    pedal pins and five ten shoes

    Hi, has anybody noticed that smaller m3 pins wear out more the shoes than m4 pins. At the same height i found out that smaller m3 pins are destroying my five tens.
    Also except for pin size is pin type matters, grub screw pin ?

    thanks

    My Stamp 3 uses M4 grub screws. My 5.10 Freeriders soles have held up fairly well but they're starting to show some small gouges. I'd expect M3, being smaller, would cut up my shoes faster.

    Interesting question. I do find that the tacky gummy 5-10 rubber gets torn up fairly quickly, but haven't correlated or quantified it wrt to differing pin diameters, types and configurations. I would expect that smaller sharper pins would cut and tear it faster than bigger blunter pins. The past couple of years I've been wearing Shimano flat pedal shoes and the soles are def not as sticky as 5-10s, but they're way more durable against pin wear and provide plenty of grip for my purposes.
    What, me worry?

    I haven't noticed a difference but I pretty much budget for a new pair of 5.10 each year.
