Flat pedal recommendation for £40
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?Posted 5 years ago
Nanos- big, thin, not light though. I think they’re currently cheaper from Exotic than Superstar, always worth shopping around, it’s the same pedal under lots of different brands and names.
For cheap and weightweenie, Wellgo’s MG1 is a fair bit lighter, and a good quality pedal. Not the biggest cage (or rather, the pins aren’t that far out on it) and not the toughest, but still good.Posted 5 years agojeffcapeshopMember
i got these wellgo ones recently – £30 and relatively light (320g advertised) http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=85577
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.Posted 5 years ago
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.Posted 5 years ago
