    Recomend me some weenie flat pedals (XC)

    Trying to shed some weight on my motobeane fly 26" ti HT. Stock it comes in around 23lbs. I've already replaced the bars, stem, clamp, grips. Looking to get some pedals for it next.

    Not looking for something super expensive, I'd like to be in the $70 range tops for a flat pedal. I'm a lighter rider, 150lbs.

    I've read tons of stuff on flats, specifically the zillion page thread in the DH section, however none of these really gives the opinion from a weenie standpoint.

    The 4 I've seen that seem to fit the bill for what I want are the
    VP-001
    Xpedo XMX24
    Wellgo MG-1
    Wellgo M-111

    I'm heavily leaning towards the Xpedos, as they are much lighter than the other 2 options, however there are some ultra light weight pedals on ebay by a china company "Aest" While I would like to save as much weight as possible, I don't really care to comprise width or durability. The m-111 look "ok" but really arn't a flat im interested in because I don't think they will grip good enough.

    Are there any other flat pedals I should be looking at?

    Thanks

    I just ordered the AEST's at the top of the page from here:

    Exustar Pedals, KCNC Pedals, Platform and Road Pedals

    cheaper than ebay, and hopefully less than the 30days delivery my lights took coming from HongKong. I also got a personal note from the shop that they had packed and headed out the door within an hour of placing my order!


    Here's thread here about the AEST's quality.
