I have them, nice and grippy and appear to be lasting well.Posted 6 years agowreckerMember
The point one podiums are awesome (as is the rest of their kit) but pricey.
The superstar mag lites are 340 grams and good pedals. I got on well with them (the HT version)
HT have some interesting pedals (dont know where you could get them from though) and are usually well priced.

Greater ground clearance, lower centre of gravity, foot nearer axle and therefore less likely to roll the foot over.
Also, I find that thinner pedals make you feel like you are in the bike, rather that perched on top, which I guess is the same as the COG thing, but more noticeable.Posted 6 years agothebunkMember
Free DMR V12 Magnesiums!**

As your only stated criteria are flat & light, and I assume not too expensive then Wellgo MG-1’s. Magnesium is light, but not as robust as other metals.Posted 6 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Don’t go with the magnesium Nanos if you’re a rock-smacker, over the last couple of years of using other flat pedals I only ever lost a single pin, but the mag/tis lost one on the first ride, they’ve lost 4 since. I’ve been able to replace them each time- sometimes by retapping, mostly by gluing in a replacement- but it’s a pain. OTOH, they are very light.
Wellgo MG-1 is superb value… Bit thicker than a Nano though. Basically like a much improved V12- better platform, lighter, oh and much cheaper. Loads of the pins in mine are squint now but they haven’t lost any.
Not sure where I stand on the Electrons (aagh, pun not intended), they seem not to agree with some shoes… Did my first ride on them with my old MP90s at the weekend and they did not get on. But with all my other shoes (including my trailbuilding steelies) they grip fine.Posted 6 years agochivesMember
Nanos with titanium spindles get the weight down nicely, but FWIW I reckon DMR V8 / 12’s pin pattern fitted my old trainers better.
Question: In the Great Flat Pedal Debate, why are pins that are threaded through the pedal reckoned to be better than those just fitted in blind tapped holes? From an engineering point of view, when the working end of the stud or pin gets damaged / bent the only result is then destroying the thread in the pedal as you try to extract it, as you’d be drawing all of the damaged portion through the inevitably softer pedal body material.. (sorry, used to design machinery – seems like bad design to me..)
Wish I’d been using my nano flats on Saturday though, as fell heavily in thick gloop riding down the sunken and very appropriately named ‘Hell Lane’.Posted 6 years ago
