Any ideas on a good set of flat pedals? Trying to expand my horizons.

I put these on my Mukluk. The paint chipped off a bit in one spot, but otherwise no complaints. I don't like flats as well as clipless mainly because of the difficulty in centering my feet on the pedals side-to-side so my boots don't rub on the crankarm and squeak.

I put EVO flats on my Pugsley. Not horribly expensive, and they work well enough.

I run these

http://www.jensonusa.com/Pedals/Straitl ... form-Pedal cost 160 bucks from Jensen (I think I forked out 120 for em) on my Banshee (geared)

and these

http://www.jensonusa.com/Pedals/DMR-V8-Pedal?cs=White cost 30 bucks from Jensen on my single speed

Image

With almost 100 bucks (or 400%!!!!) difference in price, I'd say this: the straightlines are nicer. No doubt about it. I guess they are lighter, but I'm not a weight weenie. More bling factor, but I got a muted color, the same as the picture I posted (they look sweet in pink).

The straightlines are NOT 400% the pedal the DMR's are. I would say they are 110% of the pedal the DMR's are. And that additional 10% the pedal might be added to the bike gets lost compared to, say, suspension performance, tuning of your drivetrain, etc. Things you may be able to improve for free.

Point being, I'm not upset that I spent some $$ on dope a$$ flat pedals, but they weren't "worth it" either.

On the other hand, you MUST purchase shoes from 5.10

Those are WORTH every cent, and then some. The way those shoes stick to both pairs of my flat pedals is unreal. I literally can not describe how amazingly well they stick to the pedals - I'm an engineer and I don't understand how the physics work on this deal. I don't appriciate it until I hop on the bike with a different pair of shoes on and find my feet flying off the pedals the first time I try to turn. If you ride on flats, these are MUST HAVE. I cannot emphasize that enough!!!!!!

I've been using these wellgo pedals I bought at Northtowne on my daily commuter for almost 2 years now. I can't count how many times they have hit the curb or ground and just keep taking the punishment.

FBM Nice pedals. Cheap, durable, good shape and grip. Had these on my fat bike and loved them so now they're on the 29er. Snow doesn't stick to them and turn to ice like metal pedals.

Spank Spikes have been great for me.

wide platform works great with my winter boots for fat bikin' ... then I throw 'em on the other bikes with my 5.10s and all is gravy.
