I bought a pair of Crampon Ultimates to compliment my Yelli Screamy build a couple months ago. When I first pulled them out of the box I was startled at the scary appearance. Then I rode them and thought "They are great but I can tone down the pins length a bit". After a couple of rides with other pedals I realized they were perfect as is and always gravitate toward the Crampons Ultimates. I just got a fat bike and these pedals are excellent for winter boot and snow use.
My problem is I lose pins at an alarming rate and admittedly I pedal strike at least once every ride. I also bend the pins fairly regularly. The other day I was climbing a steep section of trail that has 6" of snow over rocky terrain. I wasn't high cadence cranking and touched a rock. Immediately stopped to inspect the pedals after replacing a half dozen pins an hour earlier. Yep, knocked one out. I understand that this is going to happen and I'm likely not going to mitigate pedal strikes but what will help? Should I try shorter pins or get wild with thread locker?
