    Strengths:    They grip!

    Weaknesses:    Hard to find, These things are not sold here in the U.S. You guys need to get a deler over here!

    Bottom Line:   
    I think I'm the first guy to officially have these pedals here in the U.S. Everytime I encounter a freerider, they ask me what kind of pedals are those? The color and pins really stick out!(pun)Great pedal for intermediate freeriders,downhill bikers and trials riders.

    Strengths:    strong grip
    cheap but worth way more

    Weaknesses:    i hav still got marks of the pins after nearly 7 months but they are worth the pain for the grip and strength

    Bottom Line:   
    well worth it , all though the red comes off easy but still works well. If you can afford it get the sealed bearings and remove several pins to ease the pain but thr grip ins,t effect

    Date Reviewed: April 3, 2002

    Strengths:    look good, replacable pins, ok choice of colour

    Weaknesses:    the side of my left pedal completely snapped off!!i ride trials so they will get knocked about a bit(im very light,not a heavy rider) but it was a new bike so i wasnt ridin hard or doin anythin enough to punish them to the point of snapping! pants bearings, mine were shagged after about a month. needed servicing often.

    Bottom Line:   
    alright pedals for plain ridin, dont bother if u ride anything slightly aggressive. get some rob warners,amazing grip,cheap,look cool,nasty shin wreckers tho(£14-chainreactioncycles)

    Submitted by Kimbus a Weekend Warrior from Helsinki, Finland

    Date Reviewed: March 31, 2002

    Strengths:    They look as cool as a Ferrari!Goddamn!Large, for my ladylike size 47 (europe) foot! Nice&good spikes that are easy to replace (just buy new ones). The bearings are total sh!t, I first thought that there is sand inside but the balls were just so badly made that....damn! But but, the pedals can be opened and fixed with some good'n'old swedish-vaseline, in about 15 minutes,and after that, theyl hurrln'n'snurllll or something for the next 1000 km! The pedals can also take more hit than a average wife without breaking!! I love these pedals almost more than my girlfriend!

    Weaknesses:    Tore my leg badly (twice!!), my sister threw up after she saw my foot! The bearings are crap, they rust and start make noise after a week of use, but they can be easily fixed! You'l always have to ride with proper shoes on.

    Bottom Line:   
    Rather see my sister a wh0re, than buy any other pedals!
