Hi all,
I’m confused if my pedals are V8 or V12 and what year/vintage they are.
I got them in around 99/2000 and they were used already
They look old because they have the “hoops” on them and I think they are V8s because they have the big end cap, but it doesn’t stick out like some.

Hi,

They are V12 pedals. They have the Allen head cap and shinny axle and sport cartridge bearings. The V8 had a plastic end cap, loose ball bearings and a dull grey axle.
I'm pretty sure they were the first DMR pedals and were pretty special when released, I bought a set identical to the ones pictured here in 1999 and I currently have an orange pair on one of my old bikes.

Great thanks!
I can also see the original Wellgo casting info again showing they’re the early ones.
