I have used these pedals on all (7) of my bicycles for many years/miles with absolutely no problems. Easy to service the bearings, comfortable, smooth, and look great.
That was fast, thanks!Originally Posted by Thrifty1

Has anyone tried these?
I used them (PowerGrips) on a Tailwind recumbent for a while. Worked fine. Ironically, they depend on a minor foot twist........kind of like clipless, but more casual and any shoe will do. Good compromise on an around town bike for people used to clips or clipless. I feel a little insecure when my foot isn't somehow attached.

I use Powergrips and platform pedals on my Lemond Spinner, and I wouldn't use anything else on the road if and when I ever shift over from clipless to platform pedals and clips. Easy in and out -- much easier than conventional clips -- and plenty of security when peddling. Simple, and good looking too.Originally Posted by gerv

I use this Nasbar pedal on my trike and my bike. Like'em a lot and they
are cheap on sale alot.............
Then there are some really neat Crank bothers platforms (read kinda expensive but neat anyway )
These have got to be the Rolls Royce of platform pedal land...........
I've tried some of those with the replaceable pins. Very good contact. Will probably go there soon for my commuter. I like the large size because I have #13 shoes.
Yep, I've got snowshoe feet too!!(sz13)Originally Posted by jcm
The Nashbar pedals I recommended are as wide as the ball of my foot in street shoes!!!
GOOD grippy contact with them.
I dropped $110.00 for Speedplay Drillium pedals for my 'bent. I love them and can't foresee ever using anything else. Killer pedals. bk
And now for an alternative point of view: For most purposes any old platform pedal will do. I have $6 plastic cheapies on one of my bikes. I'm keeping them til they fall off, which I don't think will be all that soon. I guess I'm just a Fred.
Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.
thanks for the rec: with size 16 shoes, my current toeclips are frustratingly small
They're beautiful handsome machines that translate energy into joy.
