“I’m in a tough position, I’m really psyched on my 2 sets of signature pedals. The trailmix feels so good and works well in every situation. The JCPC is a combination of metal and plastic. It works even better because you get to grind one side while still having the stickiness of a metal pedal.” - Jim Cielencki
The Triple Trap was arguably the most popular pedal of its day, and a best seller until modern day pedals of the last few years. When they were popular, Odyssey sold in excess of 1,000,000 Pedals. Triple traps were caged pedals, with removable cages, that could be replaced with OEM units or a slew of after-market cages (Trog, Crupi, etc) that still strike fear into to shins of those who used them.
In conjunction with Jim Cielencki, Odyssey designed and developed a new platform pedal from the ground up. The Cielencki Pedal, or JC for short. was based on the parallelogram shape made popular by Shimano in their earlier DX pedals. Each pin location, material, shape and curve was scrutinized and tested. The JC soon became known as one of the most popular BMX pedals of all time. It became obvious when almost every professional rider was using them, regardless of their sponsor. The end of the JC reign came from it’s rapid duplication by competitors who all had a JC version themselves. From the pins, to the end cap, to the graphics and colours, every feature of the JC had been mimicked by the competition. None were ever as good as the original.
The natural progression of the JC was found in the JC Trailmix. In conjunction with ideas from Taj Mihelich, the JC was updated based on rider feedback. The JC Trailmix was lighter, sleeker and had stronger spindles. The Trailmix was the first pedal to use the 17mm wrench flats to help create a stronger spindle. Instead of tapering a spindle down to a smaller, weaker diameter just to use the status quo 15 mm wrench, the JC Trailmix uses a larger thickness at the point where all of the major force is located. Since the majority of BMX axles used a 17 mm wrench, this also cut down on the amount of tools one would need to work on his or her bicycle.
