    Twenty6 prerunner pedals feedback...

    Treated myself and bought Prerunner pedals.
    Because of my sprained ankle, I won't try them for at least 2 weeks. I read few reviews in consumer section, but would like to read your opinions. How are pins and cage holding? Did you 'loctite' pins? Thanks for your input in advance.

    Sticky, sticky, sticky! Just keep the pins off of the rox and you'll be fine.

    I love mine - so light and sticky. Get some extra pins though - the aluminum pins save weight but they will just grind off a lot easier than steel ones. The new ones are hollow, a bit taller, and not so sharp.

    Sick pedals - light, wide platform, sticky, thin. They do leave some nice pedal bite gashes in the calf though.

    Biggest problem is durability. The pins disintegrate on contact with rock, but can be easily replaced. The big problem is that the tabs that hold some of the pins snap off as well, so you can't put replacements back in. I'll run these until I kill them, but am ordering some Crampons for my next set.

    Twenty 6 pedals do have a problem with the pins and the tabs. That is why I skipped on them They are a work of art but I need more durability. I have ran Brooklyns for years first Shinburgers then Veggie Burgers. I bought the Canfeild Crampons when the first came out and I am super happy with them. I have not even bent a pin even riding in Phx Az, the land of rocks and boulders.

    Yeah, watch out for the outer pins getting hit and snapping the frame of the pedal.

    Yup my prerunner's pins are more than half gone, ordered new pins. Two of the pin holders cracked off as well. Do love these pedals though. I have cut shins and back of leg, but nothing too bad or any worse than other pedals. Not like Hutch Bear Traps! Also flipped bike onto me twice going over bars, and no injury from these.

    Nothing new from me either. I love the pedals, but they are subject to little dings that might not affect a burlier pedal. Chuky has knocked one of the pin mounts off her pedals and we both replace pins frequently from rock strikes.

    It's the race car of pedals. Light and fast, they require some shop time to keep them in racing tune.

    I'm rolling a set of Prerunners this year, so far, so good. Popped a couple pins, nothing special. No broken tabs or big chunks out of the pedals. Spent a week of resort riding in CO just recently, very rocky, no issues.

    Mine have been holding up great! I haven't had to use any loctite on the pins. Tylers customer service is the best I have ever experienced!!

    Loving mine:



    Yeah, that's my reflection. I've lost two pins cause I didn't locktite, and ripped one off. Threads came out, new pin in. They're thinner than other pedals I've ran so even with a really low BB (951) I haven't hit them much at all...

    Got new pins in today. The replacements I got were different - holes in the middle not like sharp nails.

    Nice iPhone pic at sundown tonight.



    I never got any real damage from these pedals, just tiny cuts like any pedals. My shins are hacked already in general from dead lifts and skateboarding.

    I have a set on my Nomad and V-10 and have been riding them both for the past 5+ months. The pins are definitely soft and will crush if you smack them on rocks, they will also shear off leaving the threads behind, and they will randomly fall out even if torqued pre-ride. The "solution" was to order a set of the new version pins which have a deeper broach so you can torque them better. Lock-tite is also key. The new pins crush just as easily but when they do they still offer grip over the old version which just grind down into a nub. The shearing off problem remains though.

    As for the pedal body, they have taken some decent hit and I've only managed to break one pin insert.

    The first pic below depict how the pins react to one rock hit. New version on left, old on right. The second pic shows the threads left behind after the pin sheared off. While the last pic shows the broken pin insert. These pics are all of my Nomad pedals.

    If you want it, you should wait until v2 comes out. The first batch can't take rock strikes. Here's my friend's after a couple of run at a well known local rocky trail. Not just the pin but the AL area around it shears off. Tyler says he is working on a new model that is supposed to be tougher.

    Well, it would certainly seem that there is dire need for a v2...(or less hacking! )

    that was my initial idea, but with the black forks, the black parts and the charcoal colored frame, wouldn't it get overly... well euh, black? (picture ain't mine btw, just one I found on the web)
    maybe urban camo is a good compromise...

    clipless just isn't for me, tried it, not a succes.
