    Anyone bought SYUN-LP pedals ?

    Looking for some bigger pedals and I liked the HT EVO pedals but they're out of my price range for the moment.
    However I found SYUN-LP pedals on ali and ebay and they seem to copy designs from HT, VP, and others.

    I like the deign of this one, but no clue if I would be wasting my oney.

    Hi there. I have also purchased these pedals. They are quite large 9cm x 10cm, carry many pins that are interchangeable, weighing 320 grams and the price 22 euros.
    I think they are the best around "price weight and dimensions"

    I ordered a set of SYUN-LP 5700 series pedals a couple years ago. All seemed fine until yesterday when one of the axles snapped off. Fortunately, it was not under heavy load at the time - but what the break revealed was interesting: The Cro-Mo "Steel" axle turned out to be some sort of sheath (plated copper?) around a pot-metal core.

    I'm following up now to find out whether these were counterfeit parts or the product of deceptive advertising and bad design - but in the meantime, here's a picture of the broken pieces so you can draw your own conclusions. You'll note the piece on the right has a copper color that was exposed when I used a Vise-grip to remove the piece from the crank arm and it scraped off a bit of the plating.

    BTW, my bike is over 45 years old and in that period, no other part has had such a short service life except consumables (tires, inner tubes). Based on my experience I would say DO NOT BUY! These are DANGEROUS. I shudder to think what might have happened if the axle had broken at speed when I was bearing down hard on it. If all Syun-LP products are this bad, the sooner they go out of business, the better.

    Anything out of China is "buyer beware".

    For the price of those pedals, I'd go with a Wellgo MG-5 from a reputable dealer or website. But that's just me.
