    Default MKS EZY pedals

    Any concerns on durability on these pedals as opposed to a "fixed" pedal? Looking into investing in some of the EZY MM Cubes. TIA.

    Don't know about "road" use, I've some experience on commuting folding bikes and they show to be good, a lot more durable than the crappy pedals usually fitted by manufacturers.
    Just make sure to fit a pedal-washer on the axle, the 15mm notches get pretty close to the crank and then you will need a very thin spanner to undo them...

    Come back and post a review if you go for the EZY MM Cube. I've used the EZY AR-2 with cages and have been considering the MM Cube for ages.

    Agreed with Gattonero about washers - takes a skinny spanner to get in there otherwise.

    I will come back and give a review once I get them and get some miles on them. The record on them is surprisingly light. I just wish the system was compatible with both the MM Cube and the EZ Grip Kings. but no, they have to use separate incompatible systems.

    Probably going to be quite a while before I try these out. The combo of the wideness, the hardness to get, and the proprietary cleats means that I'm not going to use this with my S&S bike. These things don't really concern me on a day to day bike, so if/when I get a Brompton, I'll likely use these or the EZY Lamdas.

    I've been using the EZY Urbans on my Brompton (which sees a lot of use). Nice platform on one side and Time ATAC compatibility on the other. No funny noises and a solid feel. A Park SCW-15 mm spanner works fine for install.

    I think when I burn out the Look Keos I have on the Winter Bike I'll probably get another pair of studs so I can move the pedals from bike to bike.

    Good news is that MKS started including pedal washers with all the EZY pedals.

    Nice fellas, I like this on their Website News:
    To Single Speed Bicycle Riders 2008.6.30

    Single speed bicycle movement is worldwide nowadays.
    But riding a brakeless bike sometimes causes fatal accident.
    On the street, fit brakes (of course front and rear) and enjoy safety ride!
    thumbs up
