    Crank Brothers 50/50 Pedals

    Hi Guys,

    To be honest at the moment I'm giving up on clipless (and I'm not changing my mind), basically because I haven't been riding for the last couple of years, and I don't think I need the added hassle of learning clipless while still trying to regain skills I lost a while ago. I've been out a few times recently, and I'm really not confident riding, simply because I don't think I'll unclip in time. I've already come off a couple of times

    I'll probably give them another go in a year or 2 when I feel more comfortable on the bike....

    Now that's off my chest (feel free to call me stupid/lazy etc) has anyone used the new Crank Brothers 50/50 Pedals? They look pretty beefy, and aren't overly expensive.

    Is it worth forking out for the XX models over the X? Is there any other platform pedals I should look into?

    Cheers,
    Chris

    you could always buy the Mallet C's, that way when you feel you have the skills to upgrade to clipless, you can do it without buying new pedals

    I have the 5050x, basically if you know how you can clean and regrease the bearings on the 5050x and not pay the extra for the xx. I love em, they are big though if thats what you like.

    Thanks mate - I just bought some them, except the black/silver ones. Don't think the blue will match my red bike

    I've got the XX on mine. Sealed bearings compared to the other one. It comes with a set of red plates and longer pins. I love mine! They are surprisingly sticky even with the shorter pins.....

    PS. I like your bike! (looky mine!)

    I can't wait til it's Spring again here in the northeast. I'm gonna grab a pair of the XX's in black/gold. What do you guys think about the CrankBros. Cobalt cranks? I have to buy a new crankset as well and was looking at the Holzfellers with GigaPipe Team DH Combo for 169.99 on pricepoint.
