- Bike Checks
UPDATE: it was a close race this week, but in the end, there can be only one. Or two, since we also have a prize for a lucky voter! M Kuczynski's shot took the voting, and Vital member Elek_Norbert is our lucky voter - both winners will each receive a pair of Spike flat pedals from Spank!
The Spike Flat Pedal achieves an ultra-thin 12mm thickness without compromising a closed axle design or ultimate strength, by utilizing a cold forged pedal body and special scandium enriched, hollow taper steel axle, paired with a thin walled IGUS outboard bushing. The results are improved pedaling and cornering clearance, lowered center of gravity, reduced "pedal flip" effect, and improved pedalling efficiency as the rider's foot is brought closer to the center axis of the pedal. Chamfered leading and side edges also improve the pedals ability to glance over obstacles and reduce impact forces, and the oversized platform will make sure your feet stay on during the wildest of maneuvers.
The Vital Photo Comp is a weekly photo competition, with prizes awarded to the picture that receives the most votes, as well as a randomly selected member who voted for the winning shot. If you'd like your photos to be eligible, create an account and upload your shots. To be eligible for the voter prize drawing, just make sure you are logged in to your Vital account when you vote - it's that simple!
