Being honest, if you're in this market, I'd probably plonk for the M505s above for less money. Reasons: 1. You can't really ride caged SPDs with normal shoes - the pedals have to protrude because the cleats are recessed on the shoe, so they're very uncomfortable indeed to ride for any distance. If you want this option, look for double-sided pedals (A530 are nice) 2. Once clipped in, the plastic cage gives no support to the shoe, so might as well not be there 3. Clipping in rapidly becomes second nature - you should be able to stomp straight in without a second thought, so having the plastic to aim for doesn't really add anything 4. If you're riding in rutted terrain, those big pedals become a real nuisance. If you want a bigger target to aim for, look at the M530s which have a slightly bigger metal cage (but still smaller than these), otherwise stick with the M505s. Regarding legality for road use, virtually no serious road or mountain bike rider will have reflectors on their pedals as none of the clipless pedals support it. It's an outdated rule that has no basis in reality.

stuartc

I have got these click'r ones but I don't think i would want to do too much gravel/mountain biking on them. They only have one spring on them as opposed to two on a normal clipless pedal so they don't hold you in as tight. I have unclipped a few times accidently with them. They are an amazing commuter pedal though which is what I use them for. Effortless to get in and out of and like others have said a nice platform for if you don't get clipped in straight away when getting off the lights.

whatyadoinsucka

Yeah it’s a silly old rule that one, my boots have reflective trim on the heal cup and bikes and clothing are made to be seen these days

ArthurDent1

Those ones are actually road legal, unlike almost every bike I've ever owned.

Muig1972

Had these on my MTB- I liked the versatility of being able to use them with either ordinary shoes or SPD shoes. Problem is, the plastic cage snapped (I think I bashed a rock or something) - I replaced it, and the new one snapped off again pretty quickly. Might be better looking for similar pedals with a metal cage if your style of riding requires something more durable.

You are guessing with little evidence as to where this frame is made. A loose link to Dunlop having used in the past and then quoting some partnership with other firms. You are correct in that Fuji-ta have partnerships with a number of brands. However, outsourcing, that these firms are using are not exclusive contracts. Lets take the Cannondale example. Yes Fuji-ta have a partnership (lower tier stuff), Cannondale (Dorel Industries) also have 3 of their own factories as well as and R&D facility in that region. Yet, as with the name of outsourcing in looking the best deal whilst not having all your eggs in one basket you can see Cannondale also partnering with others e.g. topkey that do top end carbon frames and also quote Specialized on their page (not quite your "Merida except possibly entry level stuff"). This is of course is all business as usual. Highly debateable if Fuji-ta is the most successful - another measure of success rather than most revenues and highest number is profit, something Fuji-ta do not seem keen to announce or claim they are number one at. To put another way they are a stack them high sell them cheap and there is nothing wrong with that. The other firm doing that is Hero - that same firm that owns Avocet and that Parkers of Bolton albeit you also tried to state these were Fuji-ta products. As you put it "but I know Avocet bikes are wholly imported often fuji-ta frame based" here Albeit China's exports to Europe have grown during this time frame and investigations into Cambodia introduced more stringent rules for those to be considered adding no value closing one major factory in the process, and all new suppliers to have to prove value added to get the tax exemptions. The other part to note is Cambodia is also the point of long term investment from Taiwan (previous number one supplier to Europe). They have capacity for 20 million. They produced 12 million consistently for 5 years and bumped up to 20 million with the OFO (bike sharing) deal. Even prior to the bump for bike sharing the vast majority of their product is aimed at Asia and as you state see big sections in Africa and America prior to Europe. It is limited - they are more viewed for their skills in metallurgy in the budget arena than carbon.

Biker25

Tiagra + carbon frame = good deal.All the bike snobs need is a tin of spray paint to cover the Muddy Fox decal.

bonzobanana

Giant are the best in my opinion but don't do much oem work now for carbon frames they have been priced out of that market mainly. Specialized are jointly owned by Merida so those tend to have most of their frames made by Merida except possibly entry level stuff. Muddyfox carbon frames appear to be open mould designs from fuji-ta in mainland China the same factory that makes many carbon frames for other big brands including Cannondale, Raleigh, Scott, Bianchi and 100s of other brands (basically there are quite a few large importing companies that have taken over many famous bike brands and pretty much just import bikes from the far east with fuji-ta being the biggest most successful supplier nowadays). Sometimes they make the complete bike and sometimes they just make the certified frames which are then sent to countries like Cambodia, Bangladesh etc so they can be assembled into complete bikes and exported to Europe without getting additional anti-dumping duty. Anyway there are videos of the fuji-ta factory and its pretty advanced, they produce 20 million complete bikes a year plus a large frame business that provides frames to cheaper assembly plants across Asia plus assembly plants in Europe and the US. I think there is something like 140 million bikes a year made in the world and a huge chunk of that is low cost steel bikes for Africa, far east, south america. Fuji-ta have a significant chunk of world bike production with a very high percentage of aluminium frames. Unsure of their significance with regard carbon frames. This video was made when sports direct owned the dunlop brand used for bikes, sadly Muddyfox isn't worth mentioning but many Dunlop bikes migrated to the Muddyfox brand. Universal/Sports Direct only use fuji-ta for their mid level to high end bikes their low end steel bikes would be using the very cheapest factories same as Apollo at Halfords, Challenge bikes at Argos etc.

