SimWorks Taco Pedals


SimWorks Taco Pedals

Sometimes you only have one bike.  It has to be able to haul your butt to work on the daily, and also haul ass on the weekends.  Most pedals are either good for commuting (nice to shoes, not gunna tear your pants up) or good for shredding, but not both.  I think the newish Taco pedal from Simworks does a fine job of toeing the line.  I also like the idea of using your toes to manipulate some abstract line.  I digress… 

The traction pins are bigger and less sharp than your average ultra grippy platform, but they still bite enough that you are not gunna be sliding around on these pedals like you do on some other MKS pedals, like the Grip Kings.  The platform is big, 110mm x 105mm.  We reckon 100mm x 100mm is the smallest a pedal can be, but these Taco pedals are worth looking at if you have big feet.  Think size 10 or larger.  Or if you like to ride in soft shoes like the OG Tevas.  

MKS makes the Taco pedal in Japan.  That means it’s nicely made and serviceable.  Cup and cone bearings, which last forever with a modicum of care.  Cup and cone bearings are amazing, in their way.  I’ve ridden bikes with C+C bearings from 100 years ago that feel smooth.  Just gotta pull ‘em apart and maintain them every 5 years or so.  

If all you do is shred off road, get the Spank Oozy pedal, or the Deity Black Kat.  But if you mix it up in town and in the woods, this is a fine and good pedal.
