Go for it. The Flys are great pedals. I may go for the PC pedals because I do not have a never-ending wallet.

Fly pedals are terrible. The spindles bend so easily. As far as grip goes, they're OKAY. Not to mention light. Most people just end up switching to Hamiltons and are happy, anyhow.

Flys are too expensive and the Twisted aren't good if you do the least bit of grinds; mine only lasted a week, even though the only time I used them was for Luc-E stalls.

Animals are good too though.

I still say stop doing pedal grinds, get smooth, and get some Wellgo MG-52's or Mg-1's.

Animal pedals blow compared to the jim c's. They crack way easyer, and the grip is horrible after a couple weeks of riding. There is only one rider I know of around here who actually likes his, but they are still fairly new.

A lot of people rock Animal pedals over here and no one has ever had a problem with them.

Mind you, I've ridden before and I still talk to all of them. I also rode my bike on Thursday.
