    The Kona Jack-Chit's with the true 14mm axle was extremely durable. I'm not sure they make it with the all 14mm anymore as it was a little bit expensive. Because of the axle, they were a little thick but as thin as possible with the big axle.

    The uber-thin Atomic ones are very nice if you like thinnies. Mike is a cool guy too...

    Straitline pedals blow all the other pedals out of the water! 26 pedals are also good as well as Dark cycles arachnid pedals and Syncros mental mags. Have Fun!

    which pedals are you using? how long have you been running them? what type of riding do you mostly do?

    I'm happy with my Block 8 Cage Match Magnesium. They've taken a lot of rock strikes. But maybe if they were thinner they would've taken a few less.

    i had the lo pro mag 2 and they were great but after a month the bearing fell apart,the kona wah wah are also a good pedal but to be honest get beaten by the jack ****.

    v8 and shimano dx are good also but the quality is rubbish on the v8,and the downside to v8 and the dx is there size.

    now im running easton flatboys and they are great,not a lot of money 55 with a nice platform and plenty of grip with a nice concave.

    Sounds like you were unlucky as I've got 2 pairs (9 months and 4 months old) which are both as good as new, despite being bashed and regularly coated in mud/clay.

    Dude, Gigabyte why don't you just do a search? You've posted the same question before... even once in the dh forums as well. By my count you've made 3 posts for the same thing in a pretty close timespan, Did you not get enough opinion's the first two times around?

    Maybe he has somekind of pedal fetish??

    Syncros SS mental.

    I also like CC 50/50 but they the quarks.. 50% cheaper than ss mentals though.
