Just took a look at the Catalina v1.5 and they look pretty sweet.. much cheaper than hold fasts too! Definitely gonna consider those for my next pedals. Has anyone used both the Catalina's and hold fasts and can chime in on how they compare? Thanks!

I have a bunch of combos between my primary bikes
volume cutter => hold fast & demolition platform pedals
pista concept => toshi doubles & mks custom nuevo with all city dual gate cage/ speedplay zero (if clipless)
vigorelli => speedplay zero/ toshi doubles & mks rx1 & all city dual gate cage
paddywagon (commuter) => toshi doubles & mks sylvan track & all city nylon double clips
orca (primary roadie) => speedplay light action

Using white industries platform pedal + toshi singles + mks steel clips.

The best pedal to ride with normal shoes, just depends if you want to spend the money.

I was using Origin8 Pro Track Pedals, which I really enjoyed for the double sided use, but since getting catalina's I would prefer something with a bit more grip...

I got some Platform pedals for free from my LBS though that I threw onto the Madison, Looks like Carp but it's a lot easier to slip my foot in and feels more secure... I'll probably end up getting nice platform pedals that don't look so wonky

What other far less expensive pedals? Aside from Mks gr9's, they are pretty much the same deal as the white industries, but much more narrow.

These pedals look sick. But that ridge is so high. Would either dig hard into your foot, or put your foot at a strange angle. Unless you are wearing slotted cleats, in which case these pedals would be awesome and your foot is going nowhere.

I had ones like these on an old schwinn that felt great... but the clips were plastic and one broke off. When I asked about getting a new one, my co-op said it would be a tough find... This was maybe 4-6 years ago... I'd definitely buy them again new though... I loved those pedals.

My co-op is have at least 4 pairs of those type of pedals, all of them are Shimano 600 and I think there's a Miche too.

Anyway, <3 co-ops.
