Wellgo MG1 question

edited March 2010 in MTB buying advice
I'm looking at getting some flat pedals and am set on the Wellgo MG1 but on Merlin's site it specifies " 9/16" (for 3 piece cranks) only ".

Will these be ok? the fact that they specify 9/16" 3 piece cranks only is confusing me. I have a Shimano FC-M542, Scott Custom, 2-piece Design, 44Ax32Ax22T crank.

    they will be fine.

  • Yup, they will be fine, fitted a pair recently to my SLX cranks, no problem.

    By the way, goto the HighOnBikes ebay shop, they are £29.99 with free delivery.

    Thanks for the tip. I'll get them from there.

    Just one thing. Are these the same size as the Wellgo V8 / V12 pedals or larger like the B54s?

    HoB also have an ebay shop and they put them up on auction (with free p&p) pretty regularly. I picked mine up for £23 the only downside is I had to be patient - but I was in no rush, so wasn't bothered.

    Slightly larger than a V8- from memory about the same width but they don't taper as much at the ends so the footprint is bigger.

    Great. I've just put in an order for a set of MG1s from HoB.
