    Pedals to use with 5.10's?

    So I just bought a pair of the 5.10 impacts and I'm wondering on pedal selection. I was thinking a bout Syncros Mentals of some sort or possbily specialized lo mags. Ive had good luck with low mags in the past my only major beef with them is how much of a pain they are to get on and off a bike. Ive heard great things about the Mentals. Hows durability on the Mentals?? Has anyone tried Fun pedals, heard good things about them too. Id like to get something in the sub $100 range.

    BTW 5.10 Impact Mids 77.58 overnight shipped from Zappos. They price matched pricepoint.com and still gave the free overnight! Boo Yea

    Sorry can't say I've used any of the pedals you mentioned, but I have had great luck with Truvativ Holzfellers and Crank Bros 50/50xx. One thing about the 50/50's and 5.10 shoes, I found it better to stuck with the stock pins, the longer ones were way to grippy(I like to have some movement). Good luck and great choice on the shoes, you won't be sorry.

    I have the 5050XX's, and personally I love them. Many people don't agree. I've had the chance to ride on Syncros Mental Magnesium's, and I didn't like them. Sharp little buggers, ripped the bottom right out of my shoes. But, if you want grip... Syncros is the way to go.

    With 5.10's it doesn't matter what pedal you use. I've ridden my moms old schwinn with nylon pedals with the 5.10s and they felt grippier than my a frames without the 5.10's.

    Go for what ever is the cheapest but still not crappy cause with 5.10's it doesn't really matter if you've got $200 pedals

    If you used 2X4's and shoved a bolt through them, the 5-10's would grip like no other...

    P.S. Here's the thread to read:

    I have used the 50/50xx for 2 years with 5.10's and Bomber which has the same rubber. After the post a few days ago I gave the Syncros Mental Magnesium's a try. What a joke I DON"T care what others say my 50/50's have held up for 2 years and the syncros had ripped pins in 3 runs! When I say that it didn't just rip the pin out but broke the screw hole out. If I paid full price I would not be a happy camper hell even at the price I did pay I'm not. They also felt kind of funny on my feet not sure if it was me coming from 2 years on the 50/50 but my feet never felt like they had full contact. The pins feel great but so do my 50/50.

    Oh if anyone wants a good deal on the Syncros let me know LOL.

    They're so grippy that you don't even need to use pedals with them.

    You know how in F1, brakes get so hot that they superheat the air around them to glow red? It's kind of like that with those shoes. They're so incredibly grippy that it actually turns the air beneath the soles into solid matter.

    Serious answer: great & inexpensive pedals are the Nashbar LandCruisers, great grip, replaceable pins, and sealed bearings. And they are on sale now for $24.99 shipped.

    It's all good as long as I'm inciting people to have fun one way or another. That thread was pretty funny.

    Beamer that does look like a pretty nice pedal for the money. I might pick one of them up tomorrow.

    I've had my 5050XX for roughly 2 months and they have damn near fallen apart on me in that time.

    The set screws which hold the colored plates constantly fall out (despite being loctited). Then when you try to get them tight after getting a few replacements from Crank Brothers, they strip, instantly. At about half the torque I would judge sufficient for such fasteners, too. Who knows, maybe they're not using metric hex screws. To add icing to the cake, the pins are amazingly soft, and many of mine have broken off completely. To add insult to injury, I paid too much for them.

    I'm currently in the market for replacement pedals.

    Kona Jackshit Primo. They actually cup your foot. Sealed bearings, replaceable pins, big spindle, and cheap. I had the same set of the unsealed ones for like 3 years. Then I gave it to a dude. He liked them better than his 50/50. Now I'm on some Azonic Accelerators or whatever. I should've kept the Konas.

    I disagree about the 50/50. The Convex shape feels awkward. The grip is mediocre at best.

    convex shape grows on ya, and you can always get more or longer pins for it, most do.

    Even with long pins, the grip is only mediocre. I gave my 30 dollars Kona pedals to a friend. He instantly liked them more than his 50/50s
