Flat pedals with Assimoa duo shi spindle

My knees have never liked being clipped in after my motorcycle accident.

Does anyone make a good flat pedal that I can use with Assimoa duo shi spindle?

I know shimano makes some combo clippless on one side and flat pedal on the other side but the flat pedal side is not very good. It's fine to ride to the grocery store but you would not want put in real power into or do a century with them.

Get the proper pedals:

I don't know of anyone else makes flat pedals that are power meters other than SRM.

Me personally if I am not going to clip-in I probably wouldn't worry about power meters unless maybe I am racing and if I was worried about power meters I would go with something crank or spider based if I was desperate for using flat pedals (not saying they are a bad thing I love the ones I have).

dang 1500 for those!!

I have tried spd, spd-sl, speed play pedals. The speed play hurt my knees the least but in the end they still hurt my knees more than flat pedals.

I don't consider my bike riding any less important than someone that can clip-in to justify power meter.

From 2020 I have gone through about 5 or 6 bikes.
All of them had different style cranks. I would have had to buy six power meters.
Currently have a Blur and Ibis. Even if the Blur and Ibis where the same manufacture for the crankset the MTB crank is longer than Gravel bike crank. So I would need to buy two power meters.

With my current Ibis with praxis carbon crankset I am thinking of swapping out the crankset to GRX in the future. I think pedal base power meters make the most sense for me. I only have to purchase it once and keep moving it to the next bike.

Shimano does make various proper flat pedals, but I have no idea if they are compatible with your Assioma's. Contact them to check if any of the Shimano flats will work. shimano flat pedals - Search (bing.com)

$1500 for a set of pedals that you can move from bike to bike to bike seems like a good deal especially for SRM which is generally rated as top quality power meters. It sounds like your decision is made, if the other pedals don't work for you and you are not looking to just go with a crank or spindle based meter those are the pedals and with the high quality you will be able to move them around for a long time.

Id probably go with those Shimano combo pedals in your original post.

Do you already have Shimano SPD-SL pedals? You can also put those on and add a platform adapter to it. Most adapters fit on the side of the pedal that locks the cleat but I found one that enables you to use either side of the pedal.

Those are kind of interesting. I wonder how well they work.

I tried these pedals. Major fail. They are fine to putz around to ride to work and back but that's it. They are just too small.
