    What pedals? (Platform)

    I've got some junk pedals now and have had a few close calls lately. What are your favorites?

    I couldnt be happier with my Sun/Ringle Zu-Zu's >$30 is a steal.

    I've used the Sun Ringle ZuZu's and overall have been impressed, especially considering the price. The pins last a long time but they only use one cartridge bearing and one bushing. I rode mine hard for over a year which included a lot of wet weather riding and they did fine. However, I pulled them apart a few weeks ago and the left side had almost no grease left. I lubed them up and so far so good.

    My other bike has a set of DMR V8's. IMHO, this is the best option in the low budget pedal range. They are good quality and easily serviceable. I think bikeparts.com has them for $35 or so. If cash is not an option go with the DMR V12's!

    I think the DMR v8 are the best pedals for the price. i dont see that big an advantage over the v12.


    How are the Shimano mx30?

    The best pedals I've had are Atomlab trailkings. I've had them for a couple
    of years and they have held up great. They have a thin profile so they feel
    very stable under your feet. I also just won a pair of NYC Freeride Lenosky sig.
    pedals, but i havnt ridden them much yet so i dont know how well they hold up
    but they look like they are made pretty good.

    XPEDO'S, can't go wrong. Love mine just change the pins out to hollow ones and add a little sliver of grip tape to the center and unreal traction.

    Xpedo

    Fancy pedals from Wellgo... I bought the MX-3s (mag) because they are super light, but it turns out they grip better than my old pedals, too. (Wellgo B-27 I think)

    Bearings are good.

    Kona Jackshit Primo. Like 40 bucks. Sealed bearings, chromo axle, double concave design. Pins get banged up sometimes. Very very grippy, and at 40 bucks, they're cheap to replace. I've been on a set for 2 years now. Very happy. I want to get new pedals, but I can't justify it, seeing as how these still work fine.

    Shinburgers don't too well in mud. Aren't the new ones casted instead of machined?

    Burgtec

    Quite a bit more exensive than the Sun Ringle but they shed mud really well, offer great traction and are close to indestructible. I love them

    Wellgo WAM B25's. Under 500 grams too. They take an absolute beating and keep on giving...

    Has anyone tried the Atomlab Trailpimps? Seem like they'd be good for trail riding, less so for urban/street. They're only $35 right now at unreal cycles, so I'd be interested in any feedback you guys have.
    Is it true you're an analyst for Brewster-Keegan? Awesome!

    I was looking at those too, but once the tread gets worn on them, they're pretty much useless... didnt look too replaceable.

    DK Iron Cross, period. I run the magnesium sealed. Ultra f~ckin' strong, and spin forever. The magnesium are quite light for as much beef as you get, and not many pedals come with more pins. Under $50 at Dans Comp.

    I posted in a similar thread about the Specialized Lo-Pro's. I picked up a pair and really like them.

    If you want grip a freind of mine picked up a pair of Drive Pro pedals from Dans Comp and they have super long pins. I have to say they grip like a mother_f***r if your into that sort of thing. Not too expensive either. He rides on a track though so I'm not sure how they would hold up being bashed against rocks and such.
