    Budget pedal recommendations?

    My MTB alloy pedals are on the way out... broken cage on one, bearings starting to rumble on the other. Looking for a replacement pair... low price, commuter-level durability. Anyone have personal experience with a pedal set they can recommend?

    I prefer a combo clipless/platform pedal so I have the option of dusting off my bike shoes, now that I'm ramping up the distance of my bike commute.

    Bonus appreciation points if your recommendation is available for Amazon Prime shipping!

    I love my MKS Touring pedals. Not so useful if you want clipless though. Have lasted great, super durable and classic looks.

    Universal Cycles -- MKS Sylvan Touring Pedals

    I have some similar to these.

    Universal Cycles -- Black Market C4 Plastique Pedals

    mine were a few bucks less at my LBS, though.

    a decent commuter pedal, actually.

    It's hard to go wrong with Shimano pedals in my opinion. If I'd want a hybrid pedal, this is what I'd get:
    Amazon.com: Shimano PD-M324 SPD Dual Platform Pedal: Sports & Outdoors
    '94 RSBikes Stampede (commuter), '05 Prophet, '09 Scattante XRL Team, '10 Slice 4
    Retired: 97 C-DaleSuper-V, 05 C-Dale R5000

    I have these on two bikes. Many years, no problems. One of the sets is on my commuter/townie that sees 60-125 miles per week year round.

    Amazon.com: Shimano PD-M324 SPD Dual Platform Pedal: Sports & Outdoors

    Now send me some bonus points!

    I have 2 pairs of these:

    http://www.amazon.com/Wellgo-WPD-M-1...=wellgo+pedals

    Not a lot of miles on them yet, 6,000 on the first set moved to another bike due to strike damage (cranked through a lean or two) and I needed another set.

    +1. As I often ride in leather oxfords & brogues, I ditched the SPDs in favor of MKS Sylvan Tourings years ago. While there is a trade off in efficiency you more than make up for it not having to tote a pair of cycling specific shoes at the office all day.

    Never looked back.

    Stolen Thermolite. I got mine off Amazon but not sure if it was offered free shipping. They're pretty cheap, look cool, and come in a range of colors. I got the apple green. Very grippy and I like the low profile and wide surface area. I think it's strictly platform with no cage option but worth looking into.
