Presume you want flats...for around that pice (a bit cheaper actually) you can't beat DMR V8's. Rebuildable, grease port, comes in lots of colours.

Sorry, I need to disagree. If you ride hard then V8's have multiple issues. The bearings go within a couple months and the paint chips off instantly. You get what you pay for in other words.

If you want a quality pedal that'll last for years, go Shimano DX. I've got a mate who's had his for 3 years now, not a single issue with them. Won a few races on them, so it's not like he pussy foots around.

My two cents :)

I agree with speedy. V8's are slightly meh. I have been running these:

for the last wee while and have had not a single thing wrong with them, 120 bucks, sealed bearings, big pins, light. Been smashing em on rocks all throughout the national series and they are still straight and spinning freely, decent size pedal body aswell :)

Yeah those ABD snipers look well mint. Tioga MX Pro's would probably be around that $120 mark as well.

you could get your LBS to get you some of these http://www.keywin.com/bmx.html
I have had the mag version for 3 years and they have been mint. I have just bought another pair for my other bike. Only lost 1 pin due to rockstrike. They have one sealed bearing inboard and a nylon bushing outboard. I have opened them up once to grease the bushing and it was super easy. You will also be supporting a NZ based company.

I had some Funn pedals. They were grippy and strong, but the pins had fallen out on one side of each pedal (previous owner). If you don't ride near rocks it would be a good pedal.

Yes these are good, I also had the mag version and apart from the platform being slightly too small for my liking they are very good as well.Light and easy to service, good pins as well. also around the 100 buck mark :thumbsup: .

Had the magnesium pedals too - coupled with a pair of five-tens and they were brilliant.

Context to that photo, the resulting smash into the rock busted up a toe and mashed the rest of my foot for a few months. I doubt any other pedal would have held up to that. I would have no issue running flatboys again (I would have replaced them with more flatboys but I picked up some cullys instead)
