    Hey all

    Looking to replace my venerable shimano 520 pedals as they are a bit battered and ‘loose’.

    After something with a platform for more stability.

    Any reccommendations – Don’t want an anchor on each crank arm although appreciate this type of pedal is a lways a bit heavier.

    XTR Trail or CB Acid would be nice but are £££

    any experience of other options? There are a few Shimano ones, CB Mallets, Time Z – anything else worth condsidering?

    also these – AtomLab Quickstep Clipless/Flat Pedal

    and these – http://www.bicyclehero.com/gb/wellgo-cleat-flat-bicycle-pedals-wam-d10-black.html

    Cheers!

    I’ve used the Time’s before – still have them in fact – though tend these days to use “normal” slipless pedals.

    Times are good – they are simply the Atac with a platform. Mine are a few years old – there were two versions, and mine are the lighter of the two.

    Shimano,

    the M647s are an excellent trail pedal, if a little heavy. Good performance and very reliable.

    The new XTRs look promising but not cheap.

    Will get shot down in flames for this, but I love my Mallets, work well as flat pedals, easy to unclipin a hurry and loads of float to prevent sore knees.
    You do have to take them apart and grease them every so often (takes 5 mins) otherwise the bearings don’t last,

    Another Mallet fan here.

    I asked this a few days ago, and someone said that shitmano are bringing out a cheaper version of the xtr’s but no further info or links mentioned to me.
    I’m still looking, I love the look of the mallets but used to have candy pedals and i had 2 sets fall apart in not much time so afraid to go down that route… used to have a set of time atacs too which were nice so the z controls could be an option.

    but those mallets look proper nice.

    the cheaper version of the xtr pedal is the M530 trail, think it is due in May

    these..? not much of a platform there is there?

    oh and have seen tons of reviews about the mallets not lasting well..?

    I have Mallets.

    Completely unserviced for over a year and have performed faultlessly (used for at least 10 miles a week, but often more).

    Tomorrow however they will fall apart on my way into work. I wasn’t touching wood 🙁

    a M540/XT version of the 530 trail pictured above would be tempting. Any news on that one?
