    What flat pedals you got on your Knollys?

    Its time for new pedals, my trusty old DMRs are starting to rattle a bit after a wholly respectable 2.5 years of abuse.

    What pedals have you got folks? What pedals do you rate?

    Looking for a mid priced pair of flats, was thinking about trying these:

    I'm using Nukeproofs at the moment which are very similar to the Superstars. If I was going to change then I would get the Syntace Titan pedals in size large.

    Syntace NumberNine Titan Pedals large

    For a mid price option I would consider the Brendog Vault from DMR.

    Not mid-priced but I have three pairs of Canfield Crampons that have never let me down.

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

    Have Canfield crampons and Point One Podiums - I prefer the podiums but both are superb.

    +3 for the Canfield Crampon Ultimates. I like'm so much that I switch them between the bikes I'm riding because I don't want to ride anything else (despite having 2 other pair of pedals).

    HT AE01s on the Podium, but only because the AE03s weren't available yet when I built it. Got AE03s on the Chili and I'll be putting them on the Podium too when I wear out the AE01s.

    Deity compounds with custom long pins. I can't believe the compounds don't receive more attention. They are so cheap! The compound material just glides across rocks rather than digging in like a metal pedal.

    I've been running these pedals on my DT then on my Delirium for 4 years through every type of weather and they still spin as smooth as the day I bought them. And I haven't put one second of care or maintenance into them.
    Sweet pedals!

    Straitlines. They are a really good pedal. Reliable, great grip, great size. Used them exclusively on my intense ss. However on the chilcotin i'm finding that i'm getting a lot of pedal strikes. I'll be looking to get a thinner pair soon. From the posts above maybe the point1 or crampons. Mate of mine has a pair of spanks on his delirium and loves them.

    Agreed--that's what I was using on both the DT and the Shinobi. They are solid pedals and well priced. I'm getting a set for the Chilcotin too!

    Chromag Scarabs on my Podium. They are super and pretty big while low profile enough with the right amount of concave shape.

    I've also been doing a lot of riding lately on a Chilcotin on the Hope F20 pedal. Also a super sexy offering lots of grip.

    I have a set of brand new saint pedals sitting in a box but because of the two above pedals are so great, I haven't had to switch.

    Been riding those superstar ones for a year or so now on my delirium, really good wide, grippy pedals and have already outlasted my old straitlines and have no play in the bearings yet

    sorry to leave off the canfields, point ones and HTs from the table above...couldnt find anybody selling them here...so had no price.

    shame about the HTs availablity here, they were a very nice find...


    im tempted by the Superstar ULTRA Mag CNC Pedals...im aware that some believe magnesium is a bit soft for pedals, anybody got anything on this? do you think they will be durable?

    chris,,,,,
    i have been running the wellago magnesium pedals for years, (since 09 when i built up the dt) never had any troubble with them, and i have put them through hell, lots of rock strikes, casing jumps, huck to flat, they always held up, all my bikes apart from the endo run them,
    lots of people have told me im brave running them specially the wellago ones, ive heard all the horror stories, but as i said from personal experiance i have had no issues, but im a pretty light rider, 10 stone, 64kg,

    as for the reflectors lol,,, i would say it depends on your hair coour,,, if your a ginge then go with the reflectors so you will be colour co-ordinated ha ha ha if not then remove them lol.... to be honest i never got reflectors with any of the sets i have,

    Been very happy with my Point1 Podium pedals. Running them for a couple years now. The bearing blew out on one of them and they replaced it no questions asked.

    Had the Spank Spike but the bearings died after 4 months of muddy riding this past winter in the Pacific Northwest.

    Currently riding the Chromag Scarab and couldn't be happier!

    I have Deity Compounds on my Chili and they are fantastic for what they are - cheap, super light, super thin, and have proven totally durable for me (over a year of north shore abuse). Only place they lack in is stiffness - I do notice their flex when riding more DH style stuff. I have Chromag Scarabs on my DH bike and they are super comfortable and stiff. For heavier hitting stuff I'd take the 100g penalty and run Scarabs.

    Has anyone tried the new Hope F20 flats? They look really nice, I'd love to try a set, but damn they are pricey.

    reset racing do fantastic products. might be unkown but what they offer isn't behind chris king etc. i have a bb and headset of rr and am more than happy with it. especially the choice on different headsets is awsome. you can combine anything you can imagine.
    the pedals are a bit over the top in terms of price but if you see the work behind it, you might get an idea of the high tech they put into their products.
