i imagine those primo mag pedals you have the pic of actaully in the thread work well. they go with the few pins but well places strategy that snafu uses and those rock. as far as a few ounces weight differnce, unless you’re crank flipping like mad, i don’t think you’ll notce much.
I love my GT pedals on my BMX, too bad they’re 1/2" threaded. I’m sure there is adapters, but I would rather have proper threading. Plus the pedals that come with the Torker DX are probably better than my GT pedals.
My GT pedals are exactly like this, except they have different grip on them.
I’ve been really happy with the Snafu (sealed bearing) pedals. I won a set at Moab a couple years ago, donated by Nathan. Not sure why he was parting with them. I put them on my muni to replace the original Primo Tenderizers. The Snafus were much grippier, with really zero slipping. I like them enough that I bought another pair to replace the original Wellgo pedals on my GB4 36. This has given me very consistent feel between my muni and Coker, which are the two unis I ride the most. That said, the Snafus are almost too grippy on the Coker, where I have a bit more trouble getting perfect foot placement during the mounting process. Sometimes it’s a bit of a challenge getting things adjusted while pedaling, but once I have the feet in the correct position, they don’t budge until the next time I dismount. I like them a lot.
i have them in green and they are amazeing. The have no movement in them after almost a year of rideing. Everyone seas that the magneaseum will crack on pedal grabs but thats not true at all. buy them there amazeing
As General Dibbles said, pedals are pretty much a personal preference kind of thing, but for Muni I’ve found the following to be important for riding in So Cal:
Wide Platform. The super light ones (mostly cut out) don’t give enough support for big drops and hurt my feet (you’re basically absorbing impact on a couple thin bars–not good at 210 lbs.). And they gotta be grippy or my feet slip off during hard rolling. If the pins are too high it makes it hard to shift feet (on the pedals) on the move, and this is a necessary skill, where you gotta shift foot position from balls of your feet to over your instep during drops. I also like the pedals too look cool. So all in, these are my favorites:
However, the Speedplay’s are stupid expensive and at less than a quarter of the price (25 bucks) the Azonic Mag pedals are still tops in my book. Jess Riegel of the SB Muni club was the first one to find these gems, and he told the rest of us. I believe Jess likes them for street riding as well.
