    All mountain flat pedals

    [SIZE=2]We really need a finishing kit forum, anyway I have Shimano DX flat pedals now and they have been great for a year and have only just started to loosen up and get a good spin going but I was wondering if you guys think they are good pedals cos I havenít compared them to any others.

    Are the flat pedals bellow any good? And are they better than the DXís? Iím all ears if you have any other suggestions that donít cost a bomb, thanks in advance!

    Must admit I'm liking my Gussett slim jims, longer pins and 5:10's for incredible grip!

    Hey, if you like what you have then don't change. I love my 50/50's but pedals are a personal thing. If you like what you are using that I say go for it. imo for what it's worth.

    All look pretty good if this is the type of pedal you're looking for. I have Wellgo B77s and CB 5050's on my bikes. I love 'em both.

    Gussett slim jims, Iíll add them to my list to go and touch up in my LBS.

    [SIZE=2]Duckkiller, they would be for a new bike so Iíd keep the DXís as they are really nice.

    So has anyone had those Truvativís?

    DXs are pretty legendary pedals I wouldn't let em go if I had any. DMR V12s for me

    [SIZE=2]Thatís one vote for the V12's then, like I mentioned in the last post I wont be getting rid of the DXís, I have them on 2 bikes, I was just wondering what else there is for my next bike.

    On a completely unrelated subject I have just ordered my SDG Bel-Air in white and black for my next bike.

    I definitely have a soft spot for the DX pedals, it is a shame that the pins are a bit on the narrow side. Too easy to smash them up, but then again I rip pins out of other pedals.

    Another option is the Welgo MG1 pedals, these are light! I have only heard good things about them, though some pedals with a lower profile may have a better feel. They might not be what you are looking for, but worth considering (and I do believe they are fully rebuild-able, though don't quote me on it).

    I have NC-17 MG Magnesium pedals. They are great. Light (ca. 380g) and grippy.

    I'm rockin the kona wah-wahs you have pictured and they are sweet. Insane grip, light, and low profile. They also shred your shins like nobody's business.

    [SIZE=2][SIZE=2]Yeah, Iím leaning towards the Konaís more DXís and I donít like the what he has to say about Truvativís pedals: [/SIZE][SIZE=2]http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=398575[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=2]I was under the impression from other riders that the CB 50/50ís arenít that good because they have no dip in the centre for the shoe to sit in and the lower model it pretty much useless cos of the bearings, a bit like DMR V8, people say they smooth out but they never do.

    I recommented Holzfellers. Using them for third season now and not have any problems Also look at Ringle ZU ZU. This pedals have a little more grip with your shoes, than Holz.

    [SIZE=2]What do you think of the Straitline pedals? Apparently they have polymer bearings.[SIZE=2]

    I think I'm going to try either the Wah Wahs or Straitlines.

    I use Wellgo MG-1 as well. They grip well, are slightly concave and do not mind getting bashed into rocks.

    The finish rubs off, but the base metal is that lustrous looking magnesium so the overall look is not cheap and nasty, just "hardcore".

    Straitlines...

    My buddy has a set of Straitline's on his Iron Horse Sunday WC and they're friggin awesome. I've been running Ringle Zu Zu's for a while and they're good, I just need something wider, anyone know who makes a wider pedal. I have big feet.

    EGF, I'd suggest the Wellgo MG-1's...super reliable and very light (relatively speaking), I'd also suggest (for a bit more) the V-12 Mags....if you turn into a weight weenie later you can always upgrade to the ti spindle too! Those are the only two I'd consider for the kind of riding suggested by your other posts and your bikes' setup

    OK, for a new bike, cannot go wrong. Crank Bros does not make a bad product.

    I run the MG-1's on one bike and the Shimano DX's on the other. I wish the DX's had the thru bolts instead of the smaller set screws, but other than that both feel good underfoot.

    I run DMR V12's, I've now had them for 6 yrs (not full time riding but have done a lot) and they are as good as they came out of the box, well other then scratches and missing pins.
