    Performance Bikes' Forte Campus Pedals are good (IMO) budget two sided pedals, SPD one side, platform the other or do you mean double-SPD sides?

    Caliper/Levers, *shrug* upto you, you can get all kinds of choices. I'm using a Tektro RL720 cross lever (which many folks think are crap - I've never had a prob yet) on one bike and an old drop lever (without the suicide lever part) inverted on some flop/chop bars on another. Depends what you want look-wise/bike-wise.
