EDIT after a few weeks of use: DO NOT buy that shiiat, its weak, not worth it, doesnt work well...

only 10 bucks (per piece), they fit most common platform pedals, and theyre ridiculously easy and fast to install, in case you kill those bolts you can get replacement in a HW store for pennies and if you kill the plate, get another one for $10.

sure not as fancy as the NYC freeride stuff, but as long as my only sponsor is me it should do the job.. will write about performance later, soon as I know how to pedal-grind (maybe by tonight) :rolleyes:



look it up at danscomp...

I'm interested to know what you think about them after you've used them for some time. Sound good in theory, but they can be useless or even create more problems in reality.
Any feedback? Easy to install, do they really fit pedals out of the box, does the weight of the plate make the pedal end up traction (with pins) side up, stuff like that?


BTW, here's the danscomp link where they can be ordered.

I took a look at them yesterday, they dont seem to wear to good. from what I can see they might need to replaced soon. The best thing to go with a metal plate which would better than the plastic, ie, NYC Freeride pedals with the plates. If you don't have the duckets you can cut your own out of scrap metal and screw them on for less than ten bucks...

yeah, steel sounds like a better choice, but isn't lexan supposed to be nearly indistructable?
I know about NYC Freeride, but it just feels wrong to spend on the pedals nearly as much as I did on my BMX bike.  Smiley
I've found 2 other types of pedals in the $30-40 price range that are grind ready:
link 1
link 2

cutting the plates out of a metal sheet should be relatively easy, but I don't have the tools. I'll see what I can come up with though.

Iggy's right, Kommando wears out pretty fast, almost killed it already... I don't like those 2 pedals that meanmachine posted... but I like that home-tuning. did you do it yourself?

bottom line is gotta get pedalgrinds down properly so you end up hurting your pedals a lot less, like HIM... I looked at his pedals right after this run, he had brand new PRIMOs, no grindplates or whatsoever, and they were not damaged at all.

also I believe the final solution is the NYC freeride pedals, because they're so damn awsome anyway... maybe one day I make friends with Andy :rolleyes: and get a welfare price...

I forgot to check out riders' pedals at the bike battle.
He didn't have pins on either side of his primos, right?

I didn't make those "home-tuning", just found them posted on the web, look easy to make though.

hung up on what? if youre grinding proper obstacles (such as a grindbox) it doesnt have a chance to get hung up.. worst case the tire grinds along so does your bash piece, chainstays, dropouts, quick release (thats why u need through axle), chain and sprocket (ouch, u gotta work on it), crankarms, etc........
