    Xpedo Flats?!?

    Saw that vital put a pic of these bad boys up today. Thinking about picking up a set and was wondering if anyone has tried them. I abuse pedals like a red headed step child and have been know to destroy a pair ever month or two. Anybody ever run these things and have any word on how they hold up???

    I have a set on my trail bike that look almost identical to this. I would avoid these for freeride/dh. Very small pedal area, not a ton of grip, seem to loose my pins easy.....this is all based on lame cross country trails.

    I am entirely digging my DMR vaults I bought a few months ago. NOT ONE COMPLAINT

    i almost pulled the trigger for my trail bike a couple of months ago but turns out they were out of stock and discontinued for the newer model which are like $100.
    I think they are claimed 380g per pair??
    If so, I will try a set eventually for the trails.
    I think there was a review out there on PinkBike at one time.
    knowing you beat the snot out of pedals...I would do some more homework to make sure they can withstand abuse without breaking at the worst possible moment.

    I have a pair of pedals that have similar pin placement, i.e. pin on a protruding piece of aluminium, and the metal where the pin is has broken off on each pedal. I am sure those are nice pedals but maybe not for DH.

    i have the exact pair in gold. i picked them up for $50 from chain love. for that price, i love them. they have held up pretty well through some rock patches, and came with a box of replacment pins i havent needed yet in the season i've had them.
    Why Ti?

    You destroy a pair of pedals every month or so?! Pick up a few sets of Wellgo MG-1's then.... cheap, grippy, light, and expendable when mangled.

    I grabbed two pairs off of CL for just shy of $50 each and will be using them for my trail bikes. I'm switching from clipless to flats on all my bikes except road.

    Jurichar, if you ever see these in person, you'll also conclude they're not for hard hittin' DH/FR.

    Got them off of CL as well and love them, but I don't hammer them on DH. Mostly XC and they have held up great. Haven't lost any pins and have gotten hammered on some rocks here and there. No idea how they would hold up on DH, but for everything else, I highly recommend.

    3 piece bolt together...

    I don't think they would last more than a month. Are they held together by the pins? They would look sweet on a bar-hopper cruiser
