Been a minute since I’ve had a fresh review on here so luckily the dudes at Fyxation came through with something to beat up a few months back. I’ve had the Mesa 61s on my bike for about three months now and have been nothing but impressed with how they’ve held up. They’ve performed well on every level despite looking like they’ve been in a bar fight. Nothing short of a solid pedal. Click through for the whole bittt.

 

Pedal Body:

 

Being that I ran thee with no straps left the whole pedal open to impacts. These plenty of scratches and dents in the bodies from throwing my bike, bailing and obviously grinding all kinds of shit with and without pegs. That being said they still feel and work well with most of the damage being merely cosmetic. The only thing that might be a problem (and I haven’t tried yet) is breaking down the pedal to replace parts as the allen holes on the end caps are pretty worked…though I expected this as well considering how hard I am on my bike every day.

Spindle/Bearings:

 

Both the chromoly spindle and the bearing are both still running smoothly. No bending in either spindle and no problems with blown out bearings or anything of the sort. Both are still smooth as butterrr.

Overall:

 

All in all I dig these pedals a lot. The pins have plenty of grip which is crucial when not running foot retention. I did notice that the strap slots are a bit too narrow for some straps like the Zontracs I want try out. Being that these held up so well Ill simply be replacing these with something else from Fyxation while I see what’s good with some straps…but these won’t be going far.

Thanks again to the Fyxation dudes for coming through on these!
