I'm looking at my sold-with pedals on this bike, and they're not bad, I don't think, but I was wondering what sort of difference a metal pair would make. I did an amazon search about them, which wasn't useful except showing me that the price can go up to almost eighty dollars (!).
What's the deal with metal pedals? Are they just heavier duty, I guess? Anything wrong with plastic? And what sort of price ranges do they fall into, and the qualities that differentiate them?
