    Possible for decent lo pro pedal under 60?

    I am wanting to trade out my cheap pedals on my bike and trying to find a decent set of lo pro flat pedals in blue. I have been looking on ebay and online retailers, but most decent pedals are over 100.00. Vp has a model vp-001 which can be had in the 45.00 range but not sure of quality. I wont be doing anything crazy, just some minor xc to get into shape so I can buy the bike I really want.

    I'm not sure how lo pro you want, but these were thinner than my stock pedals. I like them so far.

    Spend the extra cash or get the Vice from them.

Given it was used in Super D and DH race the way the 001 is set up the outer edge looks to be a weakness with that design. Not saying stay completely away from it; just this caused myself to go for the Vice instead as well.

    Thanks. I have read that prior to posting. Vice is a bit out of my price range right now and that is why i was looking at 001. Anyone have any experience with hti ax01?

    Look at BMX pedals. They might not be as lo pro as some of the other options out there, but I know that you can get some very nice pedals from Black Label for the amount of coin you're looking at.

    Black Label Alloy Gas Pedals - Seats & Pedals - Black Label BMX - Components -Trek Store

    You should be able to get them at your local Trek store.
