Doesn't hurt anything, though. Plus it makes you look like a REAL biker, and not just Fred with pristine top-of-line parts, with not one speck of mud or a scratch.

Personally, I don't think its worth the extra cost ($50+?) just to get a better finish on the pedals.
I've been tempted to take a drill-mounted wire brush to my black Time Z's. I don't mind the paint scratches but it seems the paint is a little slippery. If I brushed off the paint I think they'd be (just about) the same as the Control Z's; not quite as elegantly machined but close. Yes?
