Fitbikeco pedals

hi i just purchased these pedals.bmx with sealed bearings. because they are sealed bearings does that mean they will last longer? is there any kind of extra care i should take to make them last longer?i have gone thru 3 sets of cheaper pedals and i want these to last. has anyone used these pedals before?

They may help. We see a lot of BMX bikes at my co-op, and in my experience what tends to kill BMX pedals is that the bearings come loose and develop play, which then causes them to wear out prematurely because the owner doesn't get them tightened up soon enough. The word "sealed" is an inaccurate term, as almost all pedal bearings have some form of seal on them, but if the pedal's you've bought use cartridge bearings, then they should be immune to the failure I described above.

As for care, don't do what half the kids who bring BMXs down to my co-op do, and spray all your bearings with WD40. That just dissolves the grease, and doesn't help.

Also, nice profile picture.
