    +1 on the Wellgo MG-1s. I bought some for Ride The Lobster, used them there, and they've been on my MUni ever since. Great grip, great weight.

        I'm putting together a new 29er and collecting parts. I was wondering what pedals to get. Since this thread is old I was wondering if there are any new pedals out there that I should be looking for? It's a budget build so I'm looking for best pedal for the money. What's a great value in Muni pedals?

          The best pedal for the money is the plastic Odyssey Twisted PC, which is a fine pedal for $14 or so if you can live with plastic.

          I would definitely avoid the Wellgo sealed bearing pedals as they have a cheesy little retaining clip that's the only thing holding the pedal on the axle; it will break on you and you'll be riding the spindle home.

          The Deco PC2 pedals are reasonably cheap metal pedals if you prefer that. Or the Odyssey Trail Mix, but I don't like that pin style.

            Check out the pedal thread in the review forum.

            My next pair are prob Nukeproof Electron or similar (there are several cheaper copies) or their ti Mag Protons but I have serious doubts if 100g is worth $150 extra.

            Ride everywhere and never just ride anywhere. If you can ride where you are going within a hour, do it, and if you can do a trick 50-75% of the time do it along the way.- Bob Burnquist

                The best pedals I've used for muni are the CRC Nano Tech Flats by Superstar. They are very similar to Nukeproof Electron.

                I think they're much better than the Wellgo MG1 and Wellgo V8 copys that I've also used. The MG1 lose the pins easily.

                When riding in snow I prefer the Wellgo Bear Trap Platform MG-26 pedals because they do not lose their grip due to snow and ice like most pedals.

                      I count 14 pedals there, so my guess is 7.

                        I like my Twenty6 Predators. You can get them in cromo axle or Titanium axle (the latter of which comes in super awesome colors and you can customize the color of the traction pins too). The traction pins are designed to brake off, you remove them with a small allen tool, then add new ones. That way the pedal stays fresh and you still have awesome grip...AWESOME grip. With my 5.10s, I've had scary moments wherein I could not remove my foot from the pedal faster than my unicycle could fall. Downside: They're crazy expensive, but IMO worth it.

                        Here are pics:

                          Ow.
                          My shins start hurting just from looking at those screws.



                          I'm really liking the 1 set of Diety compound pedals I bought. Thin, light, available and easily replaceable studs, pedals and spindles. I suspect all my unis will end up with these eventually.

                            +1 All my unis have deity/nuke proofs now. Tough, low profile, grippy but not super pretty.

                              They remind me a bit of the Specialized I got for my 24":


                              So grippy. Not too heavy.

                              The 29" has Nuke which are very light, but only slightly less grippy.

                                Image Below
                                Best i have ever owned or used. And that is a lot...

                                Nukeproof Neutron Mag-Ti Flat Pedals:

                                Low-profile parallelogram design
                                10 replaceable and adjustable pins per side
                                CNC machined for improved strength-to-weight ratio
                                New graphics for 2013

                                2 x high quality DU bushings & 4 x sealed cartridge bearings (Per pair)
                                Body: Custom CNC-machined magnesium
                                Dimensions: 98mm (w) x 99mm x 17mm
                                Axle: Titanium
                                Weight (per pair): 294g

                                Mag/Ti are a little pricey when not on special but the alloy/ stainless axle ones i have also have lasted years without servicing and around $60 for these which you can replace the axles, sealed bearings and pins try them first before sifting through the many available often wasting money and gathering shin gouges.

                                You can only know if these are any good yourself by giving them a go. I have 2 pairs Mag/Ti and
                                1 pair Al/Stainless

                                If you get some because of me and dont like them with good reason let me know and i will buy them from you for setting you wrong?!
