    Getting into FR

    I live in Florida and have been XC riding for about 5 years (Mostly at Santos). I bought a Specialized Enduro last year with the intention of starting to "fly" a little, but havent really gotten into FR yet (mostly because I ride clipless and feel uncomfortable using them to do drops and such). I am currently looking at the "Wellgo WAM-B67 Flat Pedals" because they are on sale at pricepoint. What are yalls thoughts on these pedals? Do you recommend anything else? Any other advise?

    I think shoes are more important than pedals personally. Get a set of 5.10 shoes and it will do wonders for your learning ability.

    I have no experience with the Wellgos, but I can highly recommend the Kona wah wahs. They are light, super strong, and have insane grip. I've had my set for over a year now and have not a single complaint.

    I would pay $10 more and get the Ringle Zuzu. It's a far better pedal, same weight with sealed cartridge bearings and they come with extra pins too.

    My favorite pedals that I've ever ridden have to be the Tioga mx-pro pedals. Extreme grip, sealed bearings, and you can rebuild them. Most of the people in the group that I ride with have them as well.

    We've had a set of the wellgo b67s from PricePoint for several years now on various DH bikes.

    They've held up quite well. They're sealed bearings & still spin smooth. They're a pretty good pedal for a decent price from PP.
