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!
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.
Bike Setup: Author frame, dnm usd-120 fork, clara disc, Halo combat rims, xt, tioga, continental tecion, club roost, odi log on grips, point racing chain device

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.
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)

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.
Rather see my sister a wh0re, than buy any other pedals!

I have never had this issue on any other steed I have spent a lot of time on ( except the stokers pedals on my Mtb. tandem, but thats different). Frustrated, it is probably time to move on to a different frame. Yes, the sag is set proper. Enjoy the way it rides in all other ways but t ... Read More »

Hey First Post!! Anyways......RE: the Crank Brothers Mallet II platform /eggbeater style clip-in. Had a chance to try out my new set on the trails yesterday and had a heck of a time un-clipping my left foot. The right foot came out fine but the left was way more tight and tensioned. Nearly unable to ... Read More »
just curious if people are finding pedal wrenches worth the $30+ (given use is only a handful of times per year) or could a normal wrench suffice? of course, i'm excluding extreme cases of rusted solid pedals which require tons of leverage to remove. i'm just wondering whether i should be adding thi ...
