Well i would take them off you bike and use them as paper weights that all there gd for really. Buy some new pedels, get dmr v12's ive had them over 5 years greased them twice and left them to there own devices they are the tits. Dont get v8's there cheaper yes, but with that saving you loose so much. v8's to me seem like going from a zoo/echo/koxx to a proffeshional/promax/carrera or any other shit frame. Spend that lil bit more and good will you love the results. (mabey not the shin attacks but :- )

Enjoy

My freak factory pedals have been through some real tough riding for 8 years now from my two brothers and me, on two different bikes...

They have also stripped two crankset threads...

They keep taking my riding too...

After riding my mate's t-mag I was unsure whether to get onza shin digs, as if you fall off they are EXTREMELY painful... I think DMR V12's (or mag V12's if you can afford it) are your best bet...

The stock pedals are crap on the t-birds, my friends fell to bits. I would recommend the DMR V8's. I have had two pairs, both for over a year and they are incredible value for money. The bearings last ages (I never grease mine either) and they are solid, look good and are fairly light. As mentioned above, you could spend the little extra and go for the V12's, but the only advantage is they weigh less.

haha i am completely the opposite to 'flower'.

i would recommend you don't buy expensive pedals, they simply don't last and aren't worth the money. v12's and v8's last just as long as a set of wellgo v8 copies that cost about a £10.

i never break the bearings, however the studs either get punched back into the pedal wrecking the threads or they wear down. the v12's punched through the threads. i am more happy to buy a new set of pedals every 6 months at £10 than replace a £40 quid set!

your other option is vp's equally cheap but i just dont get on with them.

Yeah, I'm with hiltop on this one. There's no real point in buying expensive pedals because you WILL kill the pedal body before the bearings reach the end of their life. Wellgo V8 copies, Shindigs, VPs, they're all very cheap n chearful really.

Unless you're a big pimp, there's no point in spending more than £20.

I know pretty much everyone sticks by DMR v8s/v12s due to there 'so-called' strength, but i think they bend fat too much, and dont grip when your feet are wet.

I stick by my good old vp duoble caged pedals, as well as other riders do.

£12 for a set, last about 2-3months, then the grip starts to go( especially if you ride BIU on rocks, or sidehop to pedal).

i think the life of your pedals all depends on how often you use your bash. my mates have found that when they are going up walls and they use thir bash it takes the teeth off thier pedals.

i say be a man and dont use your bash, makes your pedals last longer and looks better.

also get pedals with closed bearings and dont spray them too hard with a pressure washer. (not good).

I bought my onza hognesiums at the bike show earlier this year and they are still going strong, i have lost 1 pin out my left pedal and 2 out my right one though. But i do land quite heavy some times on my pedals and have completely obliterated a pair of dmr v8's.

however they aren't cheap pedals at £30 bike show price or £35 evrywhere else, but i am very pleased with them.

My Pedals have lasted Very well, i have a set of Atomlab Aircorp, i have had them for almost 2.5 years, and only in the last couple of months have the bearings started to go, which has caused some slack in them, and the occaisional clunk when i pedal, sor for a set or £55 pedlals they have lasted longer than a set of V8's etc, meaning i would have had to have brought another pair, making it just as expensive (Y)

Not 100% sure what i will be getting next though :S looking at the Hognesiums, but my pedals have to completely die first :P
