Pedals - Flat:
Flat pedals are ideal for those not wanting to use a clipless pedal system, they provide a large grippy platform for normal shoes to grip too. You can fit toeclips and straps to some flat pedals to benefit from pulling upwards when pedalling on hills or accelerating, these tend to be more for road/commuting use. Generally the main use for most types of this pedal now is Freeride or Downhill where quick placement and removal of the foot is essential.

Good price so HOT , but I have gone back to cheap plastic pedals (with LEDs) and seen my shin bruise count decrease!!!

BMX are mostly 1/2" but not always, basically if the bike has a one-piece crank it would normally be 1/2" pedals.

9/16" is the most common size and will do 90% of bikes.

Is there a proper square shoulder where the thread ends?
Some otherwise good pedals have angled or rounded shoulders that intoduce a weakness that will show up under hard off road use.
Is it 9/16" or 1/2"?

I would imagine so otherwise they would just come loose? I will let you know what they are like when they arrive, may post some pics up as well.

I agree with you, they would come loose. I've seen pedals with both angled and rounded shoulders and although the picture of these pedals doesn't show it clearly, the shoulder does looks rounded. If you could post after they arrive, that would be good.

Gifted, did they turn up? Can you post pics please?

These seem perfect for the new mtb i have ordered that comes with damn plastic pedals unlike my old one...Will replace straight away. Will they fit this do you think? *********.co.uk/ws/…VRI

Black flatties on ebay are over £9 for ones with metal centres too, and £12 in halfords, these look solid to me, which is good, the 6yr old metals on my current mtb, the left pedal broke, the core snapped/cracked open, and the assembly kept popping out, all the BB's fell out, and it was a pain. Replaced it with a plastic one i found in the shed which was too small, rebuilt the old core into the new pedal with the BB's from the plastic pedal... Now it has seized up. Good job my new bike is coming in 2 weeks.

Now, any deals for wireless cycle computers that are a nice shape, water bladders, cheap backpacks with many internal compartments, cheap cheap front and rear lights? Getting kitted up ready!

Thanks in advance,

Matt

Last time i checked they had gone
