Am I the only one that doesn't get this new style of spambot?

pretty sure there's a sentient AI out there that throws these out as part of a testing algorithm to learn about human behavior (inevitably with the aim to conquer and/or enslave us).

Yeah, must be. It's collecting data based on our responses somehow. 

Cast iron pedals for the win!

Little frying pans, for the ultimate bikepacking accessory!

I can only find 6061/aluminum, alloy, and resin/plastic.

So if you want a metal that is not a alloy (or at least less than 0.1 percent carbon), you should get a blacksmith to make you some wrought iron pedals

I wonder how the troll will use that response against me

On a serious note, I've been running the plastic oneup pedals for a couple years and they're great.

Who even needs metal pedals these days?

ROBOTS NEED STEEL PEDALS (obviously). 

the 1UP plastic pedals are nice, though. got a couple sets in the familial bike fleet. light/cheap/strong - pick all 3.

Truly the best flat pedal is a Fleshlight. You'll be stuck to it like no tomorrow.

I tried plastic pedals.  They lasted me a couple of weeks.

I'm all about Chromag Dagga's.

Spam bot wants steel pedals.

YES. maybe some old syncros?

I had these. For how robust and meaty they looked, their grip was terrible. Maybe it had something to do with the shoes of the time but I remember a few near catastrophic crashes while riding these pedals.

Dammit now I really want a pair of those old Syncro pedals. Screw you AI bot for the thread prompting y9 to post them up. 

I wonder about having an updated set of those pedals 3d printed in 316L stainless...

Even with shorter 165mm crankarms I smack a lot of rocks riding E-bike cuz I'm trying to keep the motor on the boil by pedaling all the time including where I shouldn't, raceface chesters, grippy, the plastic bounces off rocks, indestructible ( according to shop bro)  fairly cheap,and they come in colors to match your kit

Weren't those Syncros pedals available in a Ti body? 

Also Brooklyn Machine Works ShinBurgers FTW!

for some reason OG shinburgers (which are dumb - stupid heavy & less grip than your average cheap pin pedal) have a rabid fan following & sell for silly $$ these days. perfect combo of rarity, aesthetics, & nostalgia, i guess.

I think that I sold mine for $5 at the NSMBA bike swap in 2013.
