them in). So, SPD up stays SPD up - but note that rotating the pedals changes this. In other words, if flat side is up while it's at the bottom of the stroke, SPD side is up when it rotates to the top of the stroke, 100% of the time. It makes clipping in nice and easy, and if it's backwards for some reason, it's easy to correct on the fly without trying to flip it over with your toe.

good, just not as a dedicated MTB pedal

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

From a platform perspective, these pedals work really well for rides where you aren't frequently stopping (because if you are, you might drive yourself crazy flipping them back over to your preferred side.) I bought these to keep my options open in case I ever decide to cowgirl up and get clip-in MTB shoes. So far they've been pretty finicky out on the trails, since the clipless side likes to flip up whenever my foot leaves the platform, resulting in a very slippery surface for climbs and sketchy sections/descents. On the other hand, they're great for my commute to work on a super mellow/wide trail. Decent pedals - just wouldn't recommend them for use as a dedicated MTB platform pedal.

Great for options

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I really appreciated these pedals as I learned to ride clipped in on a longer trip. When I needed to focus on dense city traffic the first couple of days, it was nice to have the option. I'm keeping them on my bike for city riding options.

lookin' good

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I haven't taken them out on the road yet, but they look great and seem like they will give good grip on the platform size. I will update once I've taken them out on the road.

Great versatility

    I have been riding these pedals for nearly a year and am really happy with the choice. I ride to and from work 10k everyday and really wanted to be able to ride into work with clips, but once at work I like doing quick errands and getting lunch on the bike. This way I don't have to wear my shoes around the mall or to a restuarant. And in 1 year using them I've had no problems.

    Where can I get the metal cages and straps...

    Where can I get the metal cages and straps for the platform side of the pedal?

    Local bike shops would have these. That being said, I don't know if the straps will interfere with the spd side of the pedal. These are probably not the best pedals to use with that system.

    Good pedals

      Picked these up for my girlfriend as her first set of step in pedals and she loves them. She really likes that she can use her bike shoes on one side when she is out for a long ride, or roll the pedals over and ride in flip flops if she is going to meet with friends

      I am trying to decide between the Shimano...

      I am trying to decide between the Shimano PD-M324 and the Shimano PD-A530. Which is a better option?
      I have what they call a performance hybrid or flat bar road bike. I ride for fitness and in training for sprint triathlons. I usually use my mountain bike shoes (hate road bike shoes). Training rides are 10-20 miles and hope to get up to 30 this year. Sometimes I ride with my kids as well on shorter rides. I use sneakers with my kids but on training rides only when I forget my bike shoes.

      Which is a better option, Shimano PD-M324 or the Shimano PD-A530?

      Hey Lovey,
      Looks like your looking at the right options for your needs. It seems to me that the two pedals are pretty similar, this one (the m324) looks to be a little more geared towards off road use and might have a slightly grippier platform for the casual shoe side. The other option (the a530) seems like it has a slightly sleeker design and looks more geared to the casual, around town on the road rider. I would opt for the slightly larger platform of the A 530 for use with sneakers and it looks like Realcyclist has a nice deal on it right now too, so that may be the way to go!

      I'd agre- go with the a530 if you are doing rides that long. Its a great pedal.

      Do i need to get a "spd compatible shoe" for these pedals? What type of shoe will work with these pedals...the clip in side.

      Yes they will fit any Standard Crank Road or Mtn

      Sweet Pedals

        Got this for my first road bike (just got done putting the first 100 on the odometer) and these are great for long rides and awesome for running around town. The adjustable tension is nice... I have yet to fall all the way over. The platform side is pretty grippy too.

        Awesome Peddles!

          I bought these peddles from a local REI store (and paid way more than i would have if I bought them here) That being said. I think they are great. I was just starting to get into cycling. I ride my back for fitness, as well as around town to the bars. I love having both options, and I probably ride around more because of it. Until i have a <15lb road bike and need to save every last gram, I will continue to use these peddles on all my bikes.
