As the title says, do Shimano M540 pedals have any float, if so how much. Can't seem to find any information on the Shimano website.

    Definitely. Pretty much the same amount of wiggle as M520 but not sure what percentage that is

    There is not that much difference but the M540's just feel a bit smoother and better quality, imo. Worth the extra few quid over M520 but only when it is time to buy again (as opposed to "upgrade").

    OK, just picked the M540's as an example, looking for something to put on a road bike to take on holiday so I can walk about a bit. But when you say "wiggle", your not talking the same sort of float you'd get with something like a Time or Speedplay road pedal?
