Question about DMR v12's

hey guys, well im planing to upgrade my pedals, currently im using VP BMX flats that came with the bike, i use indoor trainers pretty much 90% of the time im on the bike so they do stick pretty well, just have this tendincy to slip still in slight moist conditions, oviously every pedals gona slip to some degree once it gets wet right?

well i was hopping to upgrade to some DMR v12's, if anyone has any experince with it, how much more 'grip' could i expect if its possible to decribe,

few questions on the actual pedals though, since its my first one with replacable pins on it, if they do for whatever reason fall out, or break/grind somehow, (speaking as 'what if') can i purchase some more?

second, is there any diffrence between the v12 and the v12 magnesium besides the weight diffrence? (and the price)

and lastly, do they have a homepage? i've been searching the web for over a week and cant find anything, oh, and do they have any dealers in canada? cause everything seems to be from the uk and it ends up costing about $112 cnd.

thanks for the help

I got a set about two months ago and I've noticed quite a difference to the pedals that came with my bike.

As you push the pedal round you can feel the spikes biting into your shoe allowing more energy to be put into the pedal.

For the price they are very good pedals.

I have v8's and they're alright, they eat your legs though, so be careful...
