Some people asked for a review on these pedals. So here's the lowdown.
Eastern Bikes Aluminum Pedals
Sealed bearings(Non sealed are available)
10 pegs on each side of pedal(40 total between both pedals)
Available in multiple colors(Ones tested were in gold anodized, looks more like bronze though.)
Cheaper than alot of the other makes in the market.
After the past month of abusing them really hard, no play at all with the spindles and pedal bodies. The pedals provide a really good stable feel when carving turns or in the air. These pedals grip very well, any shoe works good on it, even tried tennis shoes on them and had good grip, best type of shoe to use on them though is a gum soled skate/bmx shoe(510's, Globes, DC's, etc.) Was very grippy mentioned? The only complaints to date is that if you break a pin, they are a little bit of a pain to replace(The pins come out hard) and that the finish comes off really easily(But who cares about that though in the end they will wind up looking all beat up anyways.
Overall these pedals are a very good for the price, will probably stick to these for future builds. Long term to follow.
Ok, now back to your regularly scheduled program.
