Strengths: BIG, good all over grip, not too grippy that you stick to them, but enough to alow you movement, removable pins (grub screws!)
Weaknesses: Can't access the bearings as the cap head sockect at the end of the pedal must be glued in or something so you can't maintain them which is crap as after a week they begin to become very spinny pedals, not good when you are airbourne with your feet off the pedals and looking to put them back on before you land!!! You get me?
A massive pedal that is good at first but do not last long in performace. Better on a DH bike than a Dirt jumper cos of the pedals being a bit too spinny for my liking and also let down by the non maintainable factor! Every pedal needs greasing once in a while, and when you payingover $50 for a pedal, you want something that will last!

Strengths: looks pretty, when your foot is on it, it doesn't move anymore, like you were locked on cross country automatic pedals ... and it's a bit strong :p
Weaknesses: none for me at the moment
Well i did buy my "Le Dude" frame, then i had to change my pedals, and the choice was not a choice : i had to buy the 24's Toasters to go on the 24's bike ... i'm french, and i really really like those frenchy products like 24's stuff (take a look @ other products on their website) ... Finally, those pedals rocks :)

These are awesome pedals. A bit expensive over on this side of the atlantic (I picked them up in the UK), but well worth it. They have taken a BEATING as I've learned to race DH and just have a few scratches on them. They spin like they're brand new, I've replaced about half the pins (which have even ripped out, all without destroying the threads). They are immense, about 10x11cm, much bigger than anything else I've seen, even the Atomic Aircorps. I'd recommend these without hesitation. Only 4 for value because they're expensive but worth it.
Or, how many cyclists would it take to power a home for a day?

I lost my smith toasters, and I'm bummed that they are discontinued.
The main reason I loved them was that they are perhaps the only glasses that fit my (very very small) face. Seriously every other pair is just too damn big! Don't mind the new 70's cop glasses trends, but the scale needs to be ... Read More »

I don't normally wear it on my face because when I sweat it gets it my eyes and mouth (and we all know what that tastes like). But after a long, Quebec winter, and 8 hours this weekend on the bike... I look like I fell asleep on the toaster. Anybody using something to prevent racoo ... Read More »
