Some pedals are a pain to rebuild. Race Face‘s new Aeffect Pedals are decidedly not. They are so easy in fact that I thought I would teach the flat pedal loving goats on our property how to do it. The same instructions also happen to work great for humans.
Regardless of how easy the Race Face Aeffect Pedals are to rebuild, they are killer pedals. At 358 grams and a max thickness of 17.4 millimeters with a double concave design, there is some serious performance to be had for under $120. Add the fact that you can choose between black, blue, or red shot peened and anodized finishes and you get a pedal that looks as good as it works.
