    You cant go wrong with Wellgo MG1 magnesium flats. You can find them for around £30 and the bearings seem to be everlasting though the Magnesium will scar easier than Aluminium. Mine have lasted over 2 years of complete neglect and commuting and still spin smoother than my 6 month old SPD pedals.

    For cheap SPD's get some Shimano M520 off Amazon for under £20, last for ages and work just as well as the much dearer ones.

    Fine for a pub bike, rubbish for everything else.

    I am considering the Wellgo MG-1 for my P1, as I could do with some grippier pedals. However, when hunting around on Ebay I found the Wellgo MG-3 which may be a little lighter, a little smaller and have a different pin arrangement. I can't find any other information on them; the Wellgo website and the rest of the Internet yields nothing!

    They are only £18 though...
