Just bite the bullet and go for it
Buy cheap – buy twice. Burgtecs will last you at least three years (or at least they used to guarantee that with the MK2s)
Replaceable internals and pins for when the inevitable happens and resale value will be fairly high in comparison to other pedals

Just get them! I’ve got a pair ok Mk 2s that have taken an absolute beating and are still going strong. Don’t get Superstars if you’ve got big feet, the platform is way too small. There’s not even really a weight penalty with the new Burgtecs, and they’ve got a great shape.
The only other pedals I’d consider at the moment, for my size 12 feet, are DMR Vaults. I’d wager that the Burgtecs are stronger and will last longer though.Posted 4 years ago
Looks like free shipping on the Burgtecs? Just went through the checkout and didn’t seem to offer any shipping rates just 99 quid all the way through. That’s something like 170 bucks. Compared to 115 bucks for the Vaults. I know it’s a bit anal but the red Vaults with blue pins look gawj. That and the 55 buck saving… Oh indecision…

I help make the Burgtecs so I will shed some light on them. First off they’re fully CNC machined from solid billets of aluminium. These means they are very strong and won’t shatter unlike your cast pedals. You can upgrade the axles to some ti ones if you wish and not being biased they are rather pimp. We just had an offer where you could have some custom etching done on them but it’s just finished now.Posted 4 years ago
Here’s me just machining lots of the lovely pedals at work.
