Hmmm. I have some of those sitting around that I meant to put on the coker, but didn't get round to what with being away. Maybe I'll pop them on the Schlumpf and have a go.

Would you trust them for proper muni rides, or do you think toeclips are only for cokers?

Primos rock!

You left out Sun Ringles. $35, about medium weight. Definitely lighter than the Primos.

I don't think toeclips are worth bothering with for real muni, as it's too much faff getting into them if you are doing bumpy stuff, and weight saving isn't as important.

I don't usually worry about getting stuck in them, even in UPDs.

I'd just go for pinned platforms except for cokering.

plastic pedals suck for trials, pedal grabs destroy them.

well, street and trials demand alot different things, plastics aren't great when you land on concrete with them.

John Long and I use these Magnesium Azonic fusions, and love 'em. Cheap, light, grippy, magnesium.
