Default Re: Your Bicycle is a great hub grinder!

Oh yeah- also wanted to mention:

Notice the alloy annodized "bear trap" pedals.

I have a pair on my Peugeot PX10 as well- As a former USCF racer I thought maybe they were too clunky being so wide-

But I was anxious to finally lose the clips and straps which were always scraping the pavement when I started out- I don't wear cycling shoes anymore, and at 55 with back troubles can't ride drop bars

Anyway the old lyotard pedals finally broke and similar BMX annodized old school vintage pedals go for a mint on ebay- so these were the inexpensive light choice-

I was pleasantly surprised when I first rode them- the wide pedals actually seem to give you some kind of mechanical leverage advantage when you lean forward on them off the saddle-

And with the mX bars you can really get over them and practically fall forward-

so while I won't take any large field sprints, for my leisure and excersize purposes now, I highly recommend these pedals

search "bicycle pedals" and see dealer Abaxo on ebay for best price, a number of colors, and FAST shipping.
