We scoured the WWWs for the best current deals on our very favourite pedals. These aren’t cheap, nasty flats. These are the best flats at the best prices.
Flat pedals are back. The era of clipless being the ubiquitous option for weekend trail riding mountain bikers is over. Thank goodness for that. Flat pedals are more fun and more rewarding to ride. Sure, clipless is faster for racers and Strava addicts but for those of us who ride for fun and thrill, flats are the be all and end all.
