    MKS Sylvan Touring Pedals with Toe Clips

    I just got a pair of MKS Sylvan Touring pedals today from an eBay store, along with XL MKS steel toe clips. These are a steal at $45 for pedals+clips/straps. The touring pedals are serrated just enough to grip your shoes and hold them steady. They spin well, too, right out of the box. The toe clips are nice and large (I prefer larger toe clips for long distances). And the pedal platforms are nice and big with ample room to adjust your position throughout a ride. What is really special and extra nice are the straps - leather but they are extra long. Usually the Italian straps are just barely long enough and you sometimes only have a small bit of strap to pull tight. These MKS Japanese are extra long with a lot of strap to grip and pull tight. My ride today was a good ride with this new equipment - I highly recommend this combination.

    Did you get the touring/cyclocross pedals or, the touring lite pedal? They have several similar models on Ben's website.

    I got the touring/cyclecross. Some of his auctions say touring and others say touring cyclecross. Those are both the same pedal. It's different than the touring lite - the simple Sylvan touring has a completly rectagunglar shape and is somewhat larger than the lite model. And I got the basic MKS toe straps - those are the longgggggggggg ones !!

    BTW - I purchased on the 9th and received on the 11th - two day turnaround. That's my fastest ebay transaction ever !
