Those pedals are junky, but your going cheap so it doesnt really matter.

Do you have 1 peice cranks or three peice?

You're stupid. I don't think there is anyone that has ever used those pedals that actually liked them.

Tale of 2 pedal choices

Is the DK distortion smaller than the Odyssey JC? I wear a size 13 shoe and a small pedal wont cut it. I've seen the JC in person, but there aren't any DK dealers unless a long drive is in store. The JC is adequate in size, but I'd like the lightness of the DK if it isn't too much smaller.

Please, anyone know the answer/dimensions?

Just get the jim c's. The weight difference will be barely noticable, and the odyssey pedal is a far better, and more durable pedal.

The DK uses a funky design as far as I know - I think it has a bolt to tug on the pedal spindle that fastens to the other side of the hole in the cranks, and won't work if you have cranks with a closed hole. I might be thinking of a different one, though.

I also really doubt any pedal can come close to the Jim C for the price (or many for any price)

Have you considered the Mag Jim C's?

MM2K, you are thinking of the right pedal. I was considering the Magnesium of each brand.

I've read consumer reviews that JC's shafts will bend. The DK's sport 14mm axles, and in theory, would hold up better under my weight. Thus it's down to size...

My original post is asking the overall size of the DK vs. JC's. I need a large surface area.
