Got a brand new YT Tues CF about a month ago, winter just hit PA so I pretty much got it at the worst time since I will have to wait till April or so till bike parks open.

Gonna purchase some Crankbrothers Stamp 7's soon and already have fiveten shoes laying around, but was just a bit curious what everyone else out there runs? What kind of pedals, Large or Small? Flats or Clipless? Aluminum or composite? Could make for a good discussion.

Spank Spike flats with 5.10 Impact VXI. Super grippy.

Spank Oozy (flat pedals) with Adidas Terrex Trail Cross SL.
My feet are glued to my pedals.

Hope F20 and 5 10 freeride highs
I was using HT pedals but they are junk and horribly sealed.

Pretty interesting everyone here so far has flats, has anyone gave clipless a shot? I personally love riding clipless for trail riding and xc type stuff. But for DH it just sketches me out, for an emergency bail situation.

I ride saint clipless pedals and afton vectals half of the time.

The other half I like saint flats with 5.10s

Ridden flats and clipless. Currently on flats, DMR Vault and the Sam Hill 5.10 shoes. Shoes are heavy and offer very little pedal feel, but they do keep my feet from hurting after a full day at the park, unlike my freerider shoes. Guys I ride with like to stop and scope out lines and do more walking than normal to reride a section so I use flats, although I'd probably prefer to be in clipless. I'd say 90% of the DH bikes I see are flat pedals.

Back in the day I tried them for aggressive riding.....not for me. I do run SPD on my road, fixed, XC bikes. Everything else is flats.

I got the high top version and they are great on vaults and have enough grip for any hike a bike stuff.
