I got those Dimensions that I saw for $37.00 at Universal Cycles.

I figured I'd update this thread that if you're like 220# doing xc, or skinnier but doing All-Mtn riding, I think I'd stay away from them. They were 256g/pair on my scale, which is great for the price, but they don't look too strong. Great for the g/f though or strictly xc riding. :thumbsup:

This is a pretty common question. I'm seeing a lot of caged pedals which to some of us are different than platform pedals. However I think I may check out the Dimension pedals for a bike I'm building.

For platform pedals you can get DMR V12's with after market ti axles. I think this will make them around 460grams for a true platform pedal.

I'm looking for the lightest flat pedal out there, hopefully 400 g or less. I've been searching around and the best i can find is 450 g or so, which is too heavy for my application. Price isn't an issue. Thanks guys!

My MG-1's with ti spindles have held up just fine over the past year of riding. I weigh in at about 165lbs. The pedals weigh in at 312 g. I wouldn't hesitate to use them for downhill.

Oh...there are 2 pages, erm...!

I like the Syncros Mental pedals best for Trick, Dj, Dh and Fr...although I do not have tree trunk legs so I mainly use clipless peddels for everything other than Trick and Dj.

Xpedo MX-12 Curve Hurtle Alum Pedals are also pretty good and look amazing.



Xpedo Link

Green, Pink, red, black and white I think. The weight is about 380-90 there abouts, making it one of their lightest pedals, perhaps of course not THE lightest. There is another set that I firmly like very much but they are stupid expensive and really not worth the limited weight save.
