    I assume we're talking all pedals not just clipless which seemed to be the dominant style pedal then.
    All the gear and no idea.

    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?

    i really like my 636's, they weigh half a ton, but I recently fished them out of a box when I put the 959's on the road bike...forgot how good they are, they were like 96-97.

    I've been looking for an excellent to NOS pair of 636's but they're seeming to be impossible to find.

    There we are. Sweet huh!? I reckon these puppies are from pretty early on in the CT history. I need to pull the axles out and hit the bearings with some grease but once I do, they'll be spinning like a top dudes!

    I can't wait to find a bike worthy of putting these on. Damn they make some quality sh*t.

    lovin' that pedal...thanks!


    OH...I was a weight weinie back then also...I just found at that point in time, Those SPD's were a better upgrade than a front suspension...I still try to push them on downhillers....they have a huge debate on the merits of flats to clipless...other than riding skinneys way up high...i prefer to use clipless for everything.

    I should come clean here folks. Those are NOT genuine Control Tech pedals, okay, NOT genuine. I have had several PMs asking to buy them from the many Control Tech aficionados on the forum and I'm deeply sorry for any confusion. The real CT ones were flouro pink of course.

    The only other crappy BMX pedals I had were in black but I didn't have a silver marker so the pink ones got the treatment.

    Thanks, it's all about details. I actually used one marker, a chisel point, but used it at two angles to recreate the much loved and esteemed CT logo. I have mad skills. I did stick my tongue out one side of my mouth in deep concentration though.

    Don't forget about the Scott Twin Cams. They are awesome and I haven't seen too many pairs around. They currently reside on my 91 Zaskar although they are originally from a 97 Schwinn S-20...I will ad a pic when I can get one.
