 Still have my $30 Wellsgo pedals from 2002. I just replace the allen grubs once a year or when they fall out.

These manufactures need to add justifications why the charge so much. Eg. what aoneal says, "$100 for the pedals and $95.99 to stamp "Lacondeguy" in the middle".

 Deity compounds have no grip. They are convex. They are cheap, but a terrible downhill pedal unless you are into having low grip. I think the new v12 will be my next pedal.

 That's what I'm basically running right now @BenParfitterole

They unbelievably grippy with the pinkbike tapped + screwed mod, albeit very tankish, and admittedly very square. The v12 will be a nice upgrade for me as my pedals do a lot of revolutions and the weight is a worthwhile factor.

 Xpedo Spry >300g, >$60, ultra thin

I have been using since 6/14. Paint has rubbed off on spindle, one pin has sheared off, very minimal "play" on body to spindle.
I was looking at flats for 2 years when these came on the scene last year. They are worth a look. C'mon, >$60?

 I think its safe to say that in comparison to the V8 or V12, they aren't going to compare in longevity, but otherwise not bad, aside from a lack of pins in the middle of the pedal.

 most high intensity sports do use supplements for lactic acid called called beta-alanine. Lactic acid "is a bad thing" when you're training your muscles to be able to handle a higher work load than your competition.

 The hip pack idea seemed ridiculous on the surface, then I realized that for those 30-60min after work rides it would get my big Evoc pack off my back.... Hmmmmmm....
  • 8 1
 @Fat-Pants showed me the way with how good hip packs are at Morzine last summer.

Big enough to carry essentials, small enough to not be annoyingly hot.

 you do not want excess weight on your kidneys or sciatic nerve especially when eating dirt.

 raceface has one for 30 or 40 bucks
  • 2 0
 My solution for 30-60min after work rides is to attach it to the bike, or go without. I'd rather walk out, than futz with a tube on a ride that short. FWIW, people seem to ignore there's some uber small packs for short rides as well: I've got a Osprey Raptor 6 that I picked up on clearance(Steep & Cheap) that fits everything needed for a couple hour ride, & is far less annoying than a "real" pack. Only paid $40 or something.
  • 4 1
 I went with a dueter hip pack that holds the essentials plus a small water bottle. I forget I have it when riding and remember it when I need it. People dog the fanny pack but it works well instead of hauling a huge pack for longer days on a 30-90 min jaunt
  • 6 2
 The Swat bib from Specialized or the similar one from Race Face is the way to go homies
  • 2 2

 + 1 for SWAT Bib.

It is honestly second only to a dropper post in improving my riding and enjoyment.

I have two pairs of SWAT Bibs. Great lightweight material. Thin but well designed chamois. The pockets are invaluable.

For rides sub 2 hours: 1 bottle on the bike. Tool and keys in hip. Phone, CO2, tube, snack in back pockets.

2+ hours: Bottle on the bike. Tube strapped to frame. Same as above plus a snack in back pocket.

f*cking awesome.

It has made me manage my water so much better. I drink a full bottle before riding and make sure to hydrate well everyday. Sometimes i barely touch my water. With a Camelback, i used my water as a crutch. What i really need is Air to breathe! Not a liter of water sloshing around my stomach!

 Since when did Fanny Pac change her name?
  • 1 2
 All these small packs would be much more appealing if my bike could hold a water bottle.
What gets me most is the screws are still there, they are just too close together to fit a cage. WTF?
  • 1 0
 People take a pack to go out for an hour? What's in it? I thought packs were for day rides.

Edit: @J-McBride
I have a cage which appears to have an option for two holes slightly closer together. Always wondered what it was for, as I thought all b/c spacings were standard.
  • 2 0
 @tobiusmaximum, I have one Evoc pack that has tools, CO2, tubes, hydration, and back protection. Easier to grab that and go than move things or have a separate short ride pack. It's just convenient in that sense, especially on after-work rides when I'm running out of daylight. But with summer coming it may be worth getting something smaller/lighter.

  • 2 1
 I have the deity compounds and the dmr's (got the original black ones for $100 not the bs retail price) the only difference is grip and they are metal. I do like the dmr's better, they feel more solid, but i would say the compounds are the better deal.

 Compounds are great but I have gone through a few . . . plastic just isn't as long lasting, so you end up paying about the same

 @LuvAZ what broke on the compounds? I have had mine for two years and they are still workin good, you can actually buy the rebuild kit for like 10 or 15 bucks. Unless you broke the actual platform of the pedal you can buy new pins and rebuild the spindles and such. I just bought new pins for the compounds and they are nice and fresh again.

 Rogue is a good choice if you like the Ruffian. If you get a chance, wrap your hands around a set of Ergon GA2s. I hate most of Ergon's stuff, but those grips fill my hand nicely, without sacrificing all the sensitivity you get with thin grips.

 Pretty much required for building wheels aswell. This one's a a lot cheaper then an absolute tension meter. Tools ain't cheap
  • 2 0
 I have it and against my expectations, it has turned out to be one of my most used and useful tools. The wheels I built by feel turned out to have wildly varying tensions, despite feeling even. They were always going out of true, and on my park bike I was always breaking spokes. Now my wheels are perfectly true and evenly tensioned, and they stay that way. Haven't broken a spoke yet, after 10 whistler days this season.
