    oh. cool . quick question: what are some criteria for good pedals? was wondering because i've read that a lot of people advocate switching out the pedals that come with the kilo tt, but i still ride mine. i was curious what a 'better' pedal has to offer.

    I haven't ridden clips/straps for a while now but those pedals actually seem pretty nice to use.

    I have the White Industries pedals in black - they're awesome... super quality, really tough, and comfy as hell. It was hard to swallow the price (8x the price of MKS GR-9's, as an example), but it's nice to buy from and support a small company that makes killer parts. And not to start a "Made in USA" OT discussion (there are quality pedals and parts from all over the world), but if that's something you're into, they are that.

    white industries does not make bad stuff. yeah they are pricey, but i have never regretted anything i've bought from them.
    before posting, a "noob" should always ask themselves "could this have been answered by first visiting Sheldon Brown

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    French thread.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
