Before I get slated i did UTFS but couldn't find what I'm looking for. Apologies if i'm reviving an old thread
I currently have a pair of mks sylvan track pedals on my bike and I have a couple of problems with them:
So I'm looking for something wider with less grip. Any advice?
mks gr 9's perhaps? prob not wide enough though, i found them quite narrow on my measly uk8's
mks ar2 seems to be without the little peg on the outside, could be good
Used to have a pair of these before which i really liked, worked will with sneakers
right then, back to work perhaps
Work's boring. What about BMX pedals with clips? Loads of room on those, and you can remove the pegs to make them less grippy
What size clips are you using? Also, what shoes? IT sounds like you are wearing running shoes, and if so yes, the rough/studded treads on the soles will get caught on the edges of the pedals (and they also are very wide). Maybe try a smoother-soled shoe? I have about the same size foot, use MKS Sylvan track and L size MKS clips with these shoes:
and have no problems (above is the Quoc Pham fixed shoe).
@kboy Thanks man!
Yea i think the g9s are about the same width. Those Dura Ace pedals are sweet but waaay out of my price range!
I was using a set of DMR v12s before and they worked a treat. I wanted some foot rentention though so i got a pair of restraps. I couldn't get used to them, again the big feet doesn't help. I never thought about removing the pins and adding clips, that might work.
My clips are LL. They might be a bit long actually as they scrap off the ground when I wheel the bike.
I wear nikes, a few different pairs, but yea they're all very grippy.
That shoe looks like it'd do the trick but i don't really want to get cycling specific shoes, i reckon i'd be better going clipless if i was to go down that route
Onza Double cage Pedal
These are wider than MKS Sylvans and grippy without being excessively grippy like DMR V8's or BMX pedals. I had them for a while, pretty good.
I've asked in the AQA thread but will use this thread to ask too, anyone know of a decent source of size large or xl toeclips to fit shimano 600 pedals?
