I was amazed. I had no idea people actually bought platform pedals. I thought those were just what came with most bikes and that is what you had until you swapped them out for something else.

well most road bikes even a few of the entry level ones, don't come with pedals, the show either puts on nylon platforms, nylon toe-clips

I have the metal platforms with spikes on them. I don't like the idea of being tied to my bike.
