Need new pedals

I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on a good set of pedals for my commuter. I am looking for something with great gripping abilities, don't want to go clippless right now or use toe clips. Back when I road trails alot I used BMX style pedals (Bear traps) and really liked them. I have seen some of the newer large platforms that have the little studs on the platform, I have actually ridden a friends bike with this type of pedal and seemed to really like them. What are my options, what would you guys recomend. My bike is a specialized Hardrock Sport that has been turned into a street/commuting bike. Thanks for any info

the platforms with studs are called bmx style, the bear traps are just bear traps or cages

if you don't want to do youself the favor of clipless just go with the bmx pedals you liked, they should be available at just about any shop

If you are actually considering going clipless in the future then you might as well do it now. You won't regret it.
