Description V8s use exactly the same body design as the V12, but they run on precision ground (1/8 balls),adjustable bearings (and a tough Cro. mo axle. A grease port and V-Lube syringe mean easy servicing.
Cons: Cheap paint, the pins will bend and break off. Do not hold up to heavy use.
Recommendation: I rode on a set of these for about a year. After a few months the permanent mounted pins began to bend. After a year, they were all bent or sheared off. The adjustable pins were still intact but it wasn't enough to provide good traction. Buy some 50/50s and don't look back.
Pros: Cheaper, light, resilient, easy to maintain.
Cons: non-sealed bearings and the paint chips off easily.
Recommendation: These are some of the best bang for your buck pedals out there. They've been around for a while now and are still a damn good choice considering cost, durability, and ease of maintenance.
