All...I have been running Odyssey Ceilinki's on my hardtail and they have taken a pretty good beating and are now making a lot of noise. I need something more solid and sealed to handle my weight, and crappy technique. I am thinking something with bigger bearings. I have looked at Holzfellers, DK Distortions, or even the sealed bearing Odyssey. What do you all recommend? I just put on Saint cranks.......

no matter what, paint them pink before installing them. you riding Rays tonight Fruitcake? If so, Im down for some bareknuckle boxing beforehand, winner gets the other's bike.

Oh wait, you had a pedal question....The Holzfellers look really pimp and can take a real pounding. They aren't real cheap though and the pins wear somewhat fast, good thing they are replaceable...For something really grippy, bomber, and fairly cheap, check out the Sun Ringle Zuzu's. I have em on the Molly if you want to check them out. Ill be at Rays around 7ish. Hopefully my shoulder will let me ride. Lemme know if yer going.

Holtzfellers

Great pedals. Have them on my VP and they get rock slammed at Diablo and ask for more. Plus Truvativ was nice to me and sent me a brand new pair last year when one of the bearings went in the old set.

Anything NYC.... either the racelites (1) gloryholes (2) or lenoskys (3)....


that or if those are too expensive, then try the demolition pedals.

Funn Souljams, rode them all season on the dh bike, they took some serious abuse. Grip Like velcro. And they are pretty cheap.

maybe we'll hook up Saturday for a ride then. I have both and yes, the bearings are good sized. I have really wailed on both and so far, so good. For the money, the Zuzu's are tough to beat imo.

cielenckis come in sealed bearing.

Don't get the Holzfellers... you can't service or replace the big main bearing yourself. You have to send it to Truvativ, which means down time or else having back-up pedals available.

Wait - if you're doing Urban mostly, why don't you just stick with cheap-o pedals and replace them when they're destroyed? I dont see the point in buying bling pedals for an urban bike.

Yeah, that is an option, Celinki's are about $25....I wanted to see if there was anything you all thought was good that wasn't much more....Seems like the sealed ones are in the $50-$70 range and even a little higher in some cases....

Where do I find the NYC pedals? Can't seem to find info on them?

as always, a vote for azonic a-frames.
good feel and good sturdiness.
mine are almost 4 years old and still pretty steadfast.

but i just picked up nyc freerides to replace em. :D
i loved my friend's lenosky's (they feel so good) so i jumped at the chance
when my friend was selling his gloryholes.

whatever you do, don't get the 5050's.
they have a raised convex middle that makes the pedals feel like "butter sticks"
:confused: :confused:
maybe that'd be good for pedal grinders tho.

Those look made to clear mud which is not often found on urban rides. Also, the pins arent replacable and dont look very big.

DK Distortions.....

I ended up gettin these from my LBS for a pretty good price, pretty grippy, pins are long and all are replacable. Big sealed bearings, pretty low profile, somewhat similar to the holzfellers but a little cheaper......
