    Speedplay Drillium pedals: Anyone?

    I am looking for some new pedals and like what these have to offer. They have a nice bearing setup and an external grease port for easy lubing. Im curious if anyone else has has the chance to use them and what were your thoughts.

    Here they are.

    I looked at those and almost bought them new, at a bike show for about 50 bux....they have a really nice big wide platform area, good pin distribution, and nice spinning bearings, but they are actually kinda heavy when you compare them to a Tioga MX Pro [pretty much the best platform ever made!]....which I ended up buying for my second pair of pedals [to go along with my origional set of mx pros....] The grease port is somewhat superflous, since it's no big deal to pull the end nut and jam in some fresh grease once a year.....

    and, don't even think of buying the Crank Bros. 5050 pedals...they look great but the sux azz....I put them on my drunk nite bar cruiser.....

    most riders will agree, the tioga is the shiznit!

    Do you mean the Crank Bros. 50/50s? I have heard mixed reviews on those as well....

    My fav. platforms are the Shimano DX and the Specialized LoPros.


    Specialized makes better parts and tires than bikes...

    I wanted platforms last year but knew nothing about what makes a good one. I emailed Larry and asked for a good quality pair that were reasonably priced. He sent me the Tioga MX Pro's.
    I got some bad ideas in my head.

    those Drilliums are really nice pedals, and you would be very happy with them....I just think the tioga is a better pedal for pretty much the same cash....either way, you'll be happy.

    Those pins look a heck of a lot like my Azonic A-frame pins. So what are the pins called in Ace hardware lingo? I need to get some replacements.

    I think the main aspects that these pedals share is the concave surface and the sharp, screw in pins. These features make them grip really well. But before the pins die a brutal nasty death, they like to maul any exposed flesh on your leg.
