1) If you want light, try some Shimano pedals or Wellgo MG-1s. If you want something that will last, get Odyssey Jim Cs.
2) Profile Race Cranks are excellent.

1) Odyssey 41 Thurmal Crank ( 3-Peice )
2) Primo Tengerizers ( Sealed )

o.o Thats light, to me. And, it depends on what you ride.

I would not go with the doteks.. I have them on my fixed gear bikes.. but you dont do anything but ride that.. and they dont come with a bottom braket.. so they are cheap, but just for arms. for the most part.. in bmx, you get what you pay for, so get something good.

Yes, because they're solid rather than hollow.

primo tenderizers are freakin heavy! Magnesium pedals if you kind find primo balance pedal if not premium mags are light. Profiles with euro bb +titanium spindle=strong and light. hope that helps.

I was thinking profile race cranks(black) and DK iron cross magnessuim pedals(black). dont profile race cranks have a life time warranty. do you think that stuff will be light

Profiel race cranks do have a lifetime warrenty.. doooont loose the receit. I wouldnt use magnesium if you are riding street.. And the tenderizers aren't heavy.. c'mon they're pedals.. And I don't like iron cross pedals and have heard bad things about them over the years, and never good things. But go with the profiles for sure.

Can't go wrong with profiles. I' m a light freak because modern bikes are much heavier than the old school jobs I'm used to. Of course they won't break in half when shooting large gaps either.As for mag on the street he may be right,I ride mostly park and ramps.But they make cool sparks on pedal grinds,lol.
