Mikashima issued the BM7 pedals years ago. This time, they refined some parts and sell as BM7 next.
These pedals are only sold throughout this year. Then I thought I should give it a try.
OG pedals are used for BMX bike in the 80s.
I rode my bike with them for a week or so. These pedals are really good. A bit heavier than my XT pedals but I don’t feel the difference at all. It feels even lighter because they spin so well. The big difference from the OG pedals is that they now have triple sealed bearings. Not cup and cone bearings. I haven’t tried on the dirt, but I think I could use them on single track or easy trails which I will try shortly.
Mikashima pedal has been in the business since 1949. They still manufacture their products in Tokorozawa city in Japan. This year is their 70th anniversary and these pedals are limited run for this year only.
if you have some chromoly bike, it is worth trying. Unfortunately, 1/2 shaft are not offered. 9/16 shaft only.
