    If I had to chose just one it would it would be Canfields Crampon Ultimate. Assuming they are as good as the OG Crampons.

    Until now, it seems that CUs is the most popular option:

    - Point One Racing Podium: 1 point
    - Canfield Crampon Ultimate: 3 points
    - Spank Spike: 0 points

    By the way, what about the grip level of Point One Racing Podium? They have less pins than the other two options so I supose their grip will be worse...

    Are you agree with that?

    I've been riding eggbeaters for a while, but i didn't feel entirely comfortable attempting certain tricks clipped in. I do feel generally comfortable in them, but i do think that i have picked up bad body movement habits from relying on them for bunny hopping and other tricks.

    Now that i am looking to learn how to manual and other fun stuntz I have reviewed this entire thread. whew That out of the way i can say that it looks like any of those listed P1's, CCU, and SP sound pretty good. I am leaning toward the CCUs, but i don't have the money just yet. I did take a close look at the Flypaper pedals and i wish some of those were around, but what is available looks very good too.

    thanks to all the contributors to this thread. When i get some flat pedals i will report back to the forums with my views.

    Hello all!

    I've opened up a topic regarding flat pedals as I need some advice on this.
    My budget is at around 40$, so what would you recommend me? I've been looking over at Wellgo's as they seem to have the best bang for the buck options. V12 or MG1 seems to have pretty good reviews, but I can also see they have some CNC ones.

    I'm not doing any hardcore stuff with them, I just want a grippier pedal than my current stock ones and I don't like clipless. Please enlighten me. You can reply on my topic too to avoid confusion on this one: Help deciding which flat pedals for my MTB

    Thank you all in advance.

    This is not true. You have read that about the original Crampons, with the exposed spindle. The Crampon Ultimates are a different design and don't have that squeak.

    Perfect! Thank you for your clarification.

    Finally, I think I'll buy the CUs pedals.

    Been on the same Point One Podiums for a while, it'll be 3yrs in June and the grip with 5.10's is superb. They are in my opinion the best pedals out there, and I've had some of the others mentioned in this thread, including the DMR Vaults which I currently have on one of my bikes. The Vaults are pretty damn good as well but if had the coin at the time I would've gotten another pair of Podiums.

    Any bearing problems with the Podiums?

    How are the Vaults in terms of durability? Is the increased platform size noticeable from the Podiums?

    eurospek I have not had any issues with bearings on the Podiums, and as far as the Vaults I can't speak to the durability yet as I have only had them a month and been out on them twice due to weather. You do notice the size difference between the two pedals, I still prefer the feel of the Podiums though. Once the snow melts I'll give em' a proper critique.

    I posted this in the Shimano Saints pedal thread, too. I just got a pair after doing a bunch of reading and research. I've only been able to get out once with them so far as they are brand new, but my first impression was great. I took all of the washers off, so I'm running the pins in the "long" configuration. I wear 5-10 shoes, and the grip was great. I like the durable sounding design of the pedal -- a strong chromoly axle and real bearings in- and outboard (no outboard bushings). My only problem is that I'd like to have extra pins onhand when the time comes to replace one that gets broken. I can't find any info or a source online. Anyone have a source or advice?

    I've broken 2 pairs of the point 1 pedals and the CS has been the worst I've ever experienced.

    Just ordered the CU's, excited for the change.

    Let me guess, drive side pedal and the smallest bearings near end of axle?

    The CS experience is definitely a bit of luck trying to get someone to respond to you with them.

    Hello all once again!
    I've just found this deal: CarbonCycles.CC :: Components :: Products :: Pedals :: Alloy Flat Pedals, 10 Colours :: CC-PED07F What do you guys think? I can get them shipped to Portugal for 42 (55$). I was going for the MG1's as I'm looking for some good not-expensive flat pedals, but I've now seen these ones that are thinner...

    Can I get your opinion on these?

    Cheers!

    They sure do. Although 6cm smaller and 5g lighter. Considering they cost 140$, are these 52$ ones a good deal?

    It's a 6mm difference. Either they are a copy, or it's a transcription error.

    One way to tell- give them a shot and let us know
