    Onza was the clear winner of the era... quality elastomer goodness.

    I assume we're talking all pedals not just clipless which seemed to be the dominant style pedal then.

    got a picture of a set? never heard of them making pedals. I might agree with the diet Coke comment too if they did make pedals.

    WTB - I have a pair, but sadly no cleats. SPD's were supposed to work, but do not.

    Really? What search term did you use? This feels like a fishing expedition to me but eventually you will find all the parts for your bike. You should not rest until you get those control tech pedals. Icing on the cake.

    Everybody made pedals then. Try the mombat timeline.

    What do they look like?
    Most (all?) WTB clipless pedals were made by Wellgo and should work with SPD cleats. I have a pair in the household that does. FWIW the "road" spd cleats work better that the mtb ones although they're interchangable.

    Hutch bear trap and double ring, kkt, shimano dx and xt, onza bear trap and double ring.
    Lotsa guys rode the grippiest bmx pedals they could find and bear traps were abound.

    although mud has always been somewhat of an issue with SPD's, I'm on my 3rd set from 1991....they always worked great and I still have the older 2 sets, one gets used on a commuter still (2nd gen pedals). They never needed servicing either. I've heard horro stories form some of the LBS's, but I never had one issue (im light and try to be smooth). So whats the prob with them? and better yet, what did you actually use (for clipless, cause flats are...flats...no comparison).

    The biggest problem with SPDs back then was the weight. For a weight weenie like me, they were boat anchors.
    Onza H.O. Ti and Grafton SpeedTraps were my favorites and I still have some.
    I also now have some original SPDs but their weight gain compared to mine is insignificant

    I am fishing. I am on Mombat too. I figured I'd ask the resident experts here for more ideas. Do you have an idea?
