    DMR V12's. They are virtually industrctable I reckon. In fact I don't actually beleive they are manufactured on the planet Earth! They can't be or my ones would have broken by now.

    Can't go wrong with V12's but get them in a funky colour for a change, for that price you could quite a smart pair of lighter magnesium but they wont be quite as indestructable.

    First off I agree with Gore. But if you really don't want spuds then I'd als go with the V12s I reckon. I have a pair of V8s, that I've not used for years as I've now got used to spds (don't think I'll ever go back), which are fantastic, but if you can stretch the extra money the V12s are supposed to be much better.

    Im planning on buying some pedals too. I took a look on the net and in one of the threads some guy kept on going on about how "fantastic" these pedals are:

    gusset slim jims for flats any day

    had v8's v12's etc. and love the slim jims and wont be going back

    ive wrecked my shins on the long pins- run long to grip enough, while the slim jims still grip well enough with the shorter pins that come with them
