Pedals
« on: August 09, 2015, 08:35:24 PM »
I decided to treat myself to some nice new pedals and since the dugans won't be out until the winter I'm going to get something else.

I want something with a good sized platform, decent concave and thin body. I've narrowed it down to 3 options so tell me if you have experience with any of them.
Premium https://www.danscomp.com/products-PARTS/465046/Premium_Slim_Pedals.html
Demolition https://www.danscomp.com/products-PARTS/465272/Demolition_Trooper_Pedals.html

Welgo MG-1's.

$40.00 bucks on Ebay. Pretty damn wide, dual concave. Light weight


No idea about the pedals you listed, they're too expensive, IMO.

I've had the MG 1s before. Pretty good actually although the bearings died a little too soon. Check all the boxes except for thin body.

I agree that all those options are too expensive but I have a $100 gift card so price is no issue.

I've had premiums for a while. They're not concave. Despite that they're quite nice. No wrench flats. 

What about Rubens?

Why do metal pedals not have knurlings anymore?

Knurling on cnc pedals? Not so much, forged probably would be better way of doing so.

People realised that the pins were doing the gripping

Knurling holds dirt.

I have the Fatality Pedals, which are pretty much exactly the same as the premiums. They have held up really good still pretty much perfect after 2 years, and easy to find titanium spindles/pins if you are into that kinda stuff. Also I would recommend the fatalities over the premiums since they are cheaper by a fair way if I remember correctly.

As mentioned, Premium pedals feel very flat. I'm currently running Ruben pedals which I love because of the concave but I too would like something a bit more slim. Hopefully the Dugan pedals fit the bill. 
 
If you're into plastics at all then the Colony pedals feel slim, have a nice wide body and good concave to them.

The Premium pedals bend really easily because of the tiny spindle. Shame because they feel nice. The Eclat ones are crap, don't bother.

Really like how the Premium shape feels; big wide body, super thin, enough concave, light as hell. No bent spindles from riding em since last fall, but I'm a peg grinder.

For the sake of clarity, I picked up a set of the plastics on the cheap. They feel great, but $100 for a pair of metal pedals (BMX pedals are a relatively high wear part) is still extremely expensive. If you're going to pedal grind, definitely avoid them.

The lack of wrench flats is a bit of a hassle, but not a big deal. Makes it slightly harder using an 8mm Allen wrench, but installing them wasn't a deal breaker. I used the age old G-Sport advice and shouted, "STRENGTH OF A BEAR!" as I turned the 8mm and they went right on.
