I'm still on Cannondale Freeride pedals that came w/ my Gemini, but for this christmas I was thinking about upgrading to some crank bros 5050's. I've never switched pedals before, will I notice that much of a differnece. ANyone tried the 5050's?
I have the 5050x's, they work pretty good IMO. I added some more spikes to them, but that's about it. Some people comment on the hump in the middle of the pedals, but I can't feel it when riding at all.
if your cannondale freeride pedals work well for you, then you don't have a big reason to replace them. if they'res something else on the bike that really needs upgrading i would do that instead of the pedals. if you do get new pedals look around a bit before just buying the 5050's. the easton flatboy is an excellent pedal that i own and love.
If you keep loosing pins & cant find any, the Easton flats i have are awsome or the Azonic flats. Yes the pedals are rifferent from brand to brand some work better than others. Also shoes will make a differance.
Expensive pedals are a waste of money. My $15 Diamondback labeled cheap platforms are the best pedals I've ever had, and I'm not cheap when it comes to shelling out cash for bike parts. Pedals with big names on them don't work any better or last any longer than a cheap ones, so long as they have big platforms and steel pins.
