I have this pedal. Can you guys tell me would this work with a half metal toe cage?
Something like that link above.
Thanks if you happen to know. It looks like I can pop the reflectors out - but don't know if this is the right kind of pedal to do this or not.

I would not do it just buy a new set of pedals from Velo-Orange that is made for it.My 2 cents anyway lol.

Probably not. The pedal doesn't look like it has space in the mounting area, just for reflectors. Look for more of a mountain bike pedal, not cheap bmx.

If yoy already have the pedal, and don't mind loosing the reflector you can try; I'm somewhat doubtful though.

Nope, won't work. MKS Sylvan Touring or Road pedals or any standard road/touring platform pedal will work with half clips or regular toe clips. That's also a pretty high price for those Sneaker pedals.
i say you might be able to finagle it on, but you might have interference ith the metal ridges surrounding the reflectors. if you plan on getting the clips regardless, even if you have ot get new pedals, I suppose you could try it out.

Won't work real easily,could be made to work.Something like this will:

The little tang on the back of the pedal makes it much easier to flip the pedal over.
