has anyone seen or know where i can find any pedals like these? With a similar profile and with pins in the center?

i think they look 8) in that colour as well.

i would just buy them, but at £100, it puts me off every time i lsee how scuffed and chipped my V8 are.

on a completely unrelated note, whenever i put the little cool face, the cursor jumps to the bottom of the screen. anyone else get this? or is it just me?

  • I'm loving my new Superstar pedals, great platform and super good looking. I've got the black ones with red pins, I may get the patriots for my other bike 8)

    Another vote for the superstars.

    Much grippier than my old V8's. Got them a few weeks ago and they only have light scuffs despite loads of strikes (low BB and narrow rooty/rocky trails)

    Pedals are not meant to look brand new. Mine look like they've been tumble dried with rocks, but I think that adds to the charm.

    Those Superstars do look good. You need to spend a bit to get all the good options mind but they've got a nice platform.

    Not really. Mine are completely standard and I got them in the sale for 36 quid :D

    They are pretty light anyway: a claimed - just under 500g for thru pins model and about 450g for grub screw model.

    That isn't light! My heavier set of pedals is only about 2/3ds the weight of that!

    That's more than my cromo-axled MG1s ;) Though they're a bit fatter I think.

    If you mean my pedals then yes. They have the same body as Kona Wah Wah's and similar dimensions to Easton Flatboys.

    Thats why I got them, big feet and small pedals give me foot cramp :x

    I meant, mine are thicker. The platform feels about the same size but yours should strike a wee bit less, the MGs are chunky.

    They would strike less but they have given me more confidnce so I go and srape them off bits of zoom or bust and the like all the time.

    I do find I can do rock gardens much better with the lower profile

    Bet the paint won't last to long though :wink:

    My mate has had them for about 2 months but they look nearly a year old because of the paint wearing off so easily

    I just avoid riding into the sides 8) (then knock all the paint off while crashing)

    But the best way to ride it is to stay to the outsides :roll:

    I have already crashed 2 or 3 times with them (twice on zoom or bust)

    Small crash on Sunday but over the bars on Saturday with you. I was a metre out of sight of you guys at the end and I hit the side and went oer the bars and got trapped under the bike :lol: My knee still fekin hurts :cry:

    I cangarantee not as hard as some of the rocky bits on Spooky.

    Almost lost my eye (seriously would have lost it if I hadn't been wearing the glasses I got the week before :shock: ) and I still got the scars (no I won't show them) and my arm still gives me greif sometimes nearly a year later
