Spank Spike Pedals
True Flat Platform • Concave Pin Pattern • Ultimate Grip and Adjustability!
What Are They Saying?
"The Spike Flat Pedal achieves an ultra-thin 12mm thickness without compromising a closed axle design or ultimate strength, by utilizing a cold forged pedal body and special scandium enriched, hollow taper steel axle, paired with a thin walled IGUS outboard bushing. The results are improved pedaling and cornering clearance, lowered center of gravity, reduced "pedal flip" effect, and improved pedaling efficiency as the riders foot is brought closer to the center axis of the pedal. Chamfered leading and side edges also improve the pedals ability to glance over obstacles and reduce impact forces. Oversized, full compliment, industrial sealed inboard bearings slam flush with crankarms to reduce leverage on the bearing unit while at the same time reducing Q-factor, which further improves pedaling efficiency and rider positioning. Finally the extra long 90+cm2 platform improves grip and support, while further reducing the "pedal flip" effect during climbing or aggressive pedaling. The Spike Flat is truly a revolution in pedal design!"

If you lose studs you'll have a difficult time finding something from the hardware store. I did some scouting around and found the most suitable replacement to be 8 or 10mm set screws (M4x0.7). I chose not to go this route because I'd rather have original hardware.
Even with 5 missing studs (on one pedal) I still have great grip and feel confident using them.
Lastly, these pedals come with washers. While I'm happy I didn't have to purchase washers, I'd prefer that the pedals fit without washers since I remove my pedals regularly to fit my bike into my car. I'm just waiting to lose one.

Great cupping, large platform, plenty of 'spike'.
You will wear out shoes before you wear these pedals out. For sure!
I have 3,000 miles on one pair of pedals (with a recent bearing change and rebuild kit) and two pair of shoes during the same time frame.
But they will cut you. Like that vengeful girlfriend when you left her Don't leave these pedals prematurely either. You will pay.
