Flat pedal me up!

I would like to get back on the bike again soon (post accident) and it has occurred to me that clipping in and out will be a big no-no for the time being as rotating my knee is still very uncomfortable. I therefore could do with a decent set of flat pedals (something light without clips) to fit to my resurrected Fuji (as the Pearson isn't fully fit yet either). Your thoughts and advice would be appreciated.

    Gusset Slim Jims.

    lots of colours and grip very well.

  • Thanks, but - and I know this is utterly ridiculous - I don't really want anything too mountain-bikey as I think it would look a little out of place on my single speed.

    I really like MKS GR-9's unfortunately they are one sided so really need clips.

    Should be able to find some cheap 2-sided cages to do you though.

    Pedals like that quickly wreck trainers though

    MKS Sylvian Touring are good, light, double-sided and can be used with/without toe clips.
    They last for years and can be regreased very easily.

    Have a look at superstarcomponents. Pedals at much cheaper prices.

    I use the nano ones on my proper mtb.
