Where to ask questions on riding skills, training, nutrition, and bike repair


Postby PmB » May 27th, 2013, 2:42 am

Debating on running some platforms for the summer and wanted to see what everyone would suggest,
trying to keep them under 100$.

Considering something like:
* Superstar Nano Techs
* Shimano PD-MX80 Saint Platform
* twenty6 prerunners ($$$)
* Atomlab Pimplite WRX ($$$)

Wellgo MG-1. Basic, cheap, effective.

the twenty6's are nice.

I like the canfield crampons, I also run some VP pedals that have a nice thin body and a million studs to keep my feet in place.

I don't like the wellgo because they don't have as many studs, they are a wide/thick body, and they don't hold up to rocks as well as some others. That said, if you don't smack them on a lot of stuff, don't mind the additional width, and have some good shoes they work just fine. The price is right, but there are better pedals out there, you'll just pay more for them.

while not under 100, Canfield crampon ultimates are great. Super comfy and thin. Even with next to no pins i was not having any traction issues (use locktite on then pins)

I have had my set on one bike since I went to Moab in November and have been to lazy/unmotivated to swap them back out. I just rode Mohican over the weekend with them, and 0 issues
