Many of the plastic pedals that come stock on less expensive bikes are pretty poor. Many reports on BF of their cracking after minimal use.
Higher end bikes frequently do not even come with pedals as the manufacturers figure experienced riders have their own preferences in pedals and will ditch anything provided as original equipment in order to fit their preferred clipless pedal type.
