I have now been riding on these pedals for around a year and a half, mostly on technical, rocky trails. I wrote the original review after tackling a 48 mile ride on such a trail. I was attempting the ride again a year later when at mile 18, I realized that my right pedal (not the strap or attachment components) had broken. The warranty for the pedals are good for one year. I contacted the company, just in case, and they offered to sell me replacement pedals at 20% off. While this is was a kind good-faith effort on their part, it simply won't be enough to keep me in Power Grips while mountain biking. If the company has no more faith in their pedal than to sell me another one at a modest discount, this must mean their pedals are not built to last much longer than a year. This simply isn't a good investment for me, even if it means not purchasing a unitasker shoe.
I went ahead and purchased a pair of clipless pedals and shoes and can confirm all my suspicions in the original post. There is more clearance underneath your foot with clipless pedals making technical or rocky trails easier to navigate, and it is easier to get clipped back in on rough trail. Additionally, clipless pedals do not require you to keep your foot more or less horizontal with the ground in order to pull up on the pedals as Power Grips do. This was an unexpected but exciting advantage of clipless pedals.
That having been said, if I were to purchase a second bike for commuting, I would use the Power Grips. I have removed two stars from my review, however, because I no longer believe they are a suitable choice for serious mountain bikers like myself.Read more ›
I ride a recumbent now and after my clips wore out again, I decided to try these extra large sized powergrips. These are large. I have them on the smallest/shortest setting and they are still slightly too big for my running shoes. I tried the regular ones and they are still too short. I would have thought that they would have more overlap in sizes between the two kinds of straps.
Other than that, they've worked great on my recumbent. My legs and feet were a little sore after my first long ride, so I know I'm using my muscles a little differently. I am keeping these and would recommend them to others.
Oh yeah, the pedals seem to work great too. I was worried that they were too narrow (tried some previous pedal strap combos from powergrip and my feet were too wide), but these are okay for me.
I found that the pedals on my Schwinn recumbent bike work just fine, so I transferred them. They use an adjustable heavy rubber strap which is much softer.
i took off a star because the bolt that tightens the strap is very easy to strip out the hole it inserts into.
IMHO this is quite a flaw.
Will definitely use these on any bike I own now.
