    New question here. Wide platform pedals?

    I'm looking for a wide platform pedal for my around town errand bike. I've read the reviews and checked mail order web sites but the pic's aren't great. Speedplay "Drilliums" seem wide from the reviews. Any others I should consider?
    Thanks,

    Sun-Ringle ZuZus are a classic wide-bodied pedal.

    They are also considerably less expensive if they will be used on an errand-type bike.

    New question here. platforms

    hands down the best platform pedals on the market are the low pro mags by specialized. completely bombproof awesome bearings the best pin placement and they're really light. but if theyre not in the budget at $79 the check out the redline sealed bearing pedals at $42 for a decent platform pedal.

    Straitline pedals are also worth a look - wide surface, low profiel, and very grippy. They are on the expensive side though.

    +1 for Odessey. I also run some cheap wellgos on my commuter with plastic clips so my boots fit.

    Kona Wah Wah

    The Odyssey Jim Cielencki Pedals are sweet. I rode them until about 2 months ago when I switched to the Kona Wah Wah's. the Kona's are just as wide, just as strong, and... way lighter and grippier!

    I'm all about the Crank Brothers 50/50 you can find them pretty cheap (approx $20.00) if you look around. They are light, super wide and grippy you generally don't get all 3...

    I'd like to know where I can find the Crank Bros. 50/50 for $20. Everything I see is around $50.
    Thanks.

    I just got my Transitions and they seem great. Their stuff seems to be designed well, doesn't break the bank and doesn't break. They have sealed bearings that make for lower profile and nothing to maintain like some pedals. I like my lighter MG-1s but they're more expensive.

    They're a good company to deal with and I suggest looking at their videos and photos where you might conclude that you have to know what's good if you can ride like that.

    Wellgo B-67 are the widest I've found yet, $39.98 from Pricepoint. I've been using them for four years, great pedals.