The brakes on this Giant bike and many other more basic Giant road disc bikes are not full hydraulic, they are their own brand proprietary "hybrid" disc brakes called Conduct which change from cables to hydraulics under an enlarged stem.

fergee

It is generally accepted that the spd sl pedal benefits from less energy wastage from movement, twisting and vertical. The shoes are generally lighter and stiffer. With regard to bike cost, I always tell people to buy the most expensive well specced bike they can afford. If you don’t and you actually enjoy cycling you will be changing very quickly. Carbon frames are stiffer, lighter, and faster. Ultegra gearing has less friction, cleaner changes, and more precise. Expensive wheels are more aerodynamic, weigh less, and are stiffer and faster. Better brakes stop quicker. For those who think there is little difference between a £600 bike and a £5000 bike have obviously never ridden one. Even the difference in a £2k bike compared to a £600 bike is night and day.

doe

From my experience I find that on longer rides, my toes and feet start cramping. The positions of the cleats and width of the pedal surface is to blame. Once the cramp sets in it will be slower. Was on the Shimano M520 then switch to the wider M530 over 4 years. Same problem. Don’t have the issue on my spd sl.

dan1979

Carbon is stiffer and gives a smoother ride, it's not just about weight.

dan1979

Assuming same shoe sole construction and weight how is it faster exactly?

daern

Sure, but as an alternative view, I bought my winter road bike used for £600 and it weight just over 7kg, so I would equally question why anyone would spent so much on a new bike. Of course, the answer is easy - it's because we all have different priorities in life and value things differently. Some would want a nice, shiny new bike that never needs to be touched, while others sill spend (quite literally) hours in the workshop tinkering and repairing them. I'm one of the "club riders doing 200 miles a week at 19mph" mentioned above and I really value my cycle kit. I've got a good idea on where to spend the money and where not to and I definitely appreciate the difference between a £500 bike and a £5000 one! Not everyone will feel this way, but that's ok - I don't like golf, football or any one of a hundred other things that people enjoy doing. I like cycling and am happy to spend money on it!

bonzobanana

I think that's rare though but it depends on how good a deal you get for the components. I think if you bought this bike upgraded to the components of the VR and then sold the spare bits you would have a far more expensive bike and lost your warranty but I haven't done the maths but it certainly looks that way. Components are often sold at a far higher markup than complete bikes and are offered to bike manufacturers at hugely discounted prices compared to retail versions. Individual frame prices are a rip off. Most aluminium frames are made in China and have a factory door price of sub $20 and only 2-3x that for carbon. As ever though its about what the market will bear not what something costs to manufacture.

whatyadoinsucka

haha, buying a bike is a more casual experience than buying a car.. cars come with basic kit same as bikes, a ford popular is not the same as a ford XR2I it doesnt always ring true you need to price in the upgrades, my bike cost me £2,500 less to build myself to my own spec, than to buy off the shelf as you say.. although i bought another bike earlier this year, sold all the bits and ended up with the frame, stem and wheels for £550, when the frame was £600+ to buy and on backorder

bonzobanana

I don't think it does Chain Reaction any credit to give such similar names to bikes as can be seen here it can be confusing to customers and end up thinking you are getting a better bike at a bargain price. It's the same naming style as cars but a bike is a much more casual purchase than a car and the buyer is much more likely to order the wrong product. Getting decent components on a bike as standard is much, much cheaper than buying a cheaper model and upgrading normally. I've seen many forum postings where people have a bought a bike for lets say £500 and then spent £1200 on upgrades over the first year (wheels, new suspension etc) but a bike with the same upgraded components would have cost £1000 new and may even had a few other upgrades like an improved frame. Much better to save until you can afford the right bike or even use credit and pay the interest. Not only that, upgrading often destroys the warranty anyway.

StanLaurel

No worries Wilson. Have you checked the pads for signs of wear? It might be that if the brakes haven't been used very much then they need to be used some more so that the pads can bed in properly. Find some hills /gradients and start to put them to use (check that the brakes actually work before you go flying down a hill.....) If the pads are resin ones then changing the pads to sintered ones if you still aren't happy with the performance of the M446s could also be worth considering. Shimano brakes generally have a good reputation across the range, but if it remains a problem then check out problem solving methods on the internet/ YouTube, or get them checked out at a bike shop. Even though the SLX brakes are considered a good price, £100 is still a fair amount of money to fork out, especially if you can get your existing brakes to work properly. Good luck!
