Fyxation is better known for their colorful-but-tough nylon flat pedals adorning fixed gear bikes, but their new Mesa 61 takes the similar looking composite version and gives it a full 6061 alloy body.
Weight only goes up 29g (from 351g to 380g per pair), but we suspect the metal platform should be much stiffer and more durable. Platform is 106x100mm with a height of just 12.2mm at the front/rear edges (slightly thicker over the axle). It uses replaceable pins and is strap friendly. Spindle is chromoly with sealed bearing and DU bushing, and it can be installed with either an allen wrench or standard pedal wrench. Retail is $96.95.
Check the new combo kit for the Gates pedal after the break…
The Gates pedal is now available with black straps as a combo kit for $54.95. The kits will be offered in all of their pedal colors -white, black, red, green, pink, blue and orange- but all straps are black. The strap is 2″ wide and uses seatbelt material, and the pedals are impact grade nylon with a 26mm height and chromoly spindle rolling on loose ball bearings. The kit saves you $8 compared to buying them separately.
