The 6 inch scar on my leg represents those pedals and their evil nature. I prefer the JCPCs tbh. better grip smoother and they don't fuck up as much when you grind on them.

Much prefer JCPCs for there nearly indestructible spindle, only minor quibble with them is the wobble, but its unnoticeable once riding.

I tightened mine down pretty hard on the wobble side and it has little to no wobble since i got them last month.

Mine was cut so deep from a roof drop that i could see my shin bone thing. haha it healed but it didn't actually hurt at all. I don't think i have very many nerves or something in my shins. Like i don't feel the pain when i get a shinner but if it's on the ankle it hurts a lot. haha

I rode plastic for a while because i didn't want more of that crap, then i missed all the grip of the trail mixes then i tried JCPCs and i was in love. There isn't a much better pedal in my eyes.

I just painted my trailmixes because some of the paint had been scraped and worn off. I love them.

I had my first shiner yesterday in a while and it does hurt but it's nothing too bad. I don't think I will ever go back to plastics. The grip with Trailmixes in unreal. I may try out some JCPCs whenever I have the extra money though.

I tighten mine every so often, but they work themselves loose after a few times riding them, it's s just the nature of the design otherwise they wouldn't spin. Like I said it's my only quibble with them and it's a very minor one at that. The huge spindles and bearingless pedals are a godsend for me, they are by far my favorite pedals, I'm really looking forward to the Odyssey Dugan PCs though.

Was running primo tenderizers, switched to twisted, pedal grinds are easy now. Now I want jcpc pedals.

I love them, only slipped a pedal once since getting them and that was because my foot weren't on the pedal properly. Only gripe is they don't have any knurling as well as the pins

My Animal Hamiltons decided they wanted some flesh to eat back in 08 when I was in Louisville. Didn't wreck my jeans, but a 7 inch slice up my shin.

Metal pedals in general are alot better. I couldn't stand slipping all the time on PCs. I have a few pairs of odyssey metals. A pair of the old JCs and a pair of Trail mixes. pretty good stuff.

It's funny, because I have never had an issue with slippage on my PCs. They are like 4+ years old by now. Still plenty of pins. Also I don't grind a ton, and I don't pedal grind anymore.

They don't have knurling because they were designed with people that ride dirt a lot in mind. I currently have Hamilton metals that do have knurling, and dirt always gets stuck in them when I go to the trails.

I don't grind at all and they'd still get worn down and slip. PCs aren't horrible I just think metals are a lot better. Plus you can get grip with shoes besides vans that was one of my big problems with old pc pedals.

Exactly, knurling doesn't do anything but hold dirt and dog shit.

I have a huge scar on the outside of my left calf, where the outside corner of my old Crupi square cages literally scooped out muscle like an ice cream scoop.

They definitely grip tons, but the trade off is when you do slip....carnage ensues.

I usually wore neoprene shin guards, with removable plastic inserts. I took the plastic out and replaced them with some extra foam for a bit more padding, but I gained a lot more flexibility. The Crupis would still dig through 2 layers of neoprene and 1/2" of foam padding and draw blood! But at least it wasn't a direct hit! (the spot on my leg is just above where the shin pads end up near the knee).

I never have owned Vans and always had plenty of grip. I rocked Adios for a long time, and more recently some Osiris shoes and some Etnies.

I could see them wearing down with 100% dirt riding and having grit and stuff in your shoes, but even when I rode dirt 75% of the time there wasn't any issues for me.

I must be special because I have had most of the parts etc people hated/had problems with and I never had an issue.

I have Odyssey Trail Mixes on my new bike now, haven' had any issues with them....but I'm only starting to jump again after 8 years off. I did notice the other day that I almost couldn't pull my feet off fast enough when I looped out of a manual doing about 15mph...just barely slammed one to the asphalt and had some major toe-drag on the other....I remember distinctly feeling the Trail Bosses gripping my soles as I was going down and trying to get my feet on the fast approaching pavement!

So far, these have enough grip for my needs.

edit: Oh, and I'm wearing a newer pair of Emerica Reynolds...so that could have something to do with it.
