So I've finally decided to switch to flats. I tried to order a set of five ten freeriders, sadly no stock in my size in the country :(, so now I'm just shopping for the pedals.

 

I know about the Saints and the Giants; what are my general options in ZA for a price limit of R1.5k?

 

Is there a big difference between completely flat pedals and ones that are more concave in the centre?

For R1500 you should be able to get very good flats.

I have a set of the giant flats and for the price they pretty good. Mine have taken quite a beating and still run smooth but if I was you and had the R1500 limit I would go for the saints. Not only do they look really good but I have only heard good things.

 

Otherwise if you a fan of blue and they still available have a look at these https://www.bikehub.co.za/classifieds/191035-hope-f20-flat-pedals/

Thanks for the suggestions.

 

 

My personal choice for R1,500 would be either the chromag low profile ones (forget the name) spank spikes or the new Kore pedals. Saints are great as well, and at a lower price point.

These things? Was looking at these and wondering if the lack of pins in the middle is going to be a huge issue.

No, there's a newer one. Slimmer... but no, just the outside ones that matter. And whatever you do, PLEASE get ones with pins that go all the way through. Otherwise rocks are gonna munch them left right and centre. Busy battling with that myself. Pins getting lost every ride.

I've been riding the snot out of a pair of Saints for just over a year now. You can't go wrong with them. I'm a big chap. When I started with the Saints I was pulling the scale at +/- 120kg. Down to 100kg as of today. Whatever flats you choose, have fun! :thumbup:
