    My trusty micrometer shows 17mm at the thickest part (outer edge) and 15.5 near the spindle.

    Not too thick and not too thin. They're just right.

    I had the 420's- they were okay but didn't hold up too long. Bought some Answer Roves and love 'em. No crushed pins yet!

    Thinness and weight is great but I just don't like the platform itself. Just too narrow for me. It's a long pedal fore and aft wise just not wide enough. I have lots of shoe still hanging off of those pedals. I do have a hard time finding pedals only cause my feet/shoes just seem to be too wide for most pedals out there. Oh and I only where a size 12 shoe.

    They're wider than what he is riding right now. Anything else is going to be over $100.

    I'm not ure about the Azonic 420s but I love my new Deity pedals... I got the aluminium ones and are pretty light and strong but the magnesium ones are lighter, not sure about the strength though. One good thing about the magnesiums is that they have a through hole design... so you can use regular screws for a stronger pin approach.

    Sounds like a good woman! Now Dog prefers the classic thunderwookie but that's for a separate thread all together.

    I'm really looking at the Deity Decot LT. It's what I want and have just failed to go over to Rage and buy them. Pedals are the last item for the Enduro.

    I too find the Azonic 420s to be too narrow. My wider Twenty6 pedals are now down for pin replacement so I put back on the 420s. I just don't feel stable at all on them. A wider platform would have been nice for my first ever go at the Holbert baby drop today. whoohooo!

    The platform on the 420's isn't too bad but I do prefer a bit more width. I have mine on the DJ and they've worked out fine on that bike. I also have a set of the VP pedals which are pretty damn thin. They work OK but aren't all that durable (I've ripped a couple of pins out already).
    BTW; Got my brace unlocked today so I can actually walk somewhat normal

    Had my eye on these but they are hard to come by. They just started to stock qbp/bti and the likes. But for as thin as they are, their quite heavy. I'd rather wait for the new thinner version of the straitlines which I hope to be seeing this interbike.

    Alright, that's enough outta you. You could've made that drop with no pedals from the looks of it. I'm embarrassed I didn't give it a try...

    Decoy's are damn nice and they're available in a few different versions depending on your budget. Hard to go wrong there...I have a set of those as well and love them.

    Any feedback on the durability of the nylon fiber Decoys?

    Again thats why I like my Rove's. Size 13 wide and there's not much hanging off the edge of the pedals!

    I have the VP-59's. The 007's look to be a bit stouter. Assuming they run on the same spindle design they should work fine. I don't know of anyone who's running the nylon Deity's yet. I kinda thought about them but I have a feeling I'd just rip the pins out...

    I would go with the Decoy LT.

    Let's talk pins and removing/replacing...

    I'm looking through some here and there and there appear to be at least 3 distinct styles.

    1. hex screw from top
    2. nut screw from top
    3. hex screw from bottom

    Seems to me that the hex screw from bottom would be best but I don't know. I was looking at the Decoy's and they appear to be hex screw from top which seems to me would be damn near impossible to get out once they get banged up.

    Am I worrying about nothing?

    No worries. Stay home with your foot up. Have Kavu bring you drinks with an umbrella in them.

    Pins that thread in from the bottom tend to hold up much better in my experience. I have a set of Premium Slim's that are like this and the pins have lasted longer than any other set I've tried.The set screw style that you'll see on so many pedals is very prone to having the allen head mangled after a single good hit.

    BTW, I'm running the Decoys on my pedal bike and don't think I will go back to a set screw design ever again. The pins toast quickly and in many cases are irreplaceable because of the amount of damage incurred.

    Define "set screw design" 'cause I'd be tempted to call them all set screws. Is that the type that goes in from the top with an hex wrench?

    It's the type of screw that is the same diameter throughout the length of the screw. And yes they use an Allen wrench to install from the top, vs a standard Allen Bolt, which generally would need to be threaded from the underside.

    Great reviews here on MTBR

    Great reviews at Universal Cycles

    Fair reviews at Bike Radar

    They've got those bolt-nut-hybrid pins which I imagine will be easier to replace than just the plain set screw. So, another pin question: if the plain set screws are 4-5mm tall and these hybrid pins are the same but the bottom half of them is the bolt which probably offers little in the way of grip are you almost defeating the purpose of the pins by having that big nut at the base of the screw?

    OK, between these two at the price point I feel comfortable spending...

    Blackspire Sub 4

    Azonic 420

    Blackspires are a little lighter but I'm certain it won't make any difference to me. They do have ALL of their pins screwed in from the back side which I think is a good bonus.

    Other than the pins it seems pretty much to be a crap shoot. Any last minute advice?

    Mike, these are the HT's I have. They ARE the same pedal as the Diety Decoy. HT actually makes them for Diety. The pins aren't removable from the reverse side but I bought a lifetime supply of pins for $4. They've been flawless for a year and a half now. Can't beat the price in my opinion.

    Hey they have black in stock again. Still like my Podiums. Even if they took a bite before ever hitting the dirt.

    They are definitely grippy. The stock pins are 7mm long and I just replaced them with 8mm from mcmaster carr and no slippy for sure

    Yep, and they'll be sold out in no time. This seller never learns. He only gets them in small quantities and sells out fast.

    I don't NEED them. I just think it's a better design.

    Well, they have one less in stock now. Purchased. I figure a pair of Diety knock offs for $50? That's a good start on going back to platforms...

    Do you have a link to where you bought the pins or at least the size you bought? I've got a half dozen missing already...

    I think you mentioned McMaster & Carr but I'm not positive of the size needed.

    Thanks!

    I had the same problem so when I installed the new ones I put a dab of blue loctite on each one. Haven't lost one yet

    Choose "Metric Cup Point Set Screws" in the upper right. You need M4 x .7mm pitch, 8mm in length. They come in a bag of 100 for $4.31, item number 91390A113

    I've got 420s, Premiums, and Wah Wahs. I'd rank them in that order (Wah Wahs being the best).

    The 420s and Premiums use 4mm pins, the Wah Wahs have 3mm pins. The 3mm pins definitely dig into 510s better, making climbing over obstacles noticeably easier.

    I've got high bottom brackets on all my bikes so all three pedals have held up fine (even tho I'm a bit of a hack rider).

    I've recently removed the 4mm pins out of the 420s and Premiums and have redrilled them to take 3mm pins on an inward angle. Still playing with the pin placement, but so far I like them better than the Wah Wahs. I don't think they'll last very long tho, I'm guessing 1 solid rock strike will kill the pins. We'll see. I'll post some photos later.


    That ebay guy has a pedal that looks kinda similar to the Premiums for $64 shipped:

    That same ebay seller has the same pedal in aluminum for $49 shipped but is out of stock at the moment. HT (the brand of pedal you posted) actually manufactures many of the popular pedals.
