Ask anyone who's put in hours and hours on the bike about pedals, and they'll likely make a single recommendation: Shimano. Shimano's pedals seem to last forever, require little to no maintenance, and cleats are easy to find when it comes time to replace them. The PD-R540 SPD-SL Pedal seen here is among Shimano's entry-level pedals, but you don't sacrifice performance -it's just a touch heavier than the Ultegra or Dura-Ace offerings.
