Hi could anyone please advise if this chainset limits my choice of pedals and how?

I am new to all this and amazed how much campagnolo pedals are selling for on eBay. Does anyone have any buying advice? Perhaps a bike jumble might be a better idea?

Many thanks

No limits really as long as it's not a french thread.........campag pedals can go for silly prices :) are you after vintage pedals for toe clips and straps?

For new buy MKS.......best bang per buck. :)

For used buy campag lookalikes, my favourite is Kyokuto Pro-Ace but there are a lot of cheaper lookalikes from Japland:D

Not very likely scenario but there are some pedals that measure 1/2 inch rather than 9/16th.

Look for a date code on the back of the crank, likely a number inside of a diamond or circle
