extremo pedals

If anyone wants a pair of these to try out, I'll make a pair of the big ones for $25, shipped. Regular-size ones for $20. Flickr mail me.

 

I like the way the skate deck cradles the shape of your foot.

These are the super-sized "Extremo" pedals I made yesterday. Riding ten minutes to work, I thought "these are way too big." Riding four hours on steep gravel, I thought "these are awesome."

    That rocks. Lots of platform.

    it looks crazy on the bike, but kind of normal on the foot.

    BikeSnobbed. My life is complete. I don't even need to see Tom Waits in concert anymore.

    I actually lost this very pedal platform in Portland on Thursday.

    Reminds me of the Bullseye Woody from many years ago.

    Yes! The Bullseye pedals and the plastic clips bike shops use to demo bikes with clipless pedals sort of mashed together in my mind to bring out the skate deck idea.

    Wow. I am stunned by the simplicity and sensibility of this design.

    periwinklekog - the Bullseye pedals, or the "now you're clipless, now you're not" skatedeck pedals?
  • beth h 5y

    Well, the whole skatedeckness of it all. What a great idea.
  • Philip Williamson PRO 5y

    I think it's a great surface for riding, with a lot of non-retentive foot retention.
