plastic fly ruben pedals?

5/29/2010 9:33 PM

alright. so the bearings in my odyssey twisted pc pedals are crusty and loose like \BMX-1995/s vagina because i over tightened them the wrong way once, i was thinking about getting plastic fly ruben pedals.

since i didnt see a review on these yet, i just wanna know if any of you guys have any experiance with these pedals? they look really good, and they look like theyve got some good concave.

i havent heard much about them, but im interested in finding out if theyre worth it!

remember its the plastic ones, not the metals.

thanks!

im alex, and i like to ride my bike.

i have em theyre pretty good.
only problem is sometmes when i pedal in the same place everytime theres a little pop but i heard thats just an imperfection in the bearings.
and sometimes my left pedal comes loose. but its on the right side so idk, probably put too much grease on it.
i have a slip side on the left and thats about it. theyre pretty legit so get em. and they come in a cool package Wink

and the package is a white box with a lid that says fly ruben on it with green and when you open it , it elegantly showcases the two pedals

Im not sure theyre aftermarket either. But mine feel great and your feet stay on them for the most part. The pins are also big and square for great traction.

hmm...they look kindof cool actually i like how flat they are. but theyre kinda like a saggy pair of tits how plain they look without knurling or nothing.

no you shouldnt
they come with sealed bearings so the shell around that is metal and as we all know metal is stronger than plastic.
so what happens is the metal starts to ovalize the plastic and then the pedal comes loose.
thats why they sell extra pedal bodies

pedals are win. They're a little on the small side but they're light strong and mega grippy even on old worn shoes. :D

FTW!

no they sell extra pedal bodies because they want you to buy pedal bodies when you grind the pins down.


my input to this thread is to buy the shadow nostra pc pedals. almost completely solid, massive pedal platform, massive pins.

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.
