    Looking for Platform pedals

    Now im in the market for some new pedals. I had the Azonic magnesium pedal on my bike until the bearing craped out on me and now I want a nice pair of sealed cartridge bearing platform pedals. any suggestions?

    Well I live in Scotland, so they've been exposed to their fair share of mud and muck over the winter. Still running smooth.

    Never had any problems with the pins, they are standard 3x10mm black oxide coatedd steel capscrews and go in from the backside. IF you bend them, Dremel them off flush and unscrew from the backside, screw in the new one and you're done! I have taken hundreds of miles, many rock/root strikes, mud, sand, etc. and no bent pins of problems. Yeah....Konaworld selling at msrp....LOL.... whatever.....that's why I didn't buy there!

    The nice thing is the front and back edges are like a ramp so when you get a pedal strike it doesn't catch as badly on the leading edge. The Kona JackShit is a decent looking cheaper pedal. I looked at alot of dffernet pedals at LBS and the net before I bought my first pair of these.

    I recently did a lot of looking around for a good platform before I decided to wait. The most popular one I found was the Deity Decoy Pedal. Very similar to the Kona, and about 3 or 4 others, but the pins come out the tops so you can't damage the threads, and they're only 75 bucks. They had by far the most adamant users.

    As far as Konaworld having the highest prices for Kona products, you'll never see a manufacturer selling their own product for less than MSRP, it's MSRP for a reason.

    The bad thing about the setscrews is that they get ripped out easier than a capscrew that goes in from the backside. Up to you.

    Yeah MSRP is that for a reason.

    Azonic pookies...

    I like my Azonic pookie pedals.....even better than my Azonic magnesiums (and my bearings are still going strong) because they grip my shoes really well.

    Another vote for the Kona Wah Wahs. Been on them for six months with no problems. I love them. They have a really good feelunddr my feet. I ride in old school type vans and they stick well.
