    bad andy, DU bushings are why I got rid of Atomlab's pedals. The DU bushings wear out prematurely in my experiences. They're just pieces of plastic essentially. You gotta pay the price for lightweight.

    you are right on the DU bearings, when you right a lot in dirt mud, they need very frequent cleaning/service . but you dont have to pay a premium for light weight, the pedals im selling are all light weight 3 beairngs, ive used them in a few DH trails , grips is very good.

    To all Shimano Saint users, could you check the height of the pins, from the pedal face to the top of the pin? This without the washers, if possible.
    Thanks in advance

    The pins don't all stick up exactly the same amount off the pedal surface, but 3-3.5mm is the range without washers.

    Thanks
    I thought they where longer without the washers.
    I'm using 10mm bolts with the SS Nanos (5mm height on the pedal), but now that I ride with Five Tens I'm thinking about go back to the stock 8mm bolts

    By the way, anybody thinks that having pins protruding as tal as 5mm might cause some kind of damage to the shoes soles or something like that?

    Something like that... I would be more worried about damage to shins and calves!

    The Saint pins are a bit different than most other pedal pins. They are normal sized screws at the pedal interface but the protruding part is necked down to a pretty small diameter. Those small diameter pins give pretty good traction but they seem to dig into the soles of shoes a lot more than other pins. My 5.10 soles are taking a beating.

    The Twenty6 pins are the same way - broad base with super-sharp points. They're stickier than any other pedal i've ridden, but shred your shoes.

    There were/are a number of pin types, as Tyler experiments with them fairly regularly. I think he did 3 kinds of pins for the Prerunners- spikes, volcanos and then the ribbed ones.

    I've had Ralleys, Prerunners and Predators, and my Impact soles have actually held up pretty well. The Predators are crazy grippy; jumping back and forth between them and the Prerunners on my other bike is eye-opening. Shin guards aren't a bad idea, either.

    I was surprised that the saints had so short pins, but my feet have still not slipped and I did not even remove the washers yet.

    I know EXACTLY whatcha mean. I had prerunners for a good long time and thought they were way grippy, but tore up skate shoes fast. Then I gotta set o' predators and was blown away with the additional amount of grip. Now that I run 5.10 stealth soles on the predators the grip is just about too much, IE it can be a bit difficult to reposition on a chunky run if you find your feet not quite where you want em' at the start of a run. But I love the confidence you get knowing you'll pretty much never lose a pedal. I think the smaller diameter at the points of the new tapered/ribber predator pins makes for a lot of the difference in grip.

    I've had my DMR V8's for over a year and never had a problem. I've caught them on tree roots and rocks and even my garden steps and they're still as quiet as the day they came out of the box, oh and they grip like sh!t to a stick. Poor man's V12 maybe, but for the money they're awsome!

    Just had my first ride on my Deity Compounds.

    For now I can only compare them to the garbage stock pedals on my bike, but they look great, are very light, and my foot didn't budge at any point. Huge improvement. Can't yet comment on durability.

    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! 2013 Shimano Saint

    Shimano Saint platform pedals vs Point One Racing Podium Platform Pedals:



    The Saint's came out of the box with the pins already installed. The pins use washers. Put anti sieze on the threads and installed. The spindles oozed some fresh grease during the first 20 miles of break in. The PD-MX80 Saint pedals are made in Malaysia. They're marked on box as 500g and symbols for DH and FR.

    My Point One's are in for service. The service for new bearings was almost the same price as the Saint's Guess I must really like the Point One's

    So far my favorite are Transition Step Down Pedals. Vert well built, durable, great feel on foot, tons of grip - and probaly the best pedal value out there.

    got a set of these last week in orange anodised: Torque Pedals (Thru pin) Moove MTB

    What I was looking for pins mount from behind rather than the top. Nicely polished, We will see how they go!

    one pedal ill never use again is the dark cycles arachnid, thing was just brutal, it hurt the feet.

    Most comfortable has been some old nc-17s and my dartmoor fever ones, the new generation, not much so much the older rebadged ones.

    Azonic Flat Iron Platform Pedals

    - The Shimano Saint pedals were good value and appearance. Until one of the pedals bearings went bad a week in use!

    - Point One Racing pedals came back from service with replaced spindles/bearings; yep, still think they're the best pedals on the market.

    New to hit the market by Azonic Flatiron pedals: 10mm thin, oversized outboard bearings with internal bushings. Photo attached (MTBR hosted):

    I'll report back after I have ridden them. It will be a bit, I'm nursing a sprained thumb.

    heres a review of the e13 lg1 pedals. i have them and can vouch for the amazing amount of grip. i am running the 7mm pins on the leading and trailing edges and the 4mm in the middle and with 5.10s...DAMNN. re positioning your foot takes some getting used to, otherwise they are the best ive used. my complaint is the same, the axles dont spin as freely as id like, hopefully the updated seal kit will be a big improvement.

    looking for new flats. I currently have a set of Kona jackshit pedals. I like the feel, but they are getting beat up and are really thick. One thing I was wondering is the feel of a few pedals, as I did not like the flat feeling of the crank bros 50/50.

    I am looking at either Saints (concave shape) or
    crampon ultimates (more flat to convex base, but pins may make up the shape/feel).

    Anyone have any time on these to compare? No one has them locally to give them a try for feel.

    The only objective comparison I can say is that Saints are less expensive and more readily available. I bought saints for those reasons.

    But I believe Canfield just received more in stock. So if you decide to go that route, I'd advise to you jump on it before they run out again.
