    Platform pedals

    I'm thinking about trying platform pedals out. Anyone have an old set I could try out on my bike so I can make an educated decision before purchasing? I was looking at the pedals that Transition sales or Crank Brothers 50/50 X Pedals. But I dont even know if I will like them yet. Any thoughts or advice on this is welcome.

    Warren,

    You'll like them for Rock Islands, etc. I've been running flats for the past month or so and like them more all the time. They're obviously not as good for a lot of climbing. Check out:

    Did you stick with those Tiogas?

    Going along with the Wellgo theme....I rock B27's on the Yeti when I go to Brundage or Tam. The pins are replaceable (I've already lost like half a dozen). A very wide platform. Combine that with a sticky soled shoe and they are like clipless. I'm looking at getting some 5.10 Impacts when I get some spare $.

    EDIT

    Uhhhh well since I can't ride cuz it hurts....I can pop off my pedals and loan 'em to ya' for a couple of days. Can you come by the store tomorrow sometime between 6-9pm? Just come back to the shoe department and ask one of the salespeople to get me from the back.

    Those FiveTen Impacts are great (I have the low-tops). Sticky!

    Since you have never tried them, I would suggest you run knee/shin guards....

    Otherwise, you will have shinburger. As demonstrated by the aptly named Brooklyn Machineworks pedal

    I second Visi's recommendation on the shinguards. Although a chesse-grated shin would make for good conversation on this board. As long as it's not my shin, of course.

    Warren came by the store last night to borrow my Wellgos and when I rode with him at Rock Island the other week he was rockin' the shinguards.
