Convenience And Efficiency In One Pedal
Take advantage of the flexibility of Shimano's PD-M324 while running errands or commuting to work. On one side is a platform pedal you can use with everyday shoes. On the other side is an SPD clip-in pedal for use with SPD / 2-bolt compatible clip-in cycling shoes.
The tension settings of the SPD clip-in pedal are adjustable. That means you can customize how hard or easy it is to clip in and out of the pedal. The mechanisms are sealed and cup & cone bearings are serviceable for user-friendly durability.
- SPD binding on one side provides the security and pedaling efficiency of a clipless pedal
- Standard platform pedal on the other side allows you to bike in non-cleated shoes
- Cleat tension adjusts so the binding releases when you want it to
- Chromoly spindle with cup and cone bearings
- 2-hole SPD cleat pattern
- Includes a set of SM-SH56 cleats
- Weight: 515g pair

I was looking for pedals for my Kona Sutra, when touring most of the time I will wear my bike shoes, but there are many times, I like to wear some other shoe. This pedal fit the bill. Easy to install, smooth function and no squeaks or weird noises. I have about 400 miles on them, and they are terrific. Will probably buy another set for my older bike. Really makes it easy to just jump and go riding with my grand kids. Thanks Western!
I use flip-flop pedals on all my bikes. These are on my winterrainy day commuter bike. They are too heavy for a bike you want to go your fastest on, but they are totally solid and reliable for a utility bike. Clip inout is clean with easily adjustable tension.
I have had Shimano campus pedals on my mountain bike for years. When it was time to replace them, there was no question I would get another pair. When using road pedals on my road bike or two-sided SPDs on my single speed and commuting downtown, there are always the occasions when I need a fast start at a light and can't get clipped in quickly enough-you either slip out or fudge your way through. With the platform, you can do a couple of strokes on either side and clip in later. I tend to use this bike in lousy/snowy weather, and these pedals are perfect. (They also work great for actual mountain biking, though they do have a slightly larger profile than simple SPD pedals.)
I have had these pedals on my favorite road bike for about 8 years and bought a second pair to put on another one of my bikes. Totally comfortable for use w/ street shoes, flip flops, boots, and if absolutely necessary, barefoot (not recommended though!). High quality, long lasting. Super useful. Highly recommended.
I use these on mountains bike tours where I need to ride unclipped on my strong side so I can touch down immediately at tip-over speed on steep hills. The grip on my strong side (unclipped) is strong allowing me to inch along as required. Also, I like to use these at home when going to the gym or grocery store using my running shoes.
I ordered these as I have on more than one occassion hd folks that wanted to try out my recumbent trike but the pedals I had on it were clip on both sides. These fit the need that I had and are a quality product.
I put these on a friend's vintage Nishiki International road bike. He also has a MTB with clips. Now he can ride either with his shoes or hop on the road bike to run to the store. They are little heavy. I guess you have to trade off for versatility.
I was looking for pedals that would allow me the versatility of using platform and SPD clips and these fit the bill nicely. They're built like a tank and have exceeded my expectations.
I'd used a similar pedal from a different company on my mountain bike (for multi-purpose uses) and really enjoyed the option of being clipped or not, regular shoes or cycling shoes etc. Especially nice for "getting going" on uneven or challenging surfaces and only wanting one foot clipped in for a bit.
This was my first experience with this brand, and so far, I'm loving them. Easy to adjust the tension for clipping in/out of clips, pedals are good quality overall, and comfortable with regular and cycling shoes. One thing I really appreciate about these pedals vs. the "similar other brand" is the option to use two different types of clips (for different release angles etc) without having to make any changes. I appreciated not having to change my shoe clips from the ones used with "other brand" pedals on a different bike, and being able to switch between bikes/pedals without any issues.
The PRICE of the pedals through this store was also very much appreciated, being considerably less expensive than other sources I'd found.
For an amateur rider like myself the Shimano PD-M324 pedals give me confidence. They are still cool being clipless pedals on one side, wearing road shoes, the pedals are not large. There is also a flat side for casual rides and/or using one foot on the flat side when approaching a light or stop sign. They boost your pedaling efficiency and overall power. The Shimano PD-M324 pedals are good quality, durable and not heavy. Price wise these are a good value and introduction to clipless pedals.
I'm just a regular buy riding a 34 year old Cannondale mountain bike. I ride about 6 miles a day commuting, for which I just wear street shoes. But I also have a pair of SPD shoes that I wear when riding a different bike, and it's nice to be able to use those on this bike on weekends or whenever.
Based on a couple of hundred miles on these pedals I have no complaints. It's easy to get the right side up when you need to and they do what they need to do. I wish I'd bought them years ago.
I bought these pedals for the gravel bike I take on RV trips with my wife. Our rides together are typically around 10 miles, relatively slow and donï¿½t require a lot of climbing. So, I like to do these rides with trail shoes and use the platform side. However, I do bring bike shorts and bike shoes on these RV trips so I can clip in for more challenging rides on my own. These pedals work fine for my needs. But, I would add that clipping in isnï¿½t as easy as with my other Shimano SPD pedals. Also, the pedals arenï¿½tï¿½t weighted so that either one side or the other rests in an up position. This is a bit of a pain to deal with. Finally, these are Shimano pedals and like the 10+ sets I have for my other bikes, I expect these will be ï¿½bomb proofï¿½.
I bought theses pedals for my hybrid bike originally and I liked them so much I bought another set for my road bike. Its the best of both worlds! I can clip in for a long ride or ride with tennis shoes for a quick run. Definitely the right pedal for me!!!
