    MTB cranks take pedal axles of 9/16", as do all three piece BMX cranks. Cheaper one-piece BMX cranks
    usually take1". So BMX style pedals usually come in two sizes, MTB pedals will come only in 9/16".

    D'oh what a bas*ard, I knew it would be dangerous answering this post, now I'll have to try and
    defend my answer in the face of the obvious facts...

    It's the new standard to go along with 1.5" steerers and oversized bottom brackets, innit?

    May I suggest something along the lines of "my / and 2 keys don't work too good" ;-)

    No no no, that sounds too much like I'm backing down, I said 1" and now I have to back it up.

    In fact I'm gonna have to set up my own company, "Behemoth pedals Co." and find someone who is an
    out of work engineer to knock me up a prototype pedal with 1" axle. Then I'll take my sample to
    korea and have them produce about 5000 pedals out of cast "alloy", set up a webpage announcing the
    arrival of the new pedal standard (sorry, I meant existing pedal standard that no-one but me had
    heard about before) "humungapedal" and flood the market. I've heard that I only need to put a small
    glossy ad in any MTB rag featuring someone jumping and pointing at his pedals with a caption like
    "Dude these pedals rock" and I'll make a small fortune.

    And If that fails I'll sell them all to Shaun aRe to go with his heeewage tyres............

    Oh and then when I've sold all the pedals, people will soon discover the need for my 'Cranktastical'
    crankarms as of course they won't fit anything else.

    Excellent idea. Prime candidate for the Cannondale 2004 line up.

    On second thoughts I'm sure I can sell all of them to JD - everyone knows he'll buy anything
    advertised in a magazine, heck I might even post a few reviews on MTBreview to totally convince him
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------
    Review: "yeah, I like, picked up these pedals in this shop and they were like, waaay rad, I mean
    come on maaan there made of, like, Alloy or summink. I'd definitely give them 5 chillis".

    similar products tried: "Last week I saw some gnarly looking ped's in raditude cycles, they were
    kinda grey lookin' but I liked 'em"

    Overall summary: "Dude you gotta be stoopid not to buy these".
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -----------------

    Note to JD - this post contains traces of sarcasm, please don't swear at me again or call
    me names...

    Note to JD - The above line contains traces of sarcasm, I couldn't give a f*ck you w*nker..
