e*thirteen Spin Control Pedal and Steve Peat Signature Chainguide

Aug 16, 2012
by Richard Cunningham  
E*thirteen was on hand at Crankworx showing its good-looking LG1 flat pedal that features a replaceable snap-on deck that is retained by 11 removable pins on each side of the pedal. A set of four and seven-millimeter pins are shipped with each pedal and 'flat,' one-millimeter pins are offered as an option for those who want less grip. Bearings are Delrin bushings that run relatively friction free, and can be preloaded to provide a metered amount of friction for dirt-jump stability.

e thirteen Lg1 pedals

E*thirteen's LG1 pedal features replaceable pins and decks to keep them looking fresh. The hidden bonus is its adjustable spindle friction.

e thirteen LG1 pedal details

Replaceable pins also fix the deck in place. Flat pins (shown on left) are an option, and a full set of 4mm and 7mm pins are included with the kit. The snap-on deck plates are visible in the profile view (right).

E*thirteen calls the friction system Spin Control and it is activated with a Torx T-25 wrench at the outer end of the pedal shaft. A set screw is loosened, which allows the user to turn a gold-anodized barrel adjuster to set the desired amount of friction (or to free the bearings spin without resistance). Once set, the Torx screw is re-tightened and the pedal is ready to rock. E*thirteen says a pair of LG1 pedals weigh 468 grams and cost $129 USD. Presently, decks are available in black or white, and new colors will be arriving soon.

e thirteen friction adjustment

To adjust the spindle friction, the Delrin bushings are pre-loaded. (clockwise from upper left). 1 - secure the pedal axle in the bike or with a 6mm Allen wrench. 2 - loosen the Torx T-25 stop screw. 3 - add or subtract friction by threading the gold adjuster barrel at the end of the shaft by turning it with your fingers. 4 - re-tighten the Torx stop screw to secure the adjustment.

Like? Pinkbike is presently doing a long-term test on e*thirteen's LG1 pedals. Watch for it.

Steve Peat Signature LG1 Chainguide

e thirteen Steve Peat LG1 chainguide

Here it is: the first of 350 limited edition Peaty-signature LG1 chainguides.

Only 350 e*thirteen LG1 chainguides will be sold, engraved with Steve Peat's signature and in red and black - the champ's favorite colors. Each will be numbered and five will be hand signed by Peaty to be randomly tucked into five lucky customer's shipping box. E*thirteen says that the signature guide will be sold for $159 USD. This is number one.

The back side of the guide is numbered in series. We wonder who will be the lucky ones to receive the five random guides that Peaty autographs?

 personally i'd almost be annoyed to get a hand signed peaty chainguide, as there is no way i'd be putting it on my bike. it would go straight on the wall and i'd have to go out and buy another guide.

 I intended to buy one as a display piece anyway.

 I have allways just added nylon spacers to pedals that spin too fast , friction is hardly rocket science Razz

 I have the pedals...they are really nice and if you run a combo of the 4mm in the middle and the 7mm on the corners they are grippy as F*** with some 5.10 rubber!

 I dunno - I like the look of the guide but dont like pro signatures on my bike , stuff like Atherton Racing gear Steve Peat Signature doesn't look right to me as I will never be as quick as those guys it just seems a bit arrogant to fit it to my bike

 in all honestly by the looks of it once its installed on your bike it will just look like a normal chain guide, no point making it look all pretty if its going to get hidden away and thrashed my a chain.

 That gold sig ain't gonna get removed by no chain and if it does it ain't dpin it's job very well

 I'll stick with the lg1 I allready have. I figure I'll sign it myself and sell it for next to nothing. We can call it the working man limited edition. Love peaty but I'd rather buy a video and watch him rather then buy his chain guide so I have to turn my bike upside down to show everybody the signature that is wearing off.

 loving the guide, pedals not so much. Im sure they preform well but look wise tho, not for me.
  • 4 1
 They look like they would have the same problem as many other pedals which is that the body is thinner than the axle. If you want to gain most power out your legs then position the balls of your feet in the middle of the pedal is best. But when the axle protrudes from the body of the pedal, the balls of your feet still sit on it fine but obviously your toes bend upwards as do your heels, just enough so that they don't apply much force onto the pins meaning you aren't actually getting that much grip.

 I love mine, they grip good , nice wide platform , and the control actually works. They float over rock gardens with ease and the provide good feedback to your feet . Not even 1 slight crack or broken piece anywhere .

 The only way to use this chainguide is to put it on the wall with the photoframe made of bike chain=)
Maybe, there's no point to set it on a bike, cause the signature will be covered...but...always good to know it's there =)

 Just got these pedals yesterday and they are so tight that they will not even spin. I have tried adjusting them exactly as e thirteen describes in the instructions and in their videos online, but they are just as tight as before. I'm sure they are great pedals when they work, and maybe I just got a bum set? Calling e thirteen on Monday but if anyone has any suggestions that would b greatly appreciated.

 nice to see Dr. Peat getting some more signature goodness

LG-1 easily the most reliable chain device I have even owned (I had several on different bikes) because it retains the chain 100% secure and does not pack with mud between bash and chainring, like the older E13 SRS device I also owned several of...

the "open-ness" of the guide with the exposed chainring also makes cleaning very easy, which is important to riders living in wet / muddy conditions needing to properly clean their drivetrain on a regular basis

 Its just going to look like a red and black chainguide when theres a chain ring on it though...?

 same here and if for some reason you hit a rock the pins break away and you can get the base out and replace them easily.
