pedals

anyone have any suggestions for some good pedals...kinda on the budget side though. Not looking to drain my pockets, but would like something with some good grip.

I am assuming that you want platform pedals. I just bought a pair of these and found them to be pretty decent for the price...check it out.

also, you can get an additional 20% off of the sale price...

good luck

If you're looking for clipless check out Shimano's PD-M520. You're probably looking at $50 or so in a shop but they can be found on the Net in the $30's. A good SPD pedal that won't break the bank.

+1 on the Shimano SPD520s. Nashbar has some similar to the SPD 520s.
