    Non-platform, no toe clip pedals

    Is there a decent pedal that is not a bmx type platform that will still work good without toe clips and straps? I don't ride fixed, only single speed so obviously I'm using front and rear brakes. I tried Wellgo RO-25's with toe clips and straps and am finding them uncomfortable. I am looking for another alternative to clipless, though may just have to go back to them if I can't find something else to try.

    I am wondering if something like these might work without toe clips?

    or if the tops would be too slippery, perhaps these?

    or

    Thanks.

    Look up the MKS Stream. It's a good, double-sided platform pedal that is closer to a road-pedal than a bmx pedal.

    Thanks for the suggestions! The Lambda's look interesting...

    I also looked up the Sylvan Streams and see that the width is 3" (76mm), and may be to narrow for my liking. The Wellgo RO-25's that I'm currently running are almost 85mm at their widest point and I don't think I could go any narrower than that.

    Looking into the Lambda's a bit more I found they are designed by Rivendell...

    The width on these are not that wide - looks to be about 80mm or so. I guess the support comes from the length of them.

    I went from the MKS touring pedals to MKS streams with no issues. I have size 12 feet that are pretty wide.

    You know what they say about guys with big feet..... they use big pedals

    Seriously, thanks for the measurements - it's helpful!
