Electra Custom Pedals

The problem – the original rat-trap pedals on my Peugeot UE-18 are too narrow, they dig in the outer sides of my shoes and don’t feel very good under my feet:

The solution – Electra Custom pedals:

As Goldilocks might have said, these pedals feel just right...

Do they spin like highly machined, über expensive bike pedals?

No, they don’t.  They’re larger than typical block pedals that are just shy of $20 and aren’t intended to be some high-end, end all pedals. They’re wider than the previous pair and far more comfortable.  With that in mind I’m delighted I bought these and I’d do it again.

And for the purists out there (Mr. Husman) I have carefully stored the original pedals so that if and when I ever part with the bike the original components will follow it.

That said, I sure like my Peugeot UE-18 mixte.  It’s primarily my parade bike these days.

Chris started riding a bike again when he noticed the Preston Ridge Trail being constructed across the street from his house. Since then he co-founded Biking in Dallas, has gone through countless Craigslist bike projects (some better than others) and can be found pedaling around town on a Electra Ticino with a camera in tow.
