Pedals.

  1. Get your pedals at Wal Mart. 5 bucks,yo and good quality too. I mean they still hold up after not really peddling all that much and holds up my weight I guess. It's about 6 months old these pedals and still look as good as new!
    Highly recommended. this product gets 100 stars!!!

    This is the Pedal Thread!

    Good pedals under 20 bucks 9/16 get without ordering online.
    Any suggestions?

    I just took a nice set of metal ones off my trike. I replaced them with clip pedals. If you want 'em. PM me. You pay shipping.

    Surely there's bike shops near you. But those pedals might cost $50.00.

    I don't mind cheap garbage as long as it's easy to get replacements. Maybe you ought to carry a spare set of Wal-Mart pedals?
     
  6. Alaskavan we could have traded for I have clip pedals originally on my bike!
    So I have clip pedals originally that was on my bike.....
    ...clip pedals...

    I took off the clips. No reflectors. That's kinda a bummer. But far far better than Wal Marts.
    I think I'm done. Shopping around a lot of cool looking pedals under 20 bucks though.
    Naw. I'm done.

    LFL, I think it's a good idea to clean and grease the bearings when putting on a used set of pedals. It's something that is often overlooked.

    Now is when I get to sound like a crusty old guy. My pedals are those that came originally on my 3 speed Free Spirit from Sears in the early '80s. I puts scads of miles on them...abusively as teens will do, they sat in a barn for 20 years, then cleaned up with soap and hot water and look good now....and those are from a moderately priced bike from a department store. They don't make 'em like they used to.

    For the most part plastic pedals stink. There are some good ones out there as my Raleigh MTB still has the stock 14yr old pedals with no cracks...

    I bought the Nashbar Jaws pedals for my XR75, just because I wanted stable, non-slippy metal pedals on any of my motored bikes.

    They have a very wide platform and I really like them. Since they're curved at the outer edges the reflectors look a little strange on them but you dont have to attach them I guess. Other than the reflectors there aren't any plastic pieces on these things and the bearings are supposed to be somewhat sealed to protect from foreign debris.
