    Welcome!! I use Wellgo Mg1 I'm sure they're not the best but very reasonable fairly light and get the job done. You can find em on Ebay for around $40.

    Damn, beat me to it! Light, good sized, and haven't broken one yet. Smash mine plenty on the rocks too.
    They will hamburger your shins if you aren't careful.

    I have DMR V8's but would recommend the V12 version with sealed bearings.

    Paired with some Teva Links = good to go.

    Fyxation Mesa! Cheap, colorful, and plastic. Plastic seems to be better at blocking the cold from pedal to boot in the winter.

    Clipless. But for winter I'll go with some white flat pedals. Won't matter terribly what kind.

    You're turning black metallic.

    If cost, cold, grip and ground clearance are an issue then the super thin plastic Ezra Flats pedals are great! Less than half the price of the Fyxation Mesa pedals. But I should caveat that I only have 200 miles on mine thus far.

    $25 for all plastic and $33 for replaceable pins/screws.

    Those point ones are sexy, wow. Hate to smash a $150 pedal up tho!
    Just measured my cheap ass Wellgos:
    95mm front to back.
    100mm max pedal width, in the middle along axle shaft.
    24mm thick at the tallest.

    Have a set of the DMR V8, with my chunky 5-10's they needed to be a little wider. I blew up a set of bearings on those but DMR was pretty cool and sent me a free replacement set. Point to them. I'd probably go with the V12 and sealed bearings if I did those again.

    Last set of mg-1's the golden color was on sale so I figured that'd match my Muks' hubs. Err, more of a "mustard" color. Oh well.

    Liking the 'HT Evo Pedals [AE02]' they have a really slim profile like the Point1's don't think I would get MG-1's after using these.
    The MG1's are pretty bullet proof tho certainly not in a hurry to take them off the beater.

    NSbikes Aerial pro - nice lightweight, large, cheap

    Reset Racing Pedal3 - Nice platform, light and extremely good looking bling (not cheap though )


    Both just stick to my Teva and 5Ten shoes like glue

    Riding the same pair of Kona Wah-Wah pedals on my fat, full suspension and touring bike for two years now. Very pleased with the grip and the great condition they are still in.

    B-37s are a step up from the MG1

    larger surface area, better chance of getting good grip when they ice up

    Wellgo MG1's are a good pedal for the price. I have them on my hard tail and like them.
    However, I also have the VP-001'a on my full squish. They were't much more and win hands down. Thinner, lighter, more pins, more durable and more traction.

    The magnesium in the Wellgo's also don't hold up to well to pedal strikes. I have not broke mine yet but there have been some complaints from others. I did however, break a pin out.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.
