The Shimano PD-R540 uses the same SPD-SL cleats and retention system as the more costly Dura Ace and Ultegra level pedals, but it cuts costs by using a body shape that the others once used, but have since moved away from. And while it may lack in the extraordinary sleekness of Dura Ace and Ultegra, it offers the same stable, wide cleat platform, low stack height, and great cornering clearance SPD SL pedals are known for. And it does so at a nice price.
It uses a chromoly steel-spindle, aluminum pedal body, and composite cleat retention bar. The spring tension is adjustable via a 2.5mm hex bolt in the top of the retention mechanism and the settings are visible through a small window on the back so you can make sure that each pedal is adjusted to match. Each pedal runs on two sets of ball bearings. There's a plastic plate atop the pedal so any cleat rub will wear the plate without damaging the rest of the body. The pedal comes with the SM-SH11 floating cleat (the one with the yellow wear tabs). It is designed for three degrees of float from center, in both directions. Stack height is 14.3mm
The Shimano PD-R540 Pedals come with a pair of cleats and mounting hardware for standard three-hole applications.
All Terrain Cycles are now offering a Home Delivery service.
Our Cytech qualified mechanics will first make sure that your bike is fully checked and ready to ride.
Then we will deliver it completely assembled direct to your home or place of work where we will set up your bike for your personal needs and answer any questions you may have. All for just £50.00.
Our delivery map indicates a general area, however, if you do not see your location on the map please call us on 01274 588488 to discuss a special delivery.
After the first few weeks of use, the whole bike will settle down. As a result, the gears may need tweaking, some nuts and bolts may need tightening and you may well need to check the adjustment of the saddle and handlebars.
One of our Cytech qualified mechanics will hand build your bike leaving only a few minor adjustments for you to do once your new bike arrives. Our mechanic will also complete a rigorous Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) before carefully re-packing for shipping to you; but in order to fit the bike back into its box for delivery, some disassembly has to be done. Re-assembly of these parts should be straightforward and should not take very long.
