$28 and totally worth it. best bang for your buck pedal out there IMO.

I've been using some Wellgo MG-1s on my AM bike. Solid pedal. Even better price. Love it.

That bike looks like it was barely ridden! Great catch. Now just get out there and ride.

The only thing that I can't quite tell re: the bike is what kinda pedals it has. If those are the plastic pedals that came with it then I'd consider changing them out to something with more grip or you'll soon be slapping your in-between-naughty place with metal tubing. I've used these which aren't too expensive...

Not sure if they'll ship to Canada though.

You'll need some sort of flat-soled shoe to take advantage of them - running shoes won't work. Five-Ten, Teva, and Vans all make cycling-specific shoes, but you can use any skate-style shoes in a pinch.

You mentioned that your tubes have given out on you. Since they are cheap, replace these first. When replacing the tubes, run your finger along the inside side walls of the wheel. Do you feel any burrs or anything sticking out? If so, sand it down and get some rim tape. Bikes like these usually come with cheaper tires varying in quality. When the tire is off, check a couple things;

  • The tire will be wire bead (you can easily google what this means). Check to see that the wire bead doesn't have any abnormalities (straight, nothing sticking out of the bead).
  • Check for holes or sign of ware
  • Check if anything somehow made it inside of the tire.

    Remember, if you replace the tire don't go crazy and buy tires that are 80$ each. Go with something like this;

    After this, if you're going to be doing any agressive mountain biking, I would highly recommend replacing the pedals with something that has metal pins. Once again, no need to go crazy! Something like this:

    The two best upgrades in my opinion are:

  • A pair of well fitting baggy cycling shorts. I highly recommend the company endura.
  • A decent hydration pack that has room for a spare tube, a tire lever, and a general folding bike tool

    Do not patch these tubes. The tubes this bike came with are not great. Tubes are so cheap they aren't worth patching unless you're out and run out of tubes. Don't buy a tube from target or walmart, make sure you buy a tube from an actual bike shop as they are a much higher quality.

Do you like magnesium?

u/metalate · 1 pointr/bikecommuting

That's what I do as well. Then I'd suggest either the Bommixc or Wellgo Mg 1:

Bonmixc are cheaper, and they're really well made. My only criticism of Bonmixc is that if you wear really thin, flexible soled shoes, then you can feel the metal bar a bit on the ball of your foot. But if you have stiffer soles, or something like a normal athletic/running shoe, it's no issue. Wellgo is also great.

Been rocking mine for a year now, you'll love yours!

Do yourself a favor and grab a pair of Wellgo MG-1 Pedals, they're infinitely more durable and grippy than the plastic ones the bike comes with.

We used to recommend Wellgo MG1s around here. I have a set and I love them. Fairly cheap too.
