Twenty6 Ti Pedals

They look beautiful, initially traction is great, and are light.

Three days of riding, $250 later, nearly all the pins were missing or had been replaced, four of the tapped holes are broken away. These are expensive, overdesigned garbage.

Not for a DH rider that likes natural terrain! Think I'm going back to Straitline.

Try to ride evenly, looks like you bashed some rocks there with the bottom of your crank arm. Watch out!

Hey Perry. I'm not a schmuck on a bike. Shit happens when you ride hard. I'm not pedaling to the grocery store. Pedals shouldn't break that easy.

I agree with Agent P, you can tell you hit something gnarly by looking at your crank arm. Yeah, pedals shouldn't break easily, and I don't think that one did, if you don't like the thin aluminum pins, get the slightly thicker steel pins. I just ruptured my triceps tendon crashing a dirt jump, tendons shouldn't pop that easy, but the right circumstance will cause it to. P.S. photo looks worse when it's small, all you people looking at it need to zoom it, it ain't that bad, just some broken ALUMINUM pins and some anodize coating scraped off. As for the rider, I'll buy those from you at discount...what's your price?

The pedals you have there are the old Prerunners (2010) - the 2011 versions are beefed up in the spot you broke those tabs off. Unlike crappy monolithic corporations, Tyler actually listens and pays attention to improve his product. Send your pedals to the address on his website, he'll replace the pedal bodies if you managed to break anything on them!

Looks like normal damage to me. I have the same kind of marks on my crank arms and I don't even ride hard. It's just from pedaling through chunky sections. The force of a pedaling strike when simply pedaling is not that great and I assume that's the kind of force which dan subject his pedals to, despite him saying he rides hard. It's pretty rare that you strike your pedals when riding really hard through some fast techy sections and you'd definitely wouldn't get marks like that, especially with your cranks at 3 and 9 o'clock. They'd more like hit the leading edge of the pedal, or the outboard edge. I find that a crank is more like to bend than the vast majority of pedals when hit from the outside, due the leverage of the arm and how they're aligned for stiffness in the pedal rotation direction.
