    Thin, wide flat pedals

    Looking for some suggestions. I put 180mm crank arms on my bike & wouldn't mind a few extra mm's of ground clearance. I also have wide feet & could use a wider platform

    The Spank Spikes looks good, anything else I should be looking at?

    Everybody is going to tell you the Point One podiums. They are thin and wide and feel great, however I had constant issues with their bearings and the pedals had so much drag on them when pedaling that I wound up switching pedals.
    I would wait for the Specialized pedals that are coming out soon. Those seem like they are going to be amazing.

    Did a similar comparison. Was set on the Spikes but did some searching and went with the DMR Vault pedals. Seemed to be the largest pedal i could find at 115x115. Really like them and grip is ridiculous. Best price i found including shipping was from Wiggle.com in the UK. Got em for just under $110 shipped and took 7 days to get with no problems.

    Kona wah wah pedals are the widest I've found (crank to outside of pedal). Thin too

    I've been riding these for three months and REALLY like them! 100mm wide and 16mm deep at 335 grams for $65! Shipping is not bad from the UK; That's about the only place I can find them.

    Here is where I'm buying them from:

    Syntace has a new pedal coming out that comes in three sizes and looks awesome. The biggest size is a monstrous 97mm x 111mm.

    Deity decoys, Kona Wah, Answer Rove...all good HTi clones. Just a great big thin flat pedal. Can't go wrong (unless you buy a version with set screw pins like I did). Those Echo jawns are pure sex, though.

    I should add that the original Straightlines and Speedplay Drilliums are like ballroom dance floors...they may violate the "thin" directive, though.

    I took my kona wah wahs, retapped the threads, and slapped in some Straitline pins. Talk about grip!

    Pics please. I run wah wahs and I'm pretty happy with them. Shoes make a huge difference though. Had tons of grip with my previous shoes (NB trail running), but they were discontinued and I have yet to find a shoe to complement the pedals. I won't go the skate shoe route because, to me, they are not comfortable; though, the Teva Links looks like it might be worth a shot.

    Back on topic: I'm on my second pair of wah wahs and have no complaints. Only reason I'm on set two is b/c I wanted the white pair to go with my then new bike. Sold the first pair to a buddy who still runs them...well, they are on his bike; he just doesn't ride anymore. Haven't had to rebuild either set. Solid product.
    Another friend bought a pair of StraitLines recently. I gave them a try. Tons of grip, but noticeably thicker profile in comparison to the wah wah.

    Made the same - 180 cranks(Deore XT) with Point One Podiums. They were very comfortable but the second replacement just died wast week. They are wider also and can catch obstacles when tilting the bike or riding trough channels.
    At the end I moved back to 175s because 180s starts to hurt knees and overall I tired quickly.

    LIght and inexpensive yes (I have two pairs) but by today's standards they're hardly "thin". They are also prone to losing pins to rock strikes as the magnesium is a a bit soft.

    Cool find. If I remember wah wah measured 4.25"/108mm.

    Wonder if they measure to the spindle, or to the corners

    i just killed my second pair. first pair seized up after 2 seasons (cant complain a bit) and the most recent pair, i have lost a ton of pins. I figure I will try something else out. MG1s are a great AM, occasional FR/DH pedal. For straight DH, they might last a weekend rock gardens.


    Might also want to look into the nukeproof electrons. light, wide, thin and cheap. They are plastic, but I heard they are strong. I am planning on trying a set out.

    Have you looked at the new Tioga MT Zero? Certainly fit the 'thin' criteria... not sure how they'd hold up to abuse tho yet...

    Forte Pedal

    Performance Forte Platforms from Performance Bikes
    Wide, thin, super grippy, and inexpensive. I think I paid $40

    I have the Straitlines. Came off the Speedplays, which are not nearly as thin. Oh, and the Straitlines grip like no ones business. Never had a pedal before where I had to pick up my foot in order to move it on the pedal before.

    Wellgo B-132's are awesome. They are pretty thin, 354g light, and can take a serious beating...
    Pricepoint right around $50.00 a pair. Not exactly sure of the width, but wider than my HT's that's for sure...
