Else, anyone done anything to double cage the Brompton folding pedal?
That would be a fit once and forget solution.
Hi,
I live in an area where the winter season is short and 9 months are completly dry.
If so, the MSK 7?

Yesterday I took the F284 (just 20.50$). They better than the factory ones but still not so grippy as I want to.
I wonder if the MSK 7 are more "grippy".

Wonder if it possible to put in tiny setscrews into the plastic F284...(?)

What about the Brompton folding pedal?
Is it grippy more than others?

Best option is definitely something as Wellgo R146R as it compact enough folding them but not sure how is possible completly fold the bicycle with them.

What is the right sulotion for a pedal that will hold my shoes/sandals on it but able to fold or at least compact so it would not stick out more than few cm from the frame?
For your convenience I added a photos of all the options.

Thank you VERY much!

You need a drill *, a threading tap, and a bag of setscrews to do the job to answer the question,
where you ask:
Wonder if it possible to put in tiny setscrews into the plastic
* A drill press helps you get the holes in straight , and a drill press vice holds your pedal solidly in place
to get the holes where you intend them to be..

Well, A drill press is over my abilities to do this as I just do have it.
Only if I will use carpenter, mechanic...Guess I can find one.
I dont know which exactly to buy for that purpose.
Or I actualy need to buy it? Or any carpenter/mechanic supposed to have this threading tap?

The welgo 287 is the beat folding pedal for grip, imo , out of the ones here.
Its a smallish platform pedals with studs so no issues for grip.
Brompton is the only durable pedal there.
Its small and platform area far away from the crank due to its design.
The brompton pedal is brought in singles depending on what side you want to fold. Then run a standard pedal on the other.
I only take my pedals off for car use, when the bike is layed on its side

Actually, the Wellgo F265 is a steal for the quality you get. Wellgo F265

@bhkyte
The 287 isnt folding. It is an MTB/DH etc pedals and they're too big.
In case I'll go for UNfolding ones it would be the Wellgo R146R.

@tds101
I tried the F284 and it gues it do grab the shoes I guss there are better.
Is there A reasson buying the F265 if I have already the F284?

======

Any say about the MSK 7?
If it really cach the shoes on it?

Thank you!

It is, but the huge leverage exerted by the body on the tiny bushing bearing doesn't inspire confidence. I would also be worried pedaling out of the saddle that the plastic might simply snap off.

The build quality is much more solid on the F265. It's aluminum, and the F284 is plastic. For $15 the F265 is a great pedal. It's more like a BMX pedal, which I prefer.

That being said, the MKS FD-7 is also an excellent pedal, and look more like a traditional folding bike pedal. More money, but it will probably last 2 to 3 times as long. MKS FD-7

Think I go with the MKS FD-7.
Traditional pedal is very good for me...I dont like the big MTB flat ones on 20" bicycle...
Lots of good reviews - also provide good traction.

Will buy also these just for a try...what do you think?


Thanks a lot!!!!!

Allready have it.
Altough only since 3 days ago...but I dont feel it really grippy.
Acording to MKS FD-7 reviews (and replays here) they supposed to be very good by all espects.
Thanks

I read what @bhkyte said ... forgot the other(your's) opinion...

That being said, the MKS FD-7 is also an excellent pedal, and look more like a traditional folding bike pedal. More money, but it will probably last 2 to 3 times as long. MKS FD-7
Any other friends that have/had it can share their opinions?

I could not find in that thread anyone that say that the model that he using met my needs (folding & grippy).

Maybe I will take the "risk" and order the MKS FD-7.

Unless anyone here can really recommand on any model that the compromise isnt big on the grip issu and folding.

Thanks!

The Wellgo F265 looks to be more "grippy" than the mks pedals. Personally, I'm going to get a set of the Wellgo F265's myself. For $15 they're hard to beat! And if they break I can get 2 more as a backup.

Maybe you need different shoes to have them contribute some better grip?

I know my self.
Just for information, there are holders for quick release pedals:
노브 디자인 : 네이버 카페
https://dinokiddo.me/shop/tibolts/br...or-mks-pedals/
*New Ultralight titanium axles quick release CNC pedals + pedal holder brompton | eBay

Or you can maybe build them yourself by just buying the quick release red thingie and bend + pierce a piece of aluminum.

I dont see it reasonable spending so much for pedals.

Right now I using the Wellgo F284 wich are nice. I cant say they are too grippy.
A week a go I got the MKS FD-7 that looking really nice, well build!

I will put them after I will complete the upgrade of Crankset&Chainring (the Chainring yet to arrive **from China)
