A crash on my trek 7.2fx, new pedals?

I took a tumble today on accident as I wasn't paying attention. I damaged one of my pedals so needless to say I need new pedals now. Any suggestions for pedals for my 7.2fx charcoal grey? My brakes also need to be adjusted because the pad is touching the rim of the bike without the brake lever being touched. I don't have the proper tools so I'm going to have to take it to the LBS. Any suggestions for new pedals?

Well not too hurt, just scraped up my hand because i put it down to break my fall. Thanks for your concern though sherillinn. I don't ride with cycling shoes so can someone offer some advice on new pedals with regular shoes? thanks.

If you liked the pedals you have, just get them, they're fairly cheap, wellgo is the brand I believe. If not, just go to the LBS and see what they have, anything should work fine really, as long as you don't completely cheap out. Glad to hear you're okay.

Thanks, yeah I like the pedals I have but I cannot find them for the life of me. I guess I'll check out Wellgo and see if they have the same pedals.

As far as your brakes are concerned, my experience in a case like this was that the accident knocked the wheel out of true. If this is the case, the shop will do a wheel truing. In my case, it cost me $15 to true both wheels.

I haven't tried them, but I heard these are pretty good pedals with regular shoes and cycling shoes. You can flip them and use one side with regular shoes.

I installed the Shimano PD-M324 Clipless/Clip Pedals on my FX 7.3 which allow for either regular or biking shoes. I've made the transition and I'm now more comfortable riding clipped in with the biking shoes. Had to dust myself off this week after taking a spill for not paying attention and thrown off balance by a bush Luckily, at the time I was wearing regular shoes during a casual ride and not clipped in.
