New Platform Pedals???????

Hey, i've been looking for some new pedals to replace the crappy stock ones on my KHS Alite 500. The best deal i've come across were Wellgo MG-1 (white) platforms; they have some on ebay for like $30 w/ S+H.
Should i get them or what else would you recommend? I'll either buy from JensonUSA or ebay (if the seller has a good rep).

thx

Are there any other brands u would reccommend?
Cause, Crank Brothers:too pricy$$$, Shimanonce again too pricy$,
Azonic:don't like their platforms

On JensonUSA they have some "Drive Platform Pedals" for $21, they look ok but right now the Wellgo MG-1's is where it's at.

If you can suggest any other companies with plat's, that would be great!

p.s., I would prefer light, magnesium plat's please.

thx,

I'm enjoying my primo tenderizers and some other brand that looks similar and says BBB on the pedal.

thx,
I haven't priced pedals in a while, but I highly doubt you'll find those for cheaper than the brands you listed. I like my 5050s.

DMR V12's come in magnesium, but theyre $100 at least. DMR also has V8's($28.90), they grip great (ive had them) Crankbrothers 5050's are sweet, right now on Jenson for $47 (x) and $109 (xx) Azonic's (fusion) dont look as cool but they have them in magnesium for $35.95, cant beat that. Sun/Ringle have Zu-Zu's, $34.99, i like them. Truvativ Holzfeller are sweet, $72, and theyre Hussefelt is $48. Sunline V3's look good, $80.

hope this helps, i need new pedals so while helping u im helping myself too anyway, here's some links, have fun!
