Customer Reviews

Seem surprisingly light, and very well made with excellent quality.
Amazon Customer
Normally I ride clipless pedals, but switched to these for ease of riding with my Minimus running shoes which are soft soles.
Jimmie K.
Having more contact with the pedals, I am able to power up hills much better and no more pain!

These pedals were apparently made by MKS with design input from Rivendell Bicycle Works, the traditional/retro-grouch bicycle shop and boutique bike maker run by Grant Petersen. Rivendell calls these the Grip King Pedals, and as near as I can tell these are the same product.

Go to rivbike.com to read Grant's rant about clipless pedals, which he calls the "great shoe ruse," and his impassioned argument about why it's silly to use clipless pedals/cleats on bicycles (unless you're racing).

I'm not ready to drink the Rivendell Kool-Aid and give up my clipless pedals, but these MKS Lambda pedals are really a nice change of pace. They allow you to ride a bike with "normal" shoes, but they still give you enough grip that your feed won't slide around. Because of the wide platform surfaces, they also avoid pressure on your feet and help you avoid foot pain or "hot spots" which sometimes can occur when riding bikes w/cleats.

They appear to be well made, and are not as heavy as you might think from looking at the photo (though certainly not as light as good clipless pedals).

I commute 15 miles round trip to work three days a week. I'm still not brave enough to go clipless but wanted better pedals than the stock pedals on my Specialized Dolce road bike. I hated taking off from red lights and the flip side of the stock pedal had a slight 'bump' in the middle after a mile or two would hurt the arch of my foot. I got tired of looking down to flip it over, missing the pedal entirely trying to keep the 'right' side up, etc. I started to research on the best platform pedals for road bikes that were out there and found these. From the looks on various websites they looked heavy and wide but I loved the length. There was no way my foot could miss those on a jump start.

I purchased on amazon (they had the best price!). Recieved in a week or so and they were surprisingly a lot lighter than they look. Love the double reflectors so no matter how it flips it'll always be there. I like how it covers a large portion of my feet so that I'm not just using my toes or the middle section, it allows me to "float" to find the most comfortable pedaling position for me.

I'm very happy with my purchase and don't regret buying them at all. Happy that I found them through various bike forums and aren't heavy at all. Great pedals

If there's one thing I have always struggled with, it's riding a bike with clips on the pedals. Of course, I am the kind of person who also hates the feel of sheets that are tightly tucked under the mattress, so I'm going to favor platform pedals in general - I hate having any part of my body bound. There are two schools: you either like platforms or you don't, and I respect both views - whatever suits you. That said, I find these pedals quite attractive: made of shinny, textured metal, to prevent slipping, and they feature yellow reflectors on both the front and rear. To my surprise, they really are quite light - the pictures, somehow, make them look heavier than they actually are. Finally, I love the generous surface of the pedals, which makes me feel comfortable when pedaling with any type of sandal, shoe or boot that I own. Those nice folks at Rivendell sell something very similar, if not identical, called the King Pedal, for lots more $$$. I bought mine at Amazon, however, and I'm totally satisfied with them - and I saved some money, to boot. Consider them.

I went from toe clips to clipless pedals to powergrips to free pedaling. I consider it an evolution although some may consider otherwise ;). More surface area for my foot keeps it supported and reduced my arch fatigue and knee pain. I wanted to buy these from Rivendell but it is hard to justify almost double the price. The only down side of this purchase was the wait. For some reason it takes Niagra cycles about 1 week to process and ship the order. If you order expect about 2 weeks from order to receipt. I'm not sure if this is a problem with the amazon order system or with the dealer. Rivendell would have had this product in my mailbox at most 3 days after online ordering for the same shipping cost. At least the cost savings made it worth the wait.

Cheers,
Logan.

Wide platform provides plenty of support for your feet. I tried them on with sneakers and their were very comfortable and felt well supported. The pedals are light and spin very freely. They look great also. The mounting is the standard 9/16 by 20 so it should fit on any bike crank. I like them a lot. Also the price I got them for on Amazon was very decent. I would have given them 5 stars instead of 4, if instructions were included on how to service the bearings. These pedals are supposed to be serviceable by removing the plastic cap, but no instructions were provided.

I installed these pedals on my 2001 Trek Fuel 98. With these pedals your entire foot will feel connected to the pedal and not just a little patch. This is nice especially when pedaling up the extreme hills in my neighborhood. I weighed the 2 pedals minus the package on a kitchen scale and they weighed about 420 grams. Pedals spin freely and bearings appear to be serviceable. They are made in Japan. Whoever made these pedals should be very proud as they exhibit a high degree of craftsmanship.
