- Recommend me pedals…
These are the same as the old Nanos – bit smaller than the Nano X…
I prefer them a bit smaller myself, as the actress said to the bishop.Posted 2 years agoSimonSubscriber
Definitely not Shimano Saint, first pair I had one pedal was loose on its axle out of the box. Replacement pair lasted a couple of years before the end of the axle sheared off.Posted 2 years ago
Replaced Saints with old style Nanos which have been good so far, (couple of months). Had these in my spares box for ages.
My favourites are the Kona Wah Wahs on my full suss. Similar to Nanos but smaller diameter grippier screws. These are still going strong after 5 years and well over 6000km with no maintenence, not even a replacement pin.amack23Member
definitely not shimano saints, quite possibly to worst “proper” flat pedals I’ve used
I’ve seen this a few times on here, but they have 4.6 out of 5 from 882 reviews on CRC! They can’t be that bad?!?
Has it anything to do with feet size. I bought saints on the strength of the reviews, though, hated them. Swapped them out for nukeproof electrons, found them much gripper and supportive , and cheaper to boot. I’ve size 12 feet again if that mattersPosted 2 years agostevextcMember

Perhaps, I’m size 8 and though I wouldn’t say the Saint’s are a favourite bit of kit … they are fine…
The Saints have pretty short pins and are pretty heavy.
Pins are short on the default but not bad when you take out the spacers and they aren’t as light as some alternatives … but they are £45
regreased once every year and the bearings still looked great a month ago when I stripped and regreased …
Based on choose any 2 they are not bad in all three … pretty durable, not overly heavy and fairly cheap… not the best in any of the three…Posted 2 years agojoebristolSubscriber
I’ve got Wellgo MG-1 which I got for a bargain price on eBay. Lovely metallic / pearlescent white colour out the box. Paint comes off very quickly though.
Surprisingly light for a flat pedal as made out of magnesium. So far I’ve not damaged them in any way despite numerous rock strikes.
However I’m on the lookout for other pedals to try as since swapping to 5.10 free riders the wellgo pedals feel a little bit narrow.Posted 2 years agoonewheelgoodSubscriber
These seem rather good for the money – £36. I don’t use flats much, but so far they’ve been fine.

By some strange coincidence I’ve been leafing through a copy of mbr from October 2012.
Their five minute fix covers superstar nano/ kona wah wah service.
They say that rebuild kits are available for £15 from superstar.
They use a 6mm Allen key along with 8 and 9mm sockets.
Once you get the axle and outboard cartridge bearings out of the pedal, you’ll need to stick a screwdriver in to tap out the inner bushing with a hammer.
Hope that makes sense.
+1 for wellgo
I’ve got a magnesium pair that unclip from the cranks. The threads on the pedal axles are super tough.Posted 2 years agoTom_W1987Member
Vaults – best grip I’ve had from a flat pedal – the Gamut Podiums are very close and are thinner but aren’t as concave feeling – but obviously get you closer to the ground, my previous Spike Spanks weren’t as grippy as either pedal and V8s get nowhere near them, Giant flat pedals are the only set I’ve torn to pieces in a crash and are made of cheap pot metal – stay away.Posted 2 years ago
