....... Of these. Totally agree with the rough spinning initially. A strange factory quirk is that one pedal is relatively well greased, the other -usually the left- is not. I stripped both pairs down, a really simple job, with or without the dust cap tool, and no bike mechanic am I...... Re-greased and replaced the bearings. Used ceramic bearings in one pair, just for the hell of it and to this day, easily the best pedals I have owned. Smooth spinning, basic, bulletproof design that will likely out last the owner !

Excellent support, rain or shine.

Excellent, full width foot support for a cat like me who wears a 9-9.5, M-W sneaker/casual shoe, USA. I tried other pedals, and they all dig into my foot bottom - not wide enough. But this Touring Pedal is great. In rain, they are grippy with their ferocious teeth. And don't believe anything you hear about pedal strike with this width pedal. I have used it on my Rivendell and also my race geometry bike with no pedal strike probs to be spoken of. I would say I have had a 98% clearance rate around all corners if I pedal through them (which is a no-no anyway). I think I scraped only thrice. These pedals look really nice, too.
