    New pedals suit sizing kids 12”

    After suggestions for replacement pedals on my sons Cult 12” his current pair are well worn, he’s now trying to stand up and pedal and getting a few slips which isn’t helping his confidence.

    LBS had nothing suitable in stock so I ordered some Salt Junior pedals sight unseen and couldn’t find any dimensions on them prior to ordering (turns out they’re 85mm L x 95mm W), whilst shorter than full size platforms they are the same width as on my 21” BMX, looks like his sister just scored new pedals!

    I’m a bit worried about pedal strikes considering the size of the bike and crank length of 90mm. Anyone have any ideas on small children’s pedals with 9/16 thread?

    ...Preferably in red

    Hey man, I'm also interested in this for the BMX bike. I would have immediately noted the Salt pedals you bought but dang, sounds like they are too big.

    There are some nice and small alum pedals that are loved for kids Mtb. The wellgo kc001 and kc008 come to mind but I'm not sure if those are kosher for BMX riding. Maybe someone else can chime in. I'd worry about pedal strikes...tho I also hate that my kid slips off his generic nylon BMX pedals today.

    Anyone have an option?

    Chromag Radar if you're okay with spending a litte $$. They are bombproof, replaceable pins and will last well into the next bike.

    KC001 or KC008 are both very solid affordable options.

    FWIW - I wouldn't do the AEST pedals for a BMX freestyle bike. One crash at the skate park and they'll be toast.

    Meant to upload these ages ago for others to reference files were too big....

    Red are the Salt Jnr, Black are the standard Cult Juvi 12.

    We're metric down here but I did manage to dig up a tape measure for those on the USA

    Disappointed those Salts Jr. are so big. Any leads on a better pedal in a appropriate size?

    I've been looking around as well -- finding good width measurements for small pedals seems particularly difficult, since not all listings have them and those that do seems to just pick arbitrarily between one of:
    • End of threads to side of pedal
    • Crank to side of pedals
    • Pedal platform only


    For kids, finding something with a small platform but higher distance from the side of the cranks is no good since that results in a big increase in Q-factor.

    These Kactus 16T looks pretty interesting:
    https://www.pinkbike.com/u/millpill/...ti-pedals.html

    They're only $32 at Aliexpress:
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-...850003480.html

    The measurements look somewhat similar to the Chromag Radar, but there are pins in the middle instead of on the outside edge, which might bode well for small feet:

    Wellgo R146 might be another option for ~$30:
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Hot-...839574558.html
    -htb1bqtuxbvpk1rjszfqq6axuvxai.jpg

    Another options I'd seen was the Wellgo C260, but is ~$65 with fewer pins (though the middle pins appear to be higher grip):

    Wellgo R277 seems interesting as well, but has even fewer pins / less surface area and is also ~$65:
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/WELL...484182884.html

    Another thought that I'd had -- what would the tradeoffs be between shin-eating and performance to use nylon set screws as pins? Unlike molded pins, they'd be replaceable (though they might need to be drilled out, depending on how they broke) Anyone tried it?

    GUB GC010 are another option for as low as $15, with a few downsides:
    • Outer line of pins is further out than many of the other options
    • 300g (same as the Chromag Radar, but some of the other options are in the 200-230g range)
    • Odd / limited color choices (what does Red & Green go with?)

    For reference, here's the measurements for some of the other pedals listed:

    Wellgo KC008 (~$25-30):

    We use the metal pedals for MTB...but are they the right pedal for BMX riding?

    Tioga also appears to have a whole line of extra-narrow pedals (most in the $60-90 range):

    The Dazz Lite looks like a particularly interesting Nylon option for only ~$21 w/ a 72x95mm platform:

    ahh yeah, those Dazzlite pedals look like the business for nylon. Just ordered them from amazon.

    What are the standouts for metal MTB pedals? The Wellgo pedals on our spawn 20" are beat to shreds. Need to swap them out asap. Advice??

    Also ordered a pair of the dazz lites to try on the Yoji.

    I haven't heard anything negative about the Chromag Radar other than the price.

    If I were going to try a cheaper option, I'd probably give the Kactus 16T a try, maybe substituting some gripper pins.

    Ordered the Kactus 16T and 18T (larger adult version, still super light).

    Very spinny and impressively low weight (195g for the 16T, 225g for the 18T).

    Downside is that the stock pins have very little grip (shoes just slide right off). Based on the photos I'd figured it might be the case, so I also ordered a cheap pack of stainless grub screws. Once the grub screws come in, I'll post an update.
