Thats the kind I run. The ones you have seen must have had the tensioner set pretty tight, because mine are real easy to get into. Even easier than my XC pedals. I haven't spent much time in the mud, but I ride in lots of dust so I have gotten into habit of banging the side of my foot on the side of the pedal to get rid of some crap in thereScottJensen said:so would a pedal like shimano 545's be a better pedal b/c of tension adjustments? the ones ive seen (545's) seem like a ***** to get clipped into. esp when say you have mud or any kinda **** on the clips or pedal
Its not a newer model, its just a different model. The main difference being a metal cage as opposed to a resin one, and an older style clip, as opposed to a mud shedding design. The metal cage of the 545 is really nice because it doesn't get as chewed up in rocky places. Also, if you ride in really hot places (105+), the resin get very soft and pliable and the end cap will pop off and bearings and such will supposedly come outmtb_biker said:545's are the older models. The newer ones (647's) are redesigned, shed mud a lot better and they have tension adjustment which work quite nicely.
