Strengths:    grippy
somewhat light
bushing idea instead of bearings


Weaknesses:    pins need to be torqued often
bad bushing material falls apart
PRICE!!!


Bottom Line:   
so i fell for buying these as i've read so many good reviews. i found them for $122 instead of list price of $160 so i talked myself into them. bad idea! only reason i gave them a 3 on overall is b/c of how grippy they are. rode them hard for two months lost numerous pins and now b/c of poor material selection for their bushings, a groove formed on the crank side of the non-drive pedal. this groove now allows slop after the bolt has been torqued. this as you all know will allow contaminants in and eventually lead to catastrophe. this is awesome seeing how i have a 60 mile benefit ride in 6 days. so now i have to mail them in and see what dealer says then wait for replacements.

Strengths:    Looks, durability, performance

Weaknesses:    ?

Bottom Line:   
If you like a big grippy platform pedal, these are the sh@t. Not the thinnest or lightest but pretty close. Best platforms I'v used to date.

Strengths:    Wide platform, lots of cleats, super strong

Weaknesses:    None that I have found

Bottom Line:   
The first chance I had to use these was on the 12 mile loop at Council Bluff Lake, Missouri. The wide platforms made it feel like I was standing on solid ground no matter what the trail conditions were. The cleats held firmly to my shoes, even when I thought I was going down. I would highly recommend these pedals.

Atomlab Pimplite SS Rear Hub Slipping

I just got a Atomlab pimplite single speed rear wheel for my DJ bike. I would say the wheel works great aside from the fact that it is pretty much useless with horizontal dropouts. No matter how tight I torque it down it slips forward on the drive side. And to make matter worse, all the surfa ... Read More »

Atomlab Pimplite Rear Wheel DJ SS review

I just got my new Atomlab Pimplite Single Speed DJ rear wheel from UPS today. Overall it looks great, can't say much else because I can't use it. Purchased for the 6 pawl engagement and to save a little weight. If you think it fits 10mm x135mm dropout spacing, your wrong. You have to get a ... Read More »

Spoke Length Needed For Hope Pro 2 Evo hubss laced to Pimplite rims

Hello, I am having one hell of a time with a Hope distributor in China getting a pair of Hope Pro 2 Evo hubs laced up to a pair of PimpLite rims(ERD = 532). I went to his shop yesterday and he nearly had everything tightened up before he realized that the spokes were too long. I quickly realized ... Read More »
