- Really good flat pedals?
Hammered the shit out of my vaults for a couple of years now, through my own fault i bent an axle (which was about £6 to replace) and other than that I’ve just took the pedals off the axles a couple of times a year and pumped a bit of grease in. Job done. Really good platform, nice shape to em and not stupid expensive.Posted 4 years agoguitarheroSubscriber
The flat pedals I’m currently running on my bikes rated in order of preference are;
1.Hope (with grippier pins)
I used to be a fan of the Straitline pedals, and yes, they are easy to service. I just ended up getting annoyed with how often I had to do it.Posted 4 years agoRusty MacSubscriber
Have a look on YouTube for that beardy bloke from great rock, he did quite a good video on how to strip and rebuild vaults. It would at worst help you decide if there serviceability is what you are looking for.
I have a pair and find them bigger yet slimmer and gripper than my v12’s.

+1 for saints. Happy to spend money on shiny bits but it’s seems hard to justify the costs of a lot of these pedals to then smash them into some rocks. The saints are really good and you can pick them up for sub £40. Half of a set of Vaults and close to a third of hopes.Posted 4 years agomudfishSubscriber
Bit late to the party, but my vote goes to Burgtec lovely Penthouse flats. You do really feel like part of the bike with the big platforms and super grippy pins. My MkIIIs, which I’ve had over 4 years, have lasted really well grip is fab and damaged pins (rare as they are strong) can be replaced without problems thanks to clever oversize base threads. Bearings last and last too. British MADE. Fly the flag, why not.Posted 3 years ago
MkIVs are cheaper, lighter AND thinner.
Definitely on my wishlist (if only the III’s weren’t still riding like new I could justify it! Vaults are great too, grippy and light, but fragile in my experience.anysizeMember
Are the “grippier” Hope pins just the hollow ones e.g.:
Or is there another even grippier option?Posted 3 years agoqtipSubscriber
I have Vaults and Burgtec MkIIs. The Vaults are great and just as grippy as the Burgtecs but the seal keeps on popping out of one of them and the bearings have already gone rattley (only had them a couple of months). On the other hand, the Burgtecs have only had a single bearing change in 5 years and are indestructible.
I wish I’d gone for the new Burgtecs instead of the Vaults, especially now their weight is competitive with similar pedals (the old MkIIs are ridiculously heavy).Posted 3 years agomindmap3Member
Can’t fault my Nano’s really….especially whilst they’re being jobbed out at £37 a pair. They’re pretty light, grip well and have lasted well ans come in pretty colours if that’s your bag.
I’d like a pair of Vaults and came close to buying some but couldn’t do it. The thought if scraping an expensive pedal on rocks….Posted 3 years agoHob NobMember
The new Burgtecs are a bit odd, the platform runs right up to the crank arm. As a spakky footed flat pedal rider I’d be smashing my ankles and shoes into the crank arms non stop.
The Vaults are pretty good though, although I’ve just stuck with A set of NP Neutrons that came on a bike I bought a while ago, as pedals tended to be consumable, although these are nearly 2 years old and still going strong!Posted 3 years ago
