Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

all black pedals

Does anyone make all black ones, cages, spindles, etc. I know TA and Sugino have versions with black cages, but the spindles are chrome.

plenty of resin body mtb cages and platforms are all-black. As a bonus they will work a ****load better with soft soled shoes.

I've seen black MKS GR-9's on eBay (Bens Cycles).

Might still have had chrome spindles come to think of it.

Ritchey makes some.
They seem to work reasonably well - & they're about 45-50 clams.

Thanks for the suggestions, I guess I should clarify, I'm looking for traditional pedals (for clips and straps), not clipless.

if you had $120 and a time machine you could have these but you'd still have to paint the spindles black
