I have those Nashbar NS-EP2 pedals. Funny, when I purchased them I was told that Nashbar does not claim they are compatible with SPD. My experience is similiar to above, I find SPD cleats are a little difficult to clip in and a little difficult to clip out, BUT they work. I'm putting my Nashbar pair on my back-up road bike because I usually have more time to anticipate a stop on a road bike. On my mountain bikes I want Shimano SPDs with Shimano SPD cleats. Not all stops can be anticipated on the trail and I need to know that I can get out anytime, even if all I'm actually gaining is piece of mind.
EDIT: Note to TJHOO, I never tried the Nashbar cleats in the Nashbar pedals, so I can't answer your question. Now you've got me curious.
