    Wellgo W-71 Pedals 400g @ $27

    Are these pedals any good?

    http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/154...lat-Pedals.htm

    they weigh only 400g/set and are pretty cheap. Hows the grip on them? i constantly slip off my stock Rockhopper's alloy pedals

    hate to be a debbie downer but your not going to get a grippy sub 400g pedal for around $30.

    I'd recommend going with some clipless pedals. You can easily find sub 300g clipless pedals for around $30-$40.

    For a decent cheap light platform pedal. Get a set of Wellgo MG1 off of eBay. Usually about $40 shipped. They weigh about 375g.

    Based on the pic on the Specialized site of that bike, the pedals look to be old style metal cage pedals, they won't give much grip, but they will be fairly light, probably in the 350g-400g range.

    wellgo MG-1 on ebay around $35. Weight at like 400g i think. Or forge comp pedals from performance bike at $25. free shipping and only 260g. I worry how they will hold up, but i just bought a pair. Or dimension pro mountian pedals from universal cycle at $37. Im going to go with the MG-1 if I tear the forges apart.

    just FYI 1pc bmx cranks are 1/2" and 3pc bmx cranks are 9/16" so most bmx cranks can be had to fit mountain bike cranks.

    I ride Wellgo MG-8 SPD Road Pedals.

    260g's

    Magnesium.
    No complaints.
    Hundreds of miles on them.
    Great reviews for them too.

    But, I'll be going with Ultegra SL or Dura Ace pedals next time for larger platform.

    Nothing to do with MTBing, but just vouching for Wellgo's quality for entry level pedals.

    IMO....the hottest platforms around, Dark Cycle Arachnids:







    With Azonic X Pedals as a close runner up...(These would compliment an XTR groupset well...look like Shimano could've produced them and called them XTR Platforms):

    I use plastic Odessey BMX pedals. Super light, never slip even in the wet, $15 at the LBS.

    They're worth it, that's what I run on my DH bike. Only downside to them, magnesium is a pretty soft metal, and if you slam your pedals on rocks you could rip out a pin. I think they have 9 pins on each side, and I'm missing 1-3 pins on each side of mine. However, this is from a whole season of DH. At $35 I just buy a new pair every year, and I usually get them off one of those Taiwan or Hong Kong sellers off ebay.
