    Cage Pedals for Larger Feet

    Does anyone have experience/knowledge/awareness with cage pedals with a larger footprint?

    What I am looking for:
    A cage pedal like this or this which has a larger overall cage, and still has attachment screw holes to allow installation of Power Grips.

    For years I used Power Grips as a best clipless alternative for getting around the city with different shoes on. But I was always plagued by my big size 13 feet "squishing" or "wrapping" around the pedal, especially the side.

    The past 2 years I went with plain BMX platforms with grip pins. I'm in love with the large pedal surface area... my energy/comfort/performance overall has improved. BUT the problem is I can't install the Power Grips and can't seem to find BMX-platform-sized pedals, regardless of style, which has screw holes for clip/PowerGrip accessories.

    Wellgo has this:

    Even though it's adjustable, it looks small overall.

    How good is that Wellgo pedal?

    Is there another manufacturer doing the same?

    Is there another cage pedal out there that's simply a larger cage, without some adjustable doo-dad?

    All my local shops only have average size stuff and speaking to them they don't know anything or don't wanna help.

    My only source is the Wellgo website.

    My magnesium platforms are Wellgo's. Piece of crap, the metal is chipping apart and most of my pins are cracked off.

    I'd rather not go Wellgo again!

    update: ran into this online:

    No specs, but it looks like a bigger cage area indeed. There is hope.

    I also have size 13 feet, and the pedals that came with my Dr. Dew seem to fit reasonably well in my inexperienced opinion. I'm using them with large Power Grips now.

    The dimensions are specified, so you can compare to your current pedals.

    Wellgo large size pedals

    Here's a list of the larger Wellgo platform/flat/cage pedals (which have clip/strap attachment points). There are other large Wellgo platform pedals but they are plastic and/or have no clip/strap attachment points (like BMX peg platforms).

    Just an fyi... BMX/downhill platform pedals are generally the largest pedals in existence... so aside from the no-clips/straps issue, they are ideal for large feet. My search is for a large cage-type pedal that will allow a footstrap.

    Wellgo pedal sizes seem to range between 98mm to 113mm in length (from crank to end of spindle). The pedals I'm listing fall in the upper range between 106/107 to 113. The width of the pedal scales up accordingly, but they seem to be less consistent with their pedal widths (I guess it's seen as not as important), for the most part their cage pedal widths are around the 60-75mm mark. Note: BMX platforms are average 100mm in width!

    Plug these into Google, you'll get the Wellgo page. e.g. "Wellgo M151".

    I guess we have a quorum- I have size 13 feet, too.

    The MKS Touring pedals are wider than the Wellgo offerings, which is good for me because my right leg is pretty duck-footed. They also have very nice, rebuildable bearings:

    Okay I found some standard metal cage pedals at a local shop and they are the same length (width?) as my bmx platforms: about 110mm. Just rode with them on, the width is perfect. I'll put on the Power Grips soon an see how they are.
