Orgasm, i wish i could afford them, pretty ridiculous price for pedals if you ask me, but i've never owned a pair so they're probably worth every penny.

pc's add up if you think about it though
7 pairs at about $15 bucks is a little over $100
the metals would probably be cheaper in the long run

i ride plastics cause they slide better.

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?
