I ride road with SPD SLs yellow. I find it more difficult to clip into my MTB than the SLs.I might add I also only use MTB shoes - can't stand road bike shoes - I know that goes against the RULES - slip off pedals too easy with road bike shoes - especially after unclipping
I just added these for the same reason myself. I got the black ones, but paint chipping from the cleat. I am happy with them.Shimano PD-A530 SPD Dual Platform Bike Pedal
I decided on these because I wanted dual platform. I thought it would be easier to hop on the bike and take a quick spin if I was adjusting brakes or deraillers without having to change shoes. These are the only ones I've ever had, so I really can't compare them to any others. So far, I like them.
