    Do you mean MKS straps, or Dimension straps? MKS are great, Dimension are dangerously bad.

    But the real question is "can I use them with my MKS GR9 pedals"
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    I have dimension doubles because they were cheap. Thats what I needed at the time. They have been fine for a month now. I do want Toshis and have no problem forking out $110 after feeling them and understanding how much superior they are (being layered and strong). But calling the dimensions dangerous is funny. Bicycling is dangerous. If you break a strap and then crash into a bus head first because you can't stop... well, then it must be dimensions fault for making an inferrior product to Toshis. LOL

    if the cheap fake leather double straps i have are dimensions, they're okay. you won't be happy with them, though. okay they suck.
    they do. they suck.

    i bought them on a whim for like $30 at the lbs, bad decision, but that's the same Orange 20 in LA that sold me half a headset the other night and 650c tires for my $400 wheels... know it all that all but ruin every experience i have there.

    just saying. don't trust everyone who knows bike stuff, but i'm telling ya those straps suck... don't bend easily and rub on your crank really bad.
