The Slim Jim loose ball alloy pedals are super sleek and slim and boast a great price!The foot huggin' 2 way concave pedals keep your feet properly planted at allTimes.The pins are replaceable and movable,To customize how much grip you want.TheTough CroMoly spindle will hold upThroughThe abuse of mountain biking.
Strengths: Super a$$ strong! Smooth and many flashy colors!
Weaknesses: pins that came on them were a little short. Found them to slip occasionaly.
I will never give up these pedals. Stronger than many in their weight/price range. After changing the pins they grip my feet well in all conditions. I have smoked these on a few rocks recently - very impressive. Just as strong as Primo at half the weight and better axels!! You find them, you buy them, you love them!!
Weaknesses: None, Unless you count how mine are white and they get dirty
These are the best platform pedals in the world! I have been kicking the sh*t out of them for the past month and they are so Grippy! the bearings are incredibly smooth! you can take a five foot drop with both feet vertical and they wont fall off.
if you are looking for some new BAD@$$ pedals, Buy these!!!!!!!!!!

Strengths: Looks amazing, replcable axle and pins and the wicked coulours i got fluro pink.
Weaknesses: Paint chips of easy.
Great pedal practically will last a lifetime, very grippy and works well with any bike.
The paint chips easy but it looks cool and a bit like camo.
I use them with my 5 10 karvers and its heaps good i can whip heaps far out and still have control.

Strengths: - Look awesome, BMX style - Sealed bearings! - Amazing White (not many good pedals in this colour) Have seen the pink ones and are incredible too - Long and wide platform but not too big (for anybody with 9-11 feet size) - Great grip; smooth/rough surface with removable pins. - Well built with big holes; mud can be remove easily - Come with a kit of replacement pins - There's a magnesium version, more expensive but lighter < 470 gr, (only in black)
Weaknesses: - Maybe too expensive (60 €, around 75 $, aluminium) but after see and try them I think they worth it - Difficult to find them out there, but can order by internet
First of all I must say that I've only tried them for a few hours, some downhill and street, with several jumps and landings. Therefore I can't answer about durability but is my only fear at this moment, the rest have everything saisfied me. Anyway they look quite strong, give a fantastic grip, well-made with sealed bearings and look really cool. My last pedals have been a pair of Crank Bros Mallet, also in aluminium, with similar weight and white coloured too. Differences: no egg-beater (remember mallet are both, automatic and platform) so it gives you much better grip with regulars; the Mallet give no bad grip with those but only to use ocasionally because of the cleats; similar platform length but wider in the Slim Jim; grip pins. Definately I'm happy with this couple, a good purchase!
So - which would you pick and why?
For general riding with 120mm fork, 1x10. To compliment a Nimble 9 (rigid and ss).
In UK so Honzo easily cheapest, SJ and YS similar in price. YS is lighter.Read More »
I've been looking at the 2SoulsCycles QH and Slim Jim frames, either an XL for the SJ, or XXL for the QH (XL is sold out and still waiting on an answer for XXL QH). And as Nevada 29er pointed out to me in a PM, all the 2Souls geometry figures are based on a 100mm Reba. Guess I overlooked that fact w ... Read More »
The QH is currently out of stock, but the Slim Jim is essentially the same bike with smaller 27.2 ST and 2.25 rear tire clearance. Also less jack ($), more color options, and available now!
Anyone take taken delivery of one of these bad boys yet?

Picked up a pair of Blackspire slim Jim pedals. Nice pedal and super thin. However the pins are a little short and I'm not getting great grip.
Does anyone know what size pins they take or any other manufacturer ? I've mailed Blackspire but no word yet. Also can't seem to find any re ... Read More »

I bought a pair of Gusset Slim Jim pedals. I've always used clipless pedals until now, but ...and don't laugh... I've bought a recumbent, and it has rather evil low speed handling, and I need to be able to bail out pretty quickly!
