Great pedals for my big feet?

most of my riding is commuting 100+ miles a week and I really did not want to go back to cleats I hate the hassle of the shoes and walking. with a e bike you don't really need them for power. so now my size 13.5 feet don't bend and I can use any shoe I want.

I liked them too but my big feet like these better. Wish they did not cost s much as they do I don't need fancy pedals.

If the PIs still aren't enough pedal for you, try to get your hands on a pair from a Elliptigo SUB

Wow.

I thought my 105mm W x 108mm L pedals were decently oversize. But yours are 105mm W x 160mm L. That'll do it.

For me, it's the width that's most useful. Don't have size-13 dogs, myself, but I can't abide narrow pedals. Never have.

Thanks for the reference. I've got a buddy with big shoes who prefers platform type pedals, so he'll probably appreciate these.

Crank bros has a size large for their pedals which is more of a width thing though it makes the pedal bigger around in general. Supposed to be good for big feet, I'll be ordering some soon since they came recommended for sz13 feet, I need wide as I wear a 4e on top of being a 13.

I compared them to the race face awhile ago and they were only a small amount larger. these guys cost about the same but are a fair size lager.

I wear size 13 US or 47 EU and both my bikes have the cheaper plastic version of the Odyssey Grandstand pedal. Itís big, double concave and not super sharp and scratchy. Iíve used them exclusively for several years and they seem big enough and comfy. I wonít say that the spindle and bushing style is my favorite but itís ok and doesnít require relube or adjustments very often once theyíre broken in a bit.

Size 13 wide (sometimes 14) here. That Ergon looks interesting for supination support. Set screws have eaten through soles of shoes too and that anti slip surface might be a worthwhile change.

The Kona "Wah Wah 2" pedals are quite large composite platforms as well for $59.99.

Pedal Extenders

Another thing that can help folks with big feet is to install pedal extenders. They thread into your cranks and you thread your pedals into them. Harris Cyclery in Newton, MA used to carry them in three sizes, to extend your pedals 1/2", 3/4" or 1" outboard. I couldn't find them in their catalogue just now, but maybe if you call them (617-244-1040), they could help you out. Although I am only a size 10, I am very duck footed and they keep me from hitting my heels on the chain stays.

It's pretty easy to find 20mm extenders for regular 9/16" pedals on ebay. That's basically 3/4".

DMR Vaults have been the most comfortable pedal I used for my size 12 feet:

Also use Five Ten Freeriders...between the 2 my feet are more comfortable on the bike, than they are when I'm walking, it's great.
