    okay so here is the deal. im going to be in the market for a new set of flat pedals soon, cause well the 3 year old tiogas are gonna blow up on me soon. im getting ready to get a set of mallets for racing and a few weekend rides, but i need a set of flats for most of my weekend rides for convienance and what not. so 5050's are out because they dont have enough concave for my liking. so throw some suggestions my way and it will be greatly appreciated. ohh and the wider and flater they are the better. thanks again guys.

    There a bit expensive, but I've been really happy with my straitline pedals.

    Ive heard a lot of great things about the Forte Shovels. Most of the people who buy them from us have no complaints. I alos like the Straightlines too, so keep that as an option. Looks pretty popular :)

    Pedals are a very personal thing and everyone will give you an answer as to what feels good to them. My suggestion is to see if you can try out the different pedals that your friends have and based on that make a decision.

    Got the straitlines 3 months ago, and having used many different pedals, I have to say that these are the best I have ever used. 100% recommended !!!

    I've been using Block 8 Cage Match magnesium pedals for the past year and they are my favorite pedals yet. Super light weight and spark when you smack rocks! lol

    Kona Wah Wahs- kinda expensive
    Forte shovels- talk the guy at performance down:busted:

    the Fortes are kinda tall, but very stiff.... my only problem with them is pin placement and number... there arent enough for me...
    the Wah Wahs are promising, theyre pretty damn big, really low, really concave and have awesome grip!

    straitlines are great, i've had mine for nearly a year i think and they're amazing, the platform is gigantic and very comfortably shaped. the pins are also resistant to damage because they #1 don't thread through the bottom of the pedal and #2 don't use set screws that are easily bent or have the hole closed up by an impact. the finish is top notch, and while they'll do a job on your shins, i've found that i don't have accidental slippage in any situation really with the exception of really wet and muddy conditions. they're expensive, but i'd buy them again for sure, the guys at straitline back their products really well too.

    They have a nice big body with decent concave and a row of pins round the edge.
