    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 still like my Flybikes (metal) Ruben pedals even though they're not the flattest or widest.

    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.

    Has anybody tried the Transition Stepdown pedals?
    Are they worth it?

    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.

    Lack of pedals = easier to fit in the back of the thieves' van

    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.

    I want to review the Crampon pedals (either the classic and/or the Ultimate) for this Platform Pedal Shootout thread. I have a set of SAINT pedals to trade, even. Holler.

    Does anyone have any info on when these Specialized flats will be available?

    Or have they become vaporware?

    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..
