    Track pedal for powergrips

    Hey, I was wondering if anyone had a decent suggestion for a track pedal that I can put Powergrips on. I currently have MKS Sylvan track pedals, but they don't have the screw holes on the back side that the Powergrips need. Something in that price range up to like $60 would be cool! I don't really want toeclips and clipless isn't really a good fit for me (not enough balls, shoes are inconvenient for utilitarian biking, and the shoes are ugly as hell!)

    Thanks!

    Why do you want track-specific pedals? There's better options for riding in street shoes.

    Like what? I love the current track pedals I have because they're very narrow and simple.

    And Powergrips because I've heard great things about them, as well as the reasons I wrote in the first post.

    you can use mks' GR9 or sylvan light, or just about any standard road quill pedal.

    Just use regular road pedals. Please, for goodness sake, just use regular road pedals.

    get some washers or different screws or something and i'm sure you can rig the sylvans to work fine. a friend of mine has powergrips on sylvans working without any issue..

    For powergrips on a trackish pedal, I'd go with the mks touring lites. Sure they're not a OMG REAL TRACK pedal, but they've got fairly narrow cages with teeth for decent foot retention.
