Buying Flat Pedals

Postby Smejdy » Tue Apr 23, 2019 07:14 am

Hi, i want to buy flat pedals but i’m not sure which ones. I’m mainly deciding between the OneUp Composite Pedals and HT Compoments PA03A pedals. My main priority is grip and longevity. ( yeah and i’m pretty much always riding in vans :D) I know that the oneup will be probably better in every way but i can get the ht pedals for pretty cheap and i’m asking if its worth spending the extra 20€. (Yes i’m on a tight budget :D) Thanks

What pedals do you ride now?
I have no experience of either, but both look like they will do a great job - both have similar reviews, so personally I would go for the cheapest if you can buy replacement pins for them.
One thing you will need to be aware of though - those pins will tear through the soles of a pair of vans. You will be replacing your shoes a lot quicker than you used to.

I ended up buying the HT Pa03A. They are cheap but really well made, they hold pretty good with vans. The pins are a little bit narrower but they are pretty long and strong. They are also easily replacable. Im size 42EU and the size of the platform is excellent (pretty big pltform). :)
