Ok so my pedals keep breaking. I don't think I'm that heavy on them and I don't grind that much on them. I recently got the animal pedals and they broke. Any suggestions for pc pedals.

Fbm nice last ages for pedal slides but the platform isn't great. Demolition trooper have a nice big platform. Steer away from clear pedals, they crack easier

NEVER ride PC pedals or pegs. You will thank me in a year when you have 1- not spent more money on pegs and pedals than someone riding metal. 2- They are STRONGER by far, I suggest MTB downhill pedals. Ultra grip and strong as hell.

Either get used to spending money on breaking plastics or take shinners from metal pedals like a man ? Those are probably your options

9 months of loads of pedal slides doesn't seem that bad to me at all..... And not one slipped pedal in that time. For £15.
