All Mountain Bike Parts Descriptions
- The foots contact and power source of your bike.
Pedals have come full circle They started
out as a plain flat area for you feet to push the
crank. Soon straps came along to help get more power
by being able to push up and forward, as well as just
down. Then cleats, then multiple styles of what is
known as clipless pedals came along. Like a ski binding,
the cleat is specially bolted onto the shoe that snaps
into the pedal. With the more stunt orientated Jump
and Shore bikes, now so popular, the old flat pedal
has become standard again, affectionately known as
"Flats". They are just easier
to get un-attached to, if the jump you're about to
land wasn't going so well and you are about to bail.
