Hello I managed to find the specs for these EliptiGO pedals on T'internet. As I am having no luck finding Catalysts Evo 2's over here in the UK. I brought what I could find of the reliably biggest working platform pedals, (that were decent). And hoped it would support the expanse of the arch of my foot during the motion of pedaling. I have started to get that tell, tell planta faciitis twinge. I stumbled across this post while trying to find my forever pedals that aren't going to blow the budget on import duty and taxes.
This pedals are 29cms long and the pivot point of these pedals is pretty much in the middle. I too was as scepticle about its viability until I did some measuring this morning post ride. My shoe soles are 29-30cms long and how I ride my Halfbike, (pedals pretty much slap bang in the middle of my foots arch). Which means I am right in that window to rub or bang on things if these pedals are going to course issues. Granted when I was learning to carve corners I scrubbed my heals on the wheels a bit, but that was all. Not really done it since.
I think they could work. They just need to have good enough spindle distance from the crank to the edge of the pedal and be 9/16" thread and it looks possible.
