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'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!!!
Love these pedals and the flexibility to clip in or not. I have the shoes that clip in but my daughter doesnâ€™t and with these pedals there is no need to swap out the clip less pedals for standard pedals. These are easily adjusted to set the tension: tighter, harder to unclip or looser, easier to unclip. I already had these pedals on another road bike and liked them so much I bought this set for my other road bike.
I got these on sale, but even after the sale the price was awesome (the regular price)
They work well on both sides, I use them on my commuter bike, as does my sone (we bought two sets). They clip in easily and the shoe side grabs the bottom.
I really enjoy the versatility of these pedals. I enjoy the efficiency and consistency that SPD pedals offer but, occasionally I just want to jump on and ride the park or convenience store around the block. The flat side offers you the ability to ride safely without having your cleated shoes on. As I have started to increase the distance that I ride I have also found value in the ability to unclip and pedal for a while on the flat side for comfort.
I've had several pairs of these over the years. If you use your bike in a variety of ways these pedals can be really useful. I used to ride less than 2 miles to work (now retired) or maybe to a store or a friend's place. Didn't need bike shoes to do that. But I ride recreationally 100-125 miles weekly otherwise and these were just fine for my needs. And, more than once on weekend rides I forgot my shoes going to the meet-up point. No problem.
These pedals are great because you can clip in or ride with regular shoes without having to switch out pedals. They also have a more traditional look, so I fit them on to one of my vintage bikes (the flat side has slots for toe clips and straps). Durable and inexpensive. Great pedals.
I put these on my comfort bike to replace the rubber (Trek) pedals. The grip on the non-clip side is outstanding using rubber soled athletic shoes. I tested the clips but haven't used them in earnest yet. I'll do that on some more extended bike trail rides. For in the city, not having clips is really nice. One annoyance was starting out from a stop light with the clip side on top, but I found that a half rotation of the crank (without stepping on it) brought it to the flat side. It got natural pretty quickly.
I have a electra towie I commute to work on riding about 6 miles. I was using spd dedals where I needed to bring an extra pair of shoes to wear at work until I found these two sided pedals. I use the non clip side when I use regular shoes for short rides and the clip side with bike shoes for long rides.
I just want to second what has already been said, both sides of this pedal are extremely functional (cleat or no cleat) and they are solid construction. I'm using them for the daily commute and they are a joy to ride with. Catch them on sale and you've got a double bonus.
Got these for my 'weekend' bike and great so far. Was worried that the weight of the SPD side would make it harder to get to the flat side, but no problem. A quick glance and a tap of the toe and away you go.
Solid pedals at a good price. I bought these as soon as I saw them because I already have a set for one bike and I wanted to have the same rig on my new bike. Riding shuttle or IMBA trails, you can use either paddling shoes or Mtn bike shoes with the choice of pedal side. Great option.
I put these on my hybrid bike that I use for inside training where weight doesn't matter, and for kicking around town in. Nice to be able to just jump on the bike with regular shoes when I want and yet be able to use with bike shoes as well.
