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

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.
