Shimano T8000 XT MTB SPD Trekking Pedals

These are hybrid pedals: Bear Claw on one side, clip-on the other side. I wore-out the stock pedals that shipped with my Penny-Farthing and wanted to replace them with ones that had excellent bearings and were easy to maintain. This model has sealed cup and cone bearings and most importantly, yellow reflectors which is a legal requirement for pedals when road cycling here in the UK. Although there are lots of great pedals, there were few decent ones I found that also had the required reflectors, so this featured big in my selection. At £90 they weren’t cheap, but should then again, tossing a £40-£50 set every year isn’t either. My only one small niggle is that sometimes you have to flick the pedals with your toes to get the flat-side facing up. On a positive note though, if you race your Penny-Farthing, you can clip-in to these pedals on the track (I don’t advise road cycling clipped-in to pedals as you may have to make a quick dismount; you’ve been warned…). Happy with them so far. Will report back on the experience of their maintenance after I beat them up a bit.

The Specs can be found HERE and you can buy a set of these from Wiggle as I did HERE
