    Sick new pedals!! Tioga Monoblock!!

    Wow, alot of you have already seen these pedals because they are in the July decline mag. They are sick!! Just wanted to post this for people who haven't seen them yet. They are targeted towards street riders. http://tiogausa.com/monoblock.html
    There is the monoblock XL and the regular monoblock. I have one question though... the regular(smaller) uses "Sealed cartridge w/ Bushing." The XL (larger) uses "Cartridge and Needle Bearings." Whats better? Anyway, I'll leave a pic and the link is already above.

    Needle Bearings are super stiff.


    I'd go with the XL's..

    those pedals look like they totally suck. no concave, no centrally located pins. if trial an error experience has taught me anything, those pedals would have sh!tty grip despite their look. besides, they look like a jr high school shop project...........

    i'll stay with my Syncros Mentals. i like the concavity on mine. those look too flat. plus i question how nice they will look after being scratched up with that polished surface. but whatever, they're cool. target price?

    bushings can be great too. atom lab pedals are bushings and no bearings...i don't anticipate them being junk. i have not used mine yet so i cannot report.

    ever since i took my first look at those in decline....i have thought they look like they would suck....basically just a block of metal with pins sticking out. no concave....or shape what so ever. they are probably super heavy too. not for me but kind of cool. my tioga mx something or other pedals are awesome...just need to swap out the pins for the allen head type.

    those look like something out of a James Bond movie. It would have better use as a pencil holder than pedal.

    man i need a new set of flats for street riding cause right now i'm just risking it and jumping clipped in cause my pedals are sh*t. of course it's extra scary tweakin the bike out and hoping your foot will go back into your pedal.

    if these had some central grip on them i'd get em, but i think i'm going to have to look at the 50/50's cause i've always loved those... unless someone else has better ideas... and cheap is good for me! however not neccessary

    If you take all the pins out of one side they would grind like no other, of course they would look like complete **** after that but who cares.

    Can't you take any pedal that has removable pins and put longer pins in?

    Yes. Using longer pins towards the outside and shorter pins on the inside would give it a more concave feel.

    i feel like those pedals would suck big time. like if you got any sort of mud or anything on the bottom of your shoe, you'd be fvcked. they dont look like they'd be particularly good for any mountain application cause of that...they look tight as sh!t though but i'd only wanna rock them on like a cruiser or something.

    not to mention those are probably HEAVY

    BTW those 5050's suck grip wise, all my friends that own ---> sell

    specialized lo pro mag 2's are pretty much the shiz

    expensive but concave with replacable and well spaced pins, round(not wrench shaped) pedal interface for rigidity, very light, super low profile and 2 cartridge bearings + 1needle bearing + 1 bushing in each pedal. noice.

    avoid the original version tho (lo pro mags, new version == lo pro mag 2's), hard to install, bad bearings, and develop play quickly due to screwed up C-clip.
    170mm profile crankset, silver king headset barely used, new blackspire chainguide, old version hope mini brakes---- all for sale at i-wanna-get-rid-of-it prices. I'm gone all of july after the 10th, other than that PM me if interested.
