If your smooth, get some Wellgo Mg-52's or MG-1's
If not, get JC's or Hamiltons.

If you're smooth you can still get the Jim Cs.

If you're cool, then you will get Jim Cs.

If you know what's up, you will get Jim Cs.

And i like Wellgo. Despite the fact that they get a bad rep from the UNsmooth riders who kill them.

Animal pedals crack when you hit them hard. Jim C's just bend (the aluminum ones). The nice wellgo's might be OK, but judging from how crappy the unsealed ones that come on stock bikes are, I wouldn't spend money to get anything with the word wellgo on it.

Nope. If you broke your leg you'd get bored too.

I found a worm in my pedal once.

But it was dead.

My sealed pedals are on the way.
