    Pedals... so many pedals.. but which ones to try

    I am in search of new pedals to replace the stock ones that came with my stumpjumper fsr-comp 29. I have googled and youtube for the last hour or two and I am more lost than before I started.

    I am 100% new to MTB. Today was the first time I went for a mountain ride. Is there a dual purpose pedal that incorporates both? Should I buy a set of each and try? I have seen good and bad reviews for crank brothers mallets and shimano M985.

    What other ones do people use? So much to learn with this hobby

    What do you mean by "both"?

    Are you wanting flat pedals? How much do you want to spend?

    Right. Flats? Clipless? What style clipless? On a lark, I'll throw this out. I've been riding SPD's since....98? Maybe? - you'll have to pardon, my old memory grows hazy. I recently got tired of Shimano's premium pricing, and apparent decline in quality, but didn't really want to move away from SPD's since all 5 of my bikes have SPD pedals, and I really don't want to change pedals to whatever bike I'm riding. So I picked up a set of Xpedo pedals - SPD compatible, more float, lighter, supposedly higher quality, and much less expensive than equal Shimano pedals. So far, so good.

    Old clipless guy here. After about a 10 year break, I ended up trying the flats route for about a month and decided it just wasn't for me. I am now riding a bigger FS bike and doing some gravity fed riding which led me to the mallets by CB. They've got great float and give some feedback around the cleat to me through the flats. They are a bit heavier but I get the best of both worlds.

    i have a set of spank spikes on my rocky mtn and they are nice and wide and relatively thin.

    i did have an issue once where they cam apart on the trail, my buddy found the parts and i put it back together again on the fly and then disassembled and used loctite at home the next day.

    i also like the look of those flat irons from azonic, but have never seen them in person.

    now if only i could find a pair of shoes i really like locally.

    I came here to post about the Forte's. I can't endorse them enough. I was looking for another pair of flats as my pair of "old reliables" finally seized up. I got these just to have something to ride until I could get my hands on something better. They stick to 5-10s like glue, they rotate just fine and don't cost an arm and a leg. Like Burt 4x4 said, you can get them at Performance Bikes either in store or on their website. I ended up picking mine up for $60. They are better than some $120 pedals I have had before. The only complaint about them is the hex nut pins and it's not a big problem. I'd rather have pins that are replaced through the bottom of the pedal instead of a hex nut. If I mangle a pin or two on the top, I don't want it to be a pain in the arse to replace it. If it's a hex nut, the carnage will usually mangle the part I need to get to to put the hex wrench in to get it out. Yeah, a pair of pliers will work, but I'd like to avoid that if I can. The funny thing about all this is that I haven't needed to fix any pins on these pedals at all yet after about a full season of riding. It's a moot point. Great pedals and may be one of the best bang for the buck deals on the market. Way better qualities than the Wellgo's I used to run.

    I went with Azonic 420's for my new bike, got to try out a set a few weeks back. So many pedals IMO are are just personal preference, most of the spikes are the same , same grip, just pick the weight you want to pay for.

    Price 0-200 I would guess. Pedals are cheap compared to the bike which makes me wonder why they even bother with plastic pedals when buying new.

    Is there a pedal that allows normal shoes to work then be able to use clip in shoes too?

    Hey MrMetallo and anyone else who cares and wants to know,

    If you have a pedal with top inserting screws, pins, hex, whatever...all you gotta do is get a small metal saw before they grind down to the pedal body and carve a small notch. Then a nice flathead screwdriver will take care of the rest. Can fix any pedal that way with top insert style pedals.
    Get out and ride even when you don't want to because ten minutes into the ride you'll be glad you did.

    There are a few pedals that offer/claim that. The Shimano PD-M324 that has the clip on one side. Shimano PD-M324 Pedals > Components > Pedals > Clipless Pedals | Jenson USA Online Bike Shop

    Shimano has a few others, but the ones I've tried (PD-M545) just isn't very comfortable with non-cleated shoes. Wellgo has the WPD-95B Wellgo WPD-95B Clipless/Clip Pedals > Components > Pedals > Clipless Pedals | Jenson USA Online Bike Shop which I haven't tried.

    I've rode Azonic420's and Answer Rove's for years. Recently I rode a friends Prime which had Chromag Scarab's on it and liked them as well. All stuck well to my 5-10's well.

    I'm considering some new pedal's, my roves had a hard seaons last year. They arent shot but we all like fresh part's.

    Canfield Crampon Ultimates if you're going full flats. No question. Incredible grip, very comfortable, super thin, and incredibly strong. Best pedal out there, and worth every penny and more.

    If you go for clippy-platform hybrids, get the Mallet DH. Don't get the cheaper Mallets. They don't last. But be aware that even the DH Mallets do not grip remotely as well as real flats. They will get you by, but I found myself very nervous feeling when clipped out. The clip mechanism feels a bit like a roller under the ball of your foot. So I stayed in 99.9% of the time, negating the benefits of the platform. But in its own right, the Mallet DH is a very good pedal. The only Crank Brothers pedals I'd use. That egg beater mechanism is very nice to get into and out of in a hurry, and it clears mud like it wasn't even there.

    Time pedals are very good, but expensive and their platform hybrid Z-Strong and Atac MX pedals are absolutely worthless as platforms. Like stepping on grease with a big lump in the middle where the cleat is.

    Shimano's SPD system is incredibly outdated. People still like it, and I cannot figure out why. SPDs are beyond awful if you get mud or little gravel bits in the pedal or cleat, and they feel very notchy to get into and out of. Zero float from side to side makes them hard on some peoples' knees. They just plain suck compared to newer designs.

    Not anything good, honestly. i've been down that road a long way, and never found anything that lived up to its intent. Most fall FAR short at both being a clip-in and a platform.

