    Looking to get a set of thin lightweight platform pedals for the Chilcotin.
    Please post up photos and info of your favourite pedals and shoes!

    So far,
    HT AEO1 pedals are the thinnest that I know,
    Never ride one though,

    .:HT COMPONENTS:.

    Yes, these pedals are pretty and so far, pretty good. I've got two rides on them and will post a little more feedback after a ride tonight.

    Initial thoughts...I need to play with pin position a bit. Riding in 5.10 spitfires but will rock some Karvers tonight in the muddy conditions. The spitfires seem to ride on top of the pins just a hair initially- hopefully pin position will help this (note I had already skipped the one in the middle, as it seemed to protrude up a bit further because of the shape of the pedal). I might be interested in some shorter pins as well, for the spitfire shoes that have very thin soles. I noticed a click coming from one pedal after the last ride but haven't had a chance to analyze just yet...

    Otherwise, big platform, comfy, thin and very nicely made.

    And the new playa on the market might be these guys, they look well designed:
    Launch Components

    They look like a small platform, but apparently measures pretty large (100mm or so)...

    Are these the latest version of the crampons that we have been waiting for?

    These look like they would catch rocks and roots very easy, like riding with hooks on your pedals. But I'm sure they did some testing so maybe it's not a big issue.

    Another vote for the new Crampon Ultimates. These things are insanely thin and light. Mine were 342g I think with pins. Plenty of rides on mine and they are just flat out awesome.
    If jackasses could fly this place would be an airport.

    Nukeproof Electron.

    Been running them for a few months, hard to see myself going back to expensive pedals again. Cheap, light, good traction (running with 5.10s)

    Check out the Point 1 podiums and the Straightline AMP pedals.

    I have the Point 1s. No complaints at all. I have seen the AMP and they look like a great pedal.

    Be careful with the AMPs though, I've read quite a few times where they tend to unscrew themselves out of the crank. Don't ask me how that happens, but you might want to look into it before you buy.

    I put the VP Vice pedals on my chili. At $72, 380 grams, 105mm x 105mm x 17mm; I had to give them a try. Haven't been able to ride my chili yet, so no report on the pedals.

    I'm considering these, though I had read about problems with play along the shaft. Have you had any problems?

    Question to all running flats....Are you guys not climbing technical steeps? I wanted to like flats. I put some very sweet Deity Decoys on with Sam Hill 5.10's and LOVED it on the DH but the super techy climbs were not even in the same league as clipless.

    I ride'm on, all-mountain, on my D. Have been riding flats exclusively for the last year and a half (had been mixed before that, with a 6 year lead up on clipless pedals).

    I've got no problems stemming from using flats to climb the rocky/rooty hills here in austin tx. Very rarely do i loose a foot at the top of the pedal stroke.

    Honestly, the reason I moved over is that I don't think that my legs are made to pull up and "pedal circles" as much as I had gotten accustomed to. I think that legs are made to mash, and doing otherwise makes one prone to long-term problems. There was a slight adjustment period, but no problem.

    get them while they're hot:

    Thinnest pedal platform on the market. Never snag your pedal again!

    I have both versions and the newer ones are leagues better than V1. I ride flats for everything from grueling suffer-fest climbs to DH shuttle-fests. The biggest improvement is that the spindle is covered in the V2s. No more squeaky squeaky on the climbs. I also think the pin placement is better. It seems like a simple thing, but I think the small details like that are why the Canfield products are so awesome. Oh and the colours are sick too!

    very nice! yeah, they work better with the karvers, which have a similar sole to the freeriders, not the thin sole like the spitfires.

    dig those purple!

    also, i see you forewent the middle pin too...
