Currently have DMR V12's and fancy a change with my biking shoes. Something slimmer would be nice.

So superstar Nano's, or Wellgo B54 or MG1?


Are Nano's the most bang for buck in the grip and lightness stakes at the moment, or Wellgo worth a lookin?

    The MG1s can be had cheaper, and are lighter than Nanos. The platform is around the same size, though a little thicker at 19mm in the middle. Both have good grip. MG1 for me unless you are regularly smashing them into rocks.

    B54 are heavier duty.

    As Wellgo also make pedals for other companies, you can often find MG1's even cheaper (or more expensive) than the Wellgo branded ones. Someone has them on Ebay for £21 posted at the moment. Serious bargain.

  • had the nano's for 5 yrs or so iirc. Zero maintenance reqd so far they still spin freely with no graunching after years of mud,river crossings etc. Amazed s I though they would have been dead in 6 months with the winter riding I do

    Look at exotic cycles flat pedals. Same as nano's but slightly cheaper. Ive had some for 2 years, they have been faultless and grippy so far.

    Love my B54s. Nice big platform, very grippy and look great.

    lol, my dmr v8's i had to replace as the bearings fell out the side and had half a centimetre of movement in them.

    The superstar pedals i bought are great and hopefully will last years with the replacement bearings you can buy for them.

    Yep, I have 2 pairs of Exotic and they are exactly the same as Nanos, other than the price.
