Shimano xt clipless - get 'em!

Just upgraded my Cannondale super v 900 with these. OMG what a difference!

I can't overstate how much better it is - and they're very easy to get in/out of. Fantastic upgrade for anyone considering.

I'll try and get the model # tonight. Dunno if they're better than time or not, but I sure like how they feel. This was an upgrade from the stock toe-clip pedals (wellgo). Ugh. What a difference!

Do you mean Wellgo pedals with toe clips, or Wellgo clipless pedals (that use cleats on the bottom of your shoes?

Still wondering what the difference between these and the 540's are. 2 grams, a nicer paint job...and a good chunk of cash? Or is there a legitimate reason that they're more expensive? The specs on the Shimano website are seriously the same, other than the almost negligible weight difference.

Not a hella diff with the 520's either. I'll just stick with the 520's, way less money.
