    Still satisfied with my point one podiums that I purchased in June 2010, they're just great.

    Have you had the bearings replaced yet?

    I bought my pair of Podiums in August 2010. The platforms have taken some hits and look pretty beat up, but I haven't had one problem with the bearings. They spin a little easier after 2+ years, that's the only difference. Love those pedals. That's why I just bought a spare set - if the originals ever do blow out, I wouldn't want to be without them while I wait to fix them.

    i like the ns aerial pedals. i have the loose ball just because i hate spending $120 on a pedal i end up regretting on buying. i was also happy with the atomlab gi pedals as it took a ford f250 to break them (literally).

    I already have a tendency to hit my chain stays with my heel, does anyone with the Staightline AMP have issues. Was thinking about getting them but since they sit closer to the crank I think it would be problematic for me.

    I am a big hope fan and really am tempted on the F20's

    Picked up a set of crampon ultimates for my anthem x29 and have to say I am extremely impressed, not only with the pedal but with the customer service from the Canfield bros. Cannot recommend them highly enough!

    Thanks guys!

    i dont see any problem there. they are the best pedal to have on your bike that all it does is sit on the trainer. think about jumping off a curb breaks those.

    buy some odyssey or some animal pc pedals. $20 and they do last. i have a pair of Hamiltons that has been to hell and back and they are going back on my park bike

    Okay, I just bought a set of the Crampon Ultimates. I emailed them with a couple questions and 20min later I had a response from Sean... and it's Sunday. Cant beat customer service like that!

    Cant wait to get some rides before the snow comes with these bad boys. I'll post my impressions soon

    Maybe someone can answer this for me, I just got my old pair of Point1 Podiums back from Point1 from a warranty rebuild BUT they aren't too stiff to turn like when they were brand new. I ended up buying another raw pair from CRC, and those are much stiffer to turn, just the same as these were when they were brand new also. Shouldn't my old ones that I got back today also be stiff to turn easily with new bearings and rubber seals? What am I missing here?

    Are all seals in place on the rebuilt ones?
    If yes, do they look different from those on CRC pair?
    Is axial play detectable on the rebuilt pair?


    That was off the top of my head, I have not held Podiums in my hands and may be missing the po1nt.

    All there, no difference between the two at all. There's a seal in the pedal body along with a seal on the axle itself. Nothing's missing. Opened them both up. I have a feeling I was only replaced the broken bearing, not a full rebuild.

    So it may be the worn (or just broken in) seals that don't drag as much as new ones, then.

    I am looking at these for my bike. I am looking for something comparable to my DMR Vaults and these lookg to be BIG pedals. Do you have a pic?

    Crampons on the DH rig and Spanks on the AM - extremely pleased with both of them, but the Canfield's are a freeking work of art in a class by themselves IMO.

    Hi,
    Why should I think about replacing the standard pedals that's come with my Cube LTD Pro 2012?
    I got some V8 pedals as well with the deal but I have not installed them. I'm thinking the standard pedals are lighter (altho look smaller)

    Do I need more surface contact to be more efficient or comfort or something?
    Sorry I'm new and this bike is my first proper mountain bike

    I've just installed another pair of AMPs, with chromoly spindles, on my Spank Spoon one2one. Also used Superstar aluminum pins in an attempt to reduce sole wear. Installed with Locitie 222 (the weakest), pedal washers (cranks are Truvativ AKA) and black (thin) axial preload washers.


    Muscleflex,
    looks like stock pedals on Cube LTD Pro 2012 are just placeholders, typical narrow caged jobbies. You are expected to only use them for test fitting and parking lot test ride.

    However a surprising amount of first-time MTBers leave those pedals for extended amounts of time, years in some cases. I have to confess that I rode them for 5 weeks on my first MTB before going clipless (used clipless for some 3 years, then acquired a taste for real flats. Still prefer platforms on the small side of spectrum though, so that there is only one distinctly correct and easily felt foot placement, not unlike clipless).

    Most new model flat pedals should be big enough, the amount (and size) of pins in the pedal will determine how sticky your foot will be when riding. Not everyone likes too much stick because it makes slight foot adjustments too hard without having to lift your foot while others don't want any movement unless they lift their foot so you will see pin #s from 6 to 16.

    Personally I like a lot of stick so go for flats with 10+ pins but it's a matter of preference. Remember you can always take pins out but can't add any more than what they came with.

