    Extended Pedals?

    Hi there!


    Been wondering if there's flat pedals that extend more than others?

    Currently using KORE and I feel like the pedal is too close to the crank. Looking for something that sticks out more.

    Your recommendations and advise is much appreciated.



    Thanks in advance.

    Hard to say without knowing what KORE model you're currently having problems with.

    Most platform pedals will be a standard width (they don't want them too wide for ground clearance when cornering).

    I use Odyssey Trail Mix and they are good for me. You can get them in either loose or sealed bearings and they come with replaceable pins.

    You could buy a set of Odyssey Twisted PC (plastic) as a cheap way to assess the Odyssey sizing.

    Wow! Thanks! Just what I'm looking for.

    wondering if it will stand up to normal abuse of a MTB in the long run? Anybody has long term experience with these?

    No expereince with those, but I used to ride with the Odyssey Tripple Trap pedal. They are a very wide pedal, actually wider than my foot so there is extra room to slide your foot and still be on the pedal. The problem that I found with these is that they would hit the ground frequently. So much that I have all but mangled the outside cage. They are still usable but the outside cage is very bent where it continously hits the ground. I switched to clipless Crank Brothers Candies and have not hit the ground once. Not to mention loving being clipless now.
