Second pair, some years now. What can i say... 4 years ago, tried to get off the bike, shoe stayed on pedal, ankle touched the ground - ouch..
These great pedals can "shape" a man..

If it's stick you want, get these. You're not likely to slide off them. But as someone else pointed out here, once you do you'll be rewarded with a bloody set of metal prints on your skin. They look real cool, but no way I'd take them on the trail. You don't want to crash and get your bike hurdling towards you armed with these bad boys. Reasonably priced and well made - they have their uses. However, for trail riding, use at your own risk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Beefy!
Cracking bit of kit. Did a 20 mile thrash this morning with them. And never once did I think about or even notice them. That means two things: 1) I never lost any grip on them, 2) I was fortunate enough not to have them hit my shins!
Excellent bit of kit. My word of advice would be to occasioanly unscrew the outer beartrap cage bit, and put some copper grease, or even just 3in1 oil, on the screw threads. This will stop them seizing, so when you want to grease the bearings, you won't have the problem of a few years worth of mud, crud, and kak all helping the screws to seize solid and round off.
Oh, and the manual is brilliant...
"these pedal with chew through clothing and human flesh". Ace!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Do not last
I've ridden these for 8 months and have had to replace them, the grip is great and they look beasty, but they have developed a click due to the bearings being shot! They have only been used for mainly road use so there has been no build up of dirt and I have kept them greased and maintained, personally, I think a pedal should last a lot longer than this. Very disappointed.

wear a shoe with a soft sole these will hang on to you like you owed them money, but NEVER ride them on the serious stuff without shin pads on because they will bite you and bite you hard. theyre a lot chunkier than they look in the pics and the finish is simple but classy. easy to maintain and easy to clean, these pedals are a good alternative to your usual flats.
