if you are looking for a good pair of clipless pedals with a platform as well....look at the crank bros mallets....or any of the shimano PD whatever ones.... there are lots of them on www.pricepoint.com

Looking for some recommendations on a good set of BMX (clipless) style pedals? Lightweight and good pattern. Thoughts?

Thanks! :)

BMX (clipless) style pedals
what? you mean clipless where you need shoes with a cleat to lock-in???? your description is throwing me off...

well, I run animal hamilton pedals, which are definitely "BMX style" but not "clipless".... I also had a set of odyssey jc's and primo tenderizers... but I like the hamiltons much better. more pins. the FLY ruben's are sick too, but way more than I was going to fork out.

Clipless meaning flat platform pedals that dont require a special shoe. You can run them in your slippers if you want.

in the biking world....clipless pedals are kind of like an oxymoron type of thing i guess...they are really pedals that have clips that go on the soles of riding shoes....hence the name clipless because when you aren't clipped in then they have no clip.....:skep: :eekster:

if you just want a good set of platforms, get something with sealed bearings....and replaceable pins. there are tons of good sets out there, just get something reasonable.

My mistake. I figured by the BMX style and description I gave it was obvious. My apologies I think everyone knows what I meant now. :)

yeah, I thought I knew what you meant....

but I think you'll find most people here don't actually run bmx pedals, but instead, mtb company made "bmx style" platforms. like syncros mental, or bmw, or azonic, or NYCfr, etc....

I have some Atomlab Aircorps on my fr bike, and old SunRingle Octanes on another, but I still love my Animals the most.

are you using them for DH, FR, street, grinding, dj, or what? all around? are you looking for the strongest, or lightest, or thinnest, or what? just the most versatile? it helps to narrow down what you are looking for, or are you just straight up asking for recommendations in numbers....

Im just getting back into mtb riding after being away from the sport for 8 years. Picked up a Stumpy FSR about 2 months ago now and lovin it. I never ran clip style pedals before so when I picked up the bike I had them throw on a set of cheapie bmx style pedals. I know I should learn to ride in clips but havent made the move yet, I am still pretty active about putting my foot down in sections (old bmx kid in me). I use the bike for everything pretty much, alot of local trails, st, dh, fr, its all I have right now. I have seen some out there like the 50/50 pedals that have a bigger platform which would be nice but im really curious if with the type of pedal I am using if ill even notice a better version of it or dont bother until I move into a clip type pedal.

Planet X makes some nice, inexpensive platforms. In wicked colors too!

Wellgo B-67. Sealed bearings, replaceable pins, big platform. The axle's have "fully round ends" where it contacts the crank so it doesn't chew up the crank arm. For $35 at PricePoint they are nice pedals. I've got 'em on two bikes now.
