hey all, ive spent quite a while trying to find reviews on the 530''s and no luck really. i started riding on 520's and they where freaking amazing. rode them for 3-4 years in all conditions they've been with me through three bikes plus my rode bike. this year after a buddy kept suggesting them i bought a pair of time Atac's good price to try them. since i got them ive pretty much wanted to swap back to Shimano. the times gave me knee issues. so now i am finally sick of them enough to buy new pedals and i cant pick between thr 530's and the 520's .
any one done a side by side comparison? anyone gone from one to the other? and why? i wil lbe going with the 520 or 530 for both price and because well my 520's i had went through hell but always worked.

I would go with 540. 530/520 has nylon fixing bolt and that gets damaged pretty easily. 540 is totally serviceable, has almost same internal structure as XT, I would think it is best bang for the buck. My 540s are several yeas old and still going strong. Right now, 540s are cheaper than 530. Unless you need these silly cages...:)
