Electra Custom Pedals On A Peugeot UE-18
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:
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.
