    i started with wellgo b124, and then gave the shimanos xtr pd-985 clipless a try and hated them. yes, great for climbing and i just didnt like them. then went to vp69 and they werent gripping enough. i went back to wellgo b124s. i love them, though they weight 376g. i am seriously considering the canfield brothers, crampon magnesium pedals at 282g

    Primo Tenderizer Bmx Pedals- wide platform, large pins, and bombproof enough to support this Clyde
    Puma Liga- Flat grippy sole and fairly inexpensive

    Pedals

    Our family stable is outfitted with Crank Bros. across the board - multiple Eggies, Candies, Acids and Mallets. We rode Shimano for years but I got fed up with constant maintenance and lousy mud performance. CB's only need occasional rebuilds and otherwise fire and forget.

    Shoes are Keen sandals if warm, Keen shoes if cool, and Lake boots if frigid.

    DMR V8s and Etnies Freights. Just because I can get away with it. I use the bike for commuting a fair amount so don't want to go down the route of SPDs.

    Since my post, I tried the Wellgo MG-1 and they were ok but thick as hell.
    Since then switched to VP 001's and like them a lit better. Better traction, lighter weight (not that I really care much about that) and about 50% thinner. Liked them enough that I when I got my single speed, I bought a set for it too.

    Didn't switch to skate style shoes though. I actually do fine with hiking shoes.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    I just had a set of MG1s come apart on me. The pedal slipped right off the spindle. I'm trying the Saints as a replacement. The mg-1 pedals only had a couple hundred miles on them and only a few pedal strikes. :S

    Re: Pedals

    A pair of Animal BMX pedals and annpd pair of Vans skate shoes. Why? Because the pedals came on the rig I just bought and the shoes were in a box saved from before we moved. I also have a couple pair of midline Shimano clipless kicks and a pair of Mallet Cs, but I haven't got around to putting them on yet.

    I ride in my vans when I forget my 510s. With the Crampons they grip just fine, but they flex like crazy and it hurts like hell when I whack my toe.

    been using the Straitline Defactos for a couple years now.
    I like em. Super grippy and massive. Im sure they're a little on the heavy side, oh well.

    Been riding SPD M540's for the last 6-7 years and they have been trouble free but I recently changed to flats a few weeks ago. Got some semi-generic ones from the LBS for $50, they have sealed bearings and replaceable pins. So far they have been fine but have only used them on the trail two times, otherwise its been around town use. Relearning how to ride without any sort of clip is strange because I've been riding with toe clips since the early 90's and clipless since 2000ish. Shoes make a difference with flats, my first trail ride was with some regular Teva shoes that look kind of like Chucks. I could feel pressure points on my feet so I snagged a pair of Teva Links for only $33 on Amazon and it made a big difference in how my feet felt for the second ride.

    I used to ride clipless, then switched to flats. My times improved and so did my climbs. My legs got stronger quicker on flats. Now I have two bikes. One bike has the canfield bros crampon magnesium, and the other has the cheap wellgo mg-1. If I had to do it all over again, I'd save the money on the crampon magnesium pedals and just get the wellgos. I can get like 6 pairs for the same price as one of the crampons. Yes the crampons are flatter and I don't hit rocks and roots as much, and yes they are a big bigger and lighter. But honestly after only three weeks of riding with the, the paint looked worn out and came off in places.... The pedals developed play and started leaking grease, and they developed an annoying creaking sound. I have had these pedals apart several times cleaning and regreasing ever since. Not my idea of what a $200 pedal should be. Have not had an issues with the wellgo mg-1's however. They can get beat up for all I care and fall apart. I'll just order another pair and still be way ahead of the crampons.

    PD-M520 on one bike, PD-M530 on the other one.

    Dirt cheap and they do what they're supposed to do.
    Ride more!

    I said they look stupid. I didn't say they don't work well. I've collected all of the info I need to make that statement, Mr. Faultylogic.

    Pearl Izumi/Bontrager/Sidi shoes (soon to add Louis Garneau Winter shoes) on eggbeater 3s. Wife is using Candy 3s.
    The most expensive bike in the world is still cheaper than the cheapest open heart surgery.
