A colleague is leaving next week and as a leaving present we are getting him some flat pedals. I dont ride flat pedals so am after some recommendations please. The budget is £40 max and they need to be lightweight since he is a closest weight weenie. He has been looking at Superstar pedals – are they any good or should I go for something else?
however they have no pins near the inside centre – normally fine, but a couple of times night riding i’ve got water on them and they’ve frozen over – feels like they could do with an extra one in there. it’s probably a fairly niche problem though.. they seem fine in mud etc.
Mmm. Electrons, I didn’t like- convex body so felt like lots of weight on the axle not the pins, much less grippy than the competition. Quite shoe dependant though, my Five Tens and ancient bendy Vans were alright on them but my stiffer Shimanos and Vans weren’t so good. Couldn’t see any reason to keep them, my other pedals are just plain better.
Thanks for the suggestions.
Heads = Wellgo B185 320g £29.99
Tails = Exotic alloy peadls 430g £33.79
Probably the Wellgos – lets face it he will be riding his 6″ travel bike around George Bush Park in Houston – not exactly the “gnarliest” of terrains 😉
