Back from a 3 day trip to Villingen and Winterberg, Germany. This particular photoshoot is from Villingen where we rode the freeride track. More particular we began to session the table-sections...And we had a blast doing it: ) Thomas_2 had a camera and began shooting.

Tables..who doesn't love tables?

Review: E13 LG1 pedal 2015 (generation2) (UPDATED)

E13 has put out a 2.generation of its LG1 pedal. And I have been testing it all summer. Lets take a look:

Huuge platform. Please land your aircraft here.. The inner body is alu, the outer is impact absorbing polycarbonate.

At 471grams these are definately not the lightest pedals. Nor the thinnest. There is a Ti-Axle version available, thats about a 100grams lighter.

Ahh the pins...Pins can make or break a pedal, and these pins are fahkin awesome! So one of the things E13 changed for the second generation of this pedal, is the size of the pins, they made them thinner to make them more grippy.

The spin control lets you control how much resisitance the spinning is giving, I like that, as I like my pedals to pretty much stay in place when I lift my foot. The axle sits on self lubricating IGUS bushings.

Besides 4mm pins, I bought these massive 7mm pins as well. However, the grip is so good with the 4mm pins, that I haven't had any incentive to try the longer pins...

And this is after a few days of bikepark use.

This is a really good pedal. These pedals stick like glue to five-ten shoes, They feel sturdy and have a high quality to them. They are big in both directions, and the pins are placed all the right places. They have taken the DH beatings without issues, and are going strong. The pin-system is great and easy to work with, the fact that you can switch between 3 sizes is neat, although expensive. The spin control gives the user control over just that; the spinning of the pedal, some like it tight, some loose, you decide.

These pedals are on the fat side, and are quite heavy, but even those factors doesn't take away the fact that these pedals are awesome, and highly recommended.

The pedals began to spin with a whole lot resistance after 6 months of use, to a point where they weren't usable. Even tho I adjusted the spin control. I'm currently warranting it and will see where it lands.
Because the pedals where unusable, I've given the pedals a final score of 0/6.

The Good
-Amazing grip! Even with the 4mm pins.
-Smart pin system
-Spin control

The Bad
-Extra pins a expensive and hard to get by
-The pedals stopped spinning after 6 months of use, and ultimately lost all function.

Score 0/6

Welcome to 2015, YouTube.

YouTube finally made embedded vids auto-choose the highest quality. Lets be fair, it only took them 11 years.

*slow clap*

So from now on, the vids on this site will play in HD, no more cryptic codes that doesn't work anyway *facepalm*

Oldie but goldie #7

"Oldie but Goldie" series will be my tribute to the "old days". When 640mm bars where considered wide, carbon was fragile, and adjustable seatposts didn't exist. And I'm doing it, for the fun of it.

Finally found this little old gem.

A small tribute to Morten, first man to hit this feature. 15 sec. No sound. 240 FPS.