    Shimano PD-M785 for SPD. Pretty much bullet proof.

    Straitline DeFactos for Flats. Uber-grippy, but god help you if you slip off a pedal and aren't wearing guards.

    I also have to agree if your going for platform pedals the Canfield Crampon Ultimates are worth the price.

    Shimano PD-M780 or PD-M785. BULLETPROOF and super easy to grease!

    I can't believe how hard I've smacked mine with no ill effects whatsoever.

    For best results, I think it's probably better to have them separate, clipless pedals with clipless shoes and flat pedals with flat shoes, as there's much less compromise that way.

    If you want flat/platform pedals, these are solid quality pedals at a good price ($30-60). They're actually made by a brand called HT (their Nano series), but are made to another brand's specs or are simply rebranded.

    Nashbar Verge
    Nukeproof Proton

    Forte Covert
    Nukeproof Neutron

    Forte Transfer
    Nukeproof Electron
    Deity Compound

    If you want premium quality, you're looking at paying $100+. These are what you want if you can appreciate quality.

    Spank Spike
    Canfield
    HT (EVO series)
    etc.

    Things in between usually are subpar for the price (assuming street price or msrp) compared to these, considering the new trend of wanting thin platforms that are tough and have just the right amount of grip.

    I'm in the same boat on pedals. But no clipless for me. Rode the old Primo flats off my bmx bike for a year and then went Azonic 420's. They grip well, but I generally wear a 12 wide and they are a bit narrow. I think I've narrowed down to the DMR Vaults, or the Spank Spikes, but I'm leaning toward the vaults.

    I just rebuilt some Wellgo pedals that came on my bike. I cut off some of the excess material and drilled/tapped some holes for some machine screws. I haven't had them out on the trail yet (because of the snow) but I'm looking forward to trying them out since they were $Free.99! A simple bench test proves that they are sticky to my shoes, won't know for sure until I ride it though.

    I am currently running HT AE03 flats and they are hands down the best pedals I have had. Downside is the price but you will not be disappointed.

    Nice! I hadn't thought of that. I have a narrow file that would work. I could throw it in the camelback without too much trouble.

    Poll on the All Mountain page place clipless vs. Flats at 65/35. I think a lot of guys would find themselves faster or more comfortable on a set of modern day great flats with a good pair of shoes... Especially the Enduro/AM crowd.

    try both, if your new I would say flats if your tying new stuff technically, if your comfortable with your trails go clipless. I ride mallets but I wouldn't suggest them for someone new to clipless. With crank brothers you gotta twist more, the angle of release seems futher to me, and the spring tension is preset. But they do loosen as the brass cleats wear. I actually took a dremel tool to mine and shaped them to release a bit easier. to confuse things more clip pedals with spiked platforms act differently with different shoes. my answer shoes are more arched than my fivetens. so they float more not engaging the spikes. I had to put in the taller spikes and take the shims out from under the cleats. I do like the extra support from the surrounding platform.

    in contrast shimano and wellgo are spd..... which usually has tension adjustment. so you can set them to your comfort level. shimano also has easier release cleats. I believe there the 56 cleats.
    for the most part I would say flats.... as your learning your skills, just to take the being stuck element out of it, It can be a hindering distraction. as you develop, you can learn or condition yourself to get out of clipless. JMO. im sure many may feel the opposite, learn clipless first.

    I also ran half clip/half platforms from nashbar for a while. great price great idea. the only problem is that if you tend to start preferring clip or flats, its annoying to have to take you eyes off the trail to get the pedal flipped the way you want it. but they do work for predominantly riding clipped and going to the flatside for sketchy stuff. if you go this route, these pedals are more effective with a tennis shoe sole surrounding the cleat, usually marketed at DH, or even some touring shoes. something with a tennis shoe type sole around the cleat. standard mtb clipless shoes don't engage the flats well. Theyre more like football cleats.

    +1 Made center pins longer and all the rest shorter, awesome grip with 5.10's and just the right amount of float for me.

    I ran Skyscrapers (V1) for a while and loved them, but hated the pins on the old version. I still have them and use them on another bike. I've been running Chromag Scarabs on my Surge. So far so good.

    You really do not know what you are talking about, do you?

    It is the third generation of SPD right now, it does not work even close to the first gen. They are popular for a reason - they are bulletproof and work perfectly fine.

    If you like the Time/CB style retention mechanism, get Look Quartz.

    I have about 350miles on these Forte Covert pedals. I can point my toes get full circle power easy sticks to my 5.10s like peanutbutter on bread....
    The new model is black, the grey is no more....Performance Bike carrys them..thin, light..hex bolt hole on the inside, comes with replacement pins..won't brake the bank....Not as SICK as thoes ^^^RaceFace^^ (me want!!) but they work great!

    While riding..nope cuz my 5.10s don't slip..now walking the bike..like into the garage to park it..sometimes I'll scratch my leg on accedent..a simple brush by will cut you LOL

    If my 5.10 slips it's cuz I'm crashing anyway LOL...super sticky = no slipping
    I guess if you miss the pedal with yer foot..bound to happen...I don't care about a litle pain and blood anyway..much better than being tied to my bike..for me :-)
    I'm not super graceful so crashing is part of my ride and when I go down..prefer thye bike to be..not under me or ontop of me..push bike away then proceed with slamming the ground! LOL
    Ride MORE = Live Longer
    Love Dirt / Hate Pavement

    damn the price is right... $50 for a set of carbon pedals isn't bad at all

    yeah, I usually get pedal bite when biking up hill and then I hit a sudden water drainage ditch and it slips out, or if I change down a gear when i'm putting too much pressure on the pedals
