Pedal Power

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Crank Brothers have been my go to pedal for quite some time now. These platform style pedals are awesome for more area to use to "crank" on. The Mallet 2 is a clipless pedal that feels like a flat pedal while clipped in. With these pedals , you get a secure feeling of no float and feeling like you are glued to a large platform. With these pedals you get that feeling you have a bit better pedaling efficiency. These are not flat, they do have a bulge from the egg beater. These can come in handy with single speeds and when you may not always want to be clipped in.
