    platform pins

    What ideas have you for replacing platform pins .Wait a minute yep I know itís a boring thread repeated a million times here but this was my solution .

    On those which I could drill a small hole and reach the other side I screwed the screws from the other side and filed the sharp end a bit . And on those which I couldnít do so I just cut half of the screw off and filed the four sides of its head to make a square with sharp points for better grip .And the pros is that they have philips head so i can trali fix ( tighten ) them with multi tool

    How was that?

    well your close to somethign good but not exactly. i di dthe same thign to my kona pedals, but i drilled out all the old pins all the way through, went to home depot, got me some nice like bolt to my desired lengths, pushed them up threw the hole, then i put a nut onto the bolt. they will always be able to be unscrewed or cut off. its much cleaner, and better lookin then what u got. and its less time consuming. ill get pics if u really want. its what i call ghetto fixin
    Looking for a 7.87 x 2.25mm shock, any brand any age that runs well!! cheap would be appreciated!

    You don't have to go to a LBS... Hardware store... Bolt specialty store... Automotive supply store...

    Given your track record with breaking sh!t... well... just leave it at that. Make of it as you will.

    By the way, those Jacksh!t pedals do have replaceable pins.
