depends on wether you ride with spd's or flats? Any metal cage ones should do- I'm not to anal about pedals or indeed tyres, put a wanted ad up.

really love this bike, what size is it?

Think I will get some metal cage ones, I dont think I am skilled or confident enough for clips yet.

But boy , what a ride this afternoon, didnt want to come home!!!!!

Gazz, the bike apparently is the smallest frame size they did???according to the lad I got it off. I havent measured it, but guessing 20 inch... :?:

he was talking rot, I have a 15 inch clockwork (see miniclockwork in my sig below) but could be 19 inch.

measure from the centre of the bottom bracket to centre of the top tube and that should give you the size.
