Demo Days Do i need to take Pedals?

Postby cpk1 » Sat Mar 20, 2010 17:49 pm

I have been told that on last years demo days you had to take your own pedals, do i have to take my own to this years? as i have not read anything which tells you one way or the other?

I think it means you can bring your own if you want. You would need to take your own clipless pedals though for obvious reasons

I take my own, just for familiarity.

I went to the one at Coed Y Brenin two years ago and didn't take my own pedals.

All the manufacturers had their own flat pedals but I could see they would have prefered it if we would have brought our own. Especially the guy on the Yeti stand, after he had changed the pedals on the only bike he had there for about the 10th time I heard him shout did they not ask you to bring your own pedals :lol:

I'm going to the on at CYB in April and although I use flat pedals I will be taking my own because I'm used to them.

Just been to the Demo Day at Cannock. I was chatting to the bloke from Hotlines as he put a pair of pedals (not mine) on the bike I was gonna demo... he said he wished the organisers would make more of a point of asking people to bring their own.

Have to say its probably best to bring your own if you ride clipless.

Each stand seemed to have a big box of flats to use, and a fair few sets of clipless pedals too.

If clipless then definitely bring your own, if you use flats, then it can't hurt, as most of the supplied ones were V8 style or like this so decent flats would be an improvement.

On Sunday at Cannock I had to borrow Crankbrothers pedals from the Lapierre crew because they were the only ones carrying them.
