TIME TRIAL, PERFORMANCE & AERO ROAD BIKE SERVICE

Soumya Chatterjee Mechanics

This #techtuesday @storm_to_glory__s.c will be sharing his thoughts on pedals inspired by his work a really nice pair recently - the Crankbrothers Stamp 11. The CB Stamp11 are forged 6061-T6 aluminum pedals with a titanium spindle for further weight reduction.

Every heard anyone go gaga over pedals? Most of us buy a bike and want to ride it as soon as possible. Even if it means riding a high-end full-suspension downhill monster thru city traffic! This is why most bicycling companies give a free set of pedals with every bike. But remember, these could be pedals that require to be replaced with something sturdier and safer if you intend to ride a bit. Pedals are the first set of bearings where the rider applies power which translates into the bike moving forward. A lot of riders also end up putting a lot of weight on the pedal - performing tricks/jumps on mountain bikes, accelerating on city roads or sprinting on a climb on a road bike. The pedal is also a very important contact & grip point (the other two contact points being your hands/handlebar and your bum/saddle). A good set of pedals can actually transform your ride by squeezing more juice from your legs and making the ride safer by ensuring your foot does not slip.
