A great set of pedals for those who don't use clip-in pedals. Wide platform, with pedal cages that offer some "bite" to prevent your foot from sliding. Useable with any shoe- even sandles. Accepts standard toe clips and straps. Designed as a "touring" pedal these are also great for Cyclocross, Commuting, Off-road or just riding around the neighborhood with the kids. Forged aluminum body with re-placeable aluminum alloy cages, chrome-steel spindles - NO PLASTIC! - unlike most "disposable" pedals out there today. Made in Japan by Mikashima. Standard 9/16" threads to fit almost all cranks.