    This has become the whoever-has-the-thinnest-pedal-has-the-best-pedal thread. You want to the best pedal with the most grip? E13 lg1. You want more grip? Install the 7mm pins included in the box. Best part, when they look trashed you can get the replacement composite covers and BAM brand new pedals. Igus bushings, thin by yesterday's standards. There is none better. /thread

    Good job! Platform Pedals trending towards thinner platforms. QR option...

    csermonet: The trend is to make a pedal thinner but just as strong. The trend is the same with bikes in terms of lightness. There's always a compromise (tiny platforms = tiny bearings -or- replace bearings with DU bushings which wear out fast). The problem with the e13 pedals is their butt-ugly and look like plastic. Plastic pedals are popular in BMX, inexpensive, and are typically replaced quite often. The e13 pedals do not have "replace often" pricing, thus I've never been interested in e13's pedal offerings.

    Who's tried these pedals by Xpedo "Traverse 5 QRD" - they're quick release and light but there isn't much "platform". I was always curious about the pressure points these kinds of pedals create - not the lack of grip - like track pedals for the street with the "quill" style that put a lot of pressure onto two ridges on your shoe sole - e.g. foot cramping. 300g, $80 usd.

    p.s. Did White Industries release a QR style crankset recently that allows switching from clipless to platform pedals.

    Those QR pedals are mostly intended for folding bikes I think. Non-folding city bikes too can benefit: if you leave it U-locked in the street and take pedals with you, it's less attractive for thieves.

    I ended up getting a set of Canfield crampon ultimates.
    They were great on my week in Moab. I swapped in the shorter pins but did not put lock-tite on them and ended up loosing most of them in the first 3 days.
    even with low pin count traction was fine. I now have a mix of the long and short pins until I go source replacements of a more reasonable length.

    but comfortable and great traction, never slipped a pedal all week. This was with skate shoes and not something with super sticky rubber as well. Glad I got them, now I see another set for my wife's bike in the future.

    The e13's are aluminum, they only have composite outer plates, which are quite tough in mine and pinkbikes experiences. If they are damaged and need to be replaced, it's less than 30 bucks. Not a drop in the bucket I suppose, but definitely not expensive. If you have a chance to try some you wouldn't buy another pedal.

    HT AE01s are now on ebay for about $100 shipped. I received mine a couple days ago, and they look very nice. I probably won't be riding again until April or May though, so I can't give them a proper review until then.

    I've had a few sets of them. I used to ride them as a cheap pedal when I knew I was gonna thrash my pedals. They hold up really well in rocks but you pay for it in weight.

    One of the few pedals out there that manages to be expensive, heavy AND weak. Ask my friend, this one snapped on a small jump. He ate it pretty hard.

    Wonder about any crank bros products. My friend swears by them, but breaks spokes all the time on the CB wheels. I've seen the Cronolog stuck in the all-the -way-up- unridable position on the trail (poor guy! we were miles from the trailhead) I hear they have great customer service though.
    As far as flats, I like my Ezra's. Two reasons : Light/Affordable

    I just got the ultimates and while they provide excellent grip they feel small compared to my vaults. I've only had one ride on them and hopefully they grow on me.

    This pedal is not for bikers with OCD.

    They will try to line up all the square pins.

    What is that black piece in the middle of that Speshy pedal?

    I like the amount of pin options on that NumberNine pedal, but the body shape with flared tips and lack of leading edge angle is not good for rock strikes. All pedals are going to take their share of strikes, but a shape like that is more likely to catch a rock rather than just take a blow and glance off it like these Spanks. Awesome All-Mountain pedals and still rock solid after numerous rock encounters. Only off the fun bike because a long XC ride over the weekend (yes time for new pins).

    As I recall, first generation of Syntance Number Nine pedals had forged bodies. The one above looks machined (maybe post-forging machined). But I'm not a fan of that shape either.

    trojans1993,
    those pins look like they can handle some more (that is, I'd leave them be).

    have to agree on the flanges and the leading edges on Syntace pedals - although that really doesn't have to be that big of a problem, really.
    still - below 290 g mark, even with this shape and so much pins is just incredible.

    three sizes and lightweight design tickled my imagination and am thinking what would they weight with the shape of.. let's say HT AE03's... Syntace has 15.4 mm in height and HT is only 11 mm, and HT's are 350 g. Syntace would than weight probably around lightest magnesium HT's which are around 220 g.

    hope Syntace will see things the way I am and start making pedals like that.

    trojans 1993, that looks like a cover, or maybe even the retaining device for the end of the axle.
    It would be a way to keep the squeaking from happening, like some have found in other pedals.

    Anyone know?

    Kronk,
    this article may shed some light on it.

    The patent pending part is the needle bearing sleeve. Held in place by two pins (one from either side), it serves as both part of the pedalís platform and the outer body of the bearings. It holds two sets of needle bearings, and the spindle slides into it. This allows them to keep the platform thinner without compromising strength. The center section of the flats is just 10mm thick, ramping to about 15mm at the ends.


    Although I don't get the part about 2 sets of needle bearings..
