    So i have a total of 8 - 10 miles on these pedals and they are already falling apart. The two screws holding the silver plate to the pedal went missing (I noticed one was gone and the second one fell out on todays ride). The entire silver piece slid out of its groove. Not happy. I e-mailed Price Point. I want to exchange them for something more durable. Any suggestions? Greg, which Welgos do you have? They appeared to have less moving parts then the 5050s.

    5-10 shoes... All you need... Super super super (did I say super?) super grippy. You literally have to lift your foot up to reposition it on the pedal.

    I got these:

    I haven't used them yet so I can't speak on the durability or performance. Plus I have nothing to compare them to, but they get good reviews on MTBR:

    I ski double black diamonds.

    For what I paid for the 5050s I can almost cover the shoe/pedal combo you bought. Hmmmm...

    I can keep the snake skin shoes for casual wear and rock the same shoes on trail as my idol.

    The Settes are great if you go clipless, but I think the snake skins will be better for the platforms.

    I can see your point. But I do have those clipless pedals I got off of Gremf last season. I would have both sets of pedals and shoes covered if I grab that combo.

    Got it. Remember, I have some extra SPD cleats if you need them.

    If I make the swap with Price Point I'd like to grab them. The clipless are going on the SS first. You know, for the Friendly's sessions....

    I removed the cassette and reinstalled the rear wheels with the spacers. I cut the chain and tried to install it but as expected I need a tensioner. The bike is looking lean and mean. Should be fun to ride a nice light bike on a smooth trail.
