    BMX Pedals with sealed bearings question

    I am typically ride fixed gear, but have been searching through this forum looking for information about BMX pedals with sealed bearings.

    Most of the posts I found were a few years old, so I wanted to see if there was anything new.

    I am looking for a pair of BMX platform pedals with smooth sealed bearings. I don't really know a good BMX shop around here, so I wanted to ask here.

    Can anyone recommend a pedal? This is going to be for riding around [no tricks], but I wanted a larger platform pedal. Which pedals have the smoothest bearings?

    Sun Zuzu's are considered to be about the best platforms around. Oddysey Trail Mix pedals can also be had with sealed bearings. There's plenty of others, those are just the first ones to come to mind.

    Dan's Comp has a pretty good selection of pedals, to choose from.

    9/16"

    Are any of the sealed bearing pedals from Dan's about the same? Or are there some I should avoid?

    Thanks again for your quick responses!

    From what I have read, most of the pedals are made by a few companies. I think Wellgo is one of the larger manufacturers. You might also consider these:

    Why do you even need sealed pedals? I've had the same unsealed pedals for the last 5 years and had no problems with them other than snapping off a few pins that were replaced with no problems...

    Mainly I am looking for a pedal with a smooth turning spindle and I am also looking for a pedal that is low maintenance. Of all the pedals I have ridden, pedals with sealed bearings seem to do this a little bit better.

    Seals are cute. I also like Sea Lions which are very similar.
    "I just googled triple crank set and i see what your saying. this bike has 9 of those "cranksets".
    "They are showing [the TDF of Versus] at 5 different times in the day. It doesn't say which one is the live one."
