MKS GR-9 Platform Pedals 9/16"

This is the only traditional platform pedal still in production. For use only with Toe Clips.

The large-area platform top makes this a great choice for cyclists who prefer to ride in soft soled shoes. The large flip-up tab makes getting into the clips a snap. Unlike older platform pedals, the flip-up tab still works even if you install pedal reflectors.

Aluminum body, CrMo spindle, 295 grams.Don't forget:
Toe Clips and Toe straps


Bearings can be serviced/adjusted in the traditional manner.

Comments:

Bought these on a recommendation from other fixie riders. They exceeded expectations for solid sole contact and cornering clearance! No more mushy feel or foot cramping with gumsoles... Three nitpicks: - Narrow platform may not fit wider shoes. - Molded construction makes for a less durable toe flip. - Slightly longer platform body meant dropping DOWN a TOECLIP SIZE!! [smalls are tough to find:(] Overall I ♥ them. Quickly replaced other, nicer classic pedals. Performance trumps looks.

Best platform pedal on the market

By Bruce A. Johnson

    Comments:

    Great pedals for commuting. You can get a powerful stroke in with regular shoes, without putting undue pressure on your foot. The only problem I've had is that the tab on the back of one pedal broke within a year -- maybe a sample defect. I'm buying them again, though, so that says something about the product.

      Comments:

      These pedals are quite comfortable given their light weight and simple profile. They don't strike the the road even in the tightest corner. Work with almost any ordinary shoe but I prefer BMX shoes with them. Also, I much prefer PowerGrips to toe clips. I don't know why this says they only work with toe clips when in fact I've been using PowerGrips with them for a long time now. I have used these daily to commute to work from spring to fall. In the winter I switch to a larger pedal for my bigger boots. They generally last 2 years and that's pretty amazing considering I ride every day, twice a day, in all kinds of weather.
