I've been thinking about upgrading my M505 pedal to M540's. The 505's seem to be a bit tricky to get out of at times. Has anyone compared these two pedals? Will I find the M540s easier to release from? (particularly in the mud)
I went from 505's which came stock on my bike to the 540's. It was like night and day. The 540's ( and 520's, 959's) have a much more open design than the 505s and will actually work in the mud. I haven't had any problems getting into them no matter how crappy the conditions.
