Pedal Grinding

What are good pedals for grinding? Right now I have the regular black Nimbus studded pedals. If I just remove the studs on one side will they be good for grinding?

Yes taking out pins on one side will help out for grinding a lot! You can take a grinder to the pins or take them out with an allen wrench.

The best pedals I like are plastic ones. They are quite when you grind so security guards and store owners dont know you are around! I enjoy the JC/PC pedals the most though, they are in multiple pieces so once you grind through one side you just have to by a half body vs an entire new pedal.

I took mine out with a pair of pliers. They just unscrew, so grip them with the pliers (made easier by the hex-shape) and turn. You'll probably only grind with one foot, so it makes sense to only take the pins out of one pedal. Also, if you do what I did and only take them out of one side of the pedal, you can still have grip for your shoes and still be able to grind.

Oh wow! Thats awesome :O I had no idea there were such pedals. That's a street riders must have pedal :O.

And yeah generally you only need one foot/pedal to grind on. Unless you're like me, the only grinds I don't do are blind+switch grinds.
