    Pedal help???

    I'm 6'2 350 and I have been riding for about 3 months now and today while riding my pedal broke. It was the original pedal that came on my Felt seven60. It appears to be a hard plastic petal and I was wondering what a better option would be for someone my weight?

    FWIW I've also been interested in replacement pedals (flat) and so you might find this thread interesting

    For your weight category, I'd look at some good downhill platform pedals. Scimano Saint platforms are about $60 on amazon, and hard to beat. There are other platform's of comparable quality with lower price ($30, Welgo), but the quality of the pedal isn't as high. They should still work OK for strength though.

    I'm 250 +/- only ride rigids ( looking at some hardtails) so they take a beating. Welgo B164 on main bike. nashbar verge on fat. free agent platforms on two others. all have held up well. the verge have been on three bikes. i like them the best
    Ride it like you HATE it!

    budget ? If you get Shimano Saints take the washers out from underneath the pins (more grip). deity compound is another popular pedal , budget friendly.

    If you have extra coin...
    DMR Vaults or Canfield Brothers Crampon Ultimate Pedals

    6'6" 260-270ish.

    Bought some Shimano Saints at beginning of this summer and have done quite a few miles and vertical feet and they're holding up and performing great. They look good too. Very happy with purchase.

    Those plastic pedals that come with the bike were never meant to be ridden beyond the parking lot. The posters have mentioned some good options. I personally have been beating a pair of saints for about 3 years now, still going strong.
