  • Gr-9

  • now all i need is someone to say sylvans and tokens and i'm screwed ha!

  • Just also came across the MKS Urban platforms, there is much debate between these and the GR-9's regarding the the flip on the GR's breaking and the better bearings on the Urbans etc. Anyone had hands on experience ?

  • Does anyone know if BLB lockdown straps will work with DMR V8s?

  • sure why not?

  • I'd seen people posting about having to file down V8s to use similar straps elsewhere, but I guess they should be fine. Pedals are on their way, so I'll find out soon anyway.

  • mks gr-9's. lovely!

  • most flat pedals are for use with slotted cleats, mks gr9 has an actual flat surface, depending on your shoe sole the cage of other pedals can cause discomfort.

  • I've got GR-9s on my commuter, which are great, but the clips rub my toes (over-grown tendons, knarly toes, it's a hereditary thing). Has anyone ever used some of those hipster-esque straps, like people use on DMR type pedals, on the GR9?

    edit: or have any other suggestions for clipless retention, without going clipless?

  • The horizontal strap on platform pedals shouldn't rub the toe, although I would suggest also trying a much larger cage if your clips are giving you trouble.

  • It's the clips rubbing, not the straps. The thing is I think larger clips are just longer in most cases, rather than particularly taller, might be worth a try but I'd rather do away with them completely, especially as I'm considering touring with flats/straps.
