Saint pins are 10 bucks, plus 13 bucks freight!
My mate is getting the OneUps and some of the 80 buck Afton shoes which will be about a 150 package to give the flat thing a go I wasn't prepared to pay $108 for the camo Aftons (only ones in 12) and risk them being half a size small.Just don't get Fooker pedals (or any of the knock off brands)
I think Adidas has improved them, tbh. More comfortable, and seeingly more robust, but early days.@Scotty T One Ups are a decent choice - I use them on both bikes now.
I haven't bought Five Tens since the Adidas takeover, so not sure of quality these days. My 2014 Freeriders are still structurally fine, just the inner sole has worn down so they aren't as comfy. I've got some Freerider Contacts from 2017 which are my main shoe still - even if the laces did rip through the eyelets at the top... If I know they are going to last 3+ years, I don't mind paying $200 for a pair.
Saint are most overrated pedals ever. New model was 100% better than previous ones......but a block of firm tofu would have been.
I'm sticking with the poodle They came with my bike and my budget is tight. I have some Wellgos which don't have as good clearance, and some old Easterns which are a really nice concave pedal, still not as good clearance as the Saints. The other issue with those is that I can't get them off the old bike, it has those shitty Truvativ canks with the inserts that stick to the pedal and come out of the crank and I haven't been able to remove the sleeve. I also had some bearing shennanigans with one of them a long time ago and not 100% sure all the balls made it, you'd think I'd learn before blowing my SPD''s apart but no.Nothing wrong with being hardcore and not blaming the pedals.
Local bolt store for the win. Don't be a Patsy to big bike
Yeah only two pins had remaining washers which are gone. I think with all pins fitted and no washers they'll better the other pedals I have for performance because of the clearance and bearings. These are the Easterns I have. They'll go with the bike when it goes.You've removed the washers? Makes them ALMOST long enough to grip satisfactorily.
Nope. I'd need to drill the pedals to fit the larger pins. I got two packs on Catch posted for one dollar more than a single pack from Pushys. Next set of pedals I will make sure they have inexpensive box of bolt style pins. I figure two packs of the Saints will go at least until I'm 50 at which point I expect to be less hardcore and start blaming the pedals.You mean these? I doubt there is anything special about those Shimano bolts. Sure I chose not to get the washers, but who wants those anyway? This not very expensive box should last me a life time.
Fair enough. Those nylon pedals that many of us use are only about $35-50...why wait?Nope. I'd need to drill the pedals to fit the larger pins.

I'm not sure what you are referring to. These were all the rage on here a while ago. I'm running 2 pairs and am happy with them.I watched the video about the Race Face pedals. The previously mentioned good ones are around $80.
