Shimano PD-M424 SPD Dual Platform Pedals $54.95
The M424 is a great pedal for those who are uncomfortable with the minimal design of racing pedals. A black resin body surrounds the clipless system, and the clipless portion sticks up at a 12.5-degree angle so it's easier to engage the cleat into the clip. This is also an unusual pedal for Shimano in that the "step up" M545 is heavier and more expensive than the M424. The drawback is that the resin cage isn't as durable as the alloy cage on the m545.

Being new to mountain biking - I really lay my bike down a lot. Not necessarily crashing, but just down on the trail. I also unclip often enough that I need a platform to be stable when I try and start on an incline and do not clip in immediately. Great pedals and they have worked flawlessly. I believe the cage is made of plastic for this very reason - to take a beating, assuming they will be changed out for better pedals later on. I definitely recommend them :)

This may be an amateur ? , but it says quantity 1 when you place an order. Does that mean 1 pedal, or do you get 2 with the order?
You get a pair.
Nick, Shimano makes an all metal one
You should check the all metal version. Certainly worth it - if you are a diehard Shimano fan.
Two years of usage review
Rode these pedals for two years. Like the intention of design, but the plastic gets beat up really fast. After two years of riding, the pedals looked like my dog chewed on them...and I don't have a dog.
Overall pedals functioned good, just did not care for the plastic cage around the clip.
Works good if you are not too aggressive of a rider, but otherwise I Would recommend something a little more durable than a plastic housing.
My First Time
This was my first foray into lock-in pedals. I'm glad I made the change. These pedals are easy in and out and keep you locked in when you need to be. The weight is good and the price won't kill you. Go ahead...do it.
Are all crank brothers pedals compatible...
Are all crank brothers pedals compatible with the same cleat?
Absolutely! All Crank Brothers pedals use the same cleats. Sadly for you, these pedals are SPD, not Crank Brothers.Take a look at these:http://www.backcountry.com/store/CRN0016/Crank-Brothers-Acid-1-Pedals.html?RSC_ID=WR_CRN0016
