Best Flat Pedals?

I’ve been riding clipless pedals pretty much exclusively since the mid-80s when I got my first pair of Looks, just a year after they first hit the market. I’ve owned all sorts of road and mtb clipless pedals since then–Look, Time, Shimano, Ritchey, Wellgo, Onza, Speedplay, etc. But when I moved to Bellingham last year I decided it was time to give flat pedals a try for mountain biking. I don’t think I’d ridden flat pedals since my BMX days.

After consulting the LBS I went with the alloy OneUp pedals, which I have loved (though I have had some issues with the bearings, which OneUp covered under warranty). Since then I have also gotten a few sets of the OneUp composite pedals for my vintage mtbs, and at $40, I don’t see how they can be beat.

PinkBike just did a huge roundup of flat pedals, and called the OneUp composites the "Best Value" out there. They awarded the Crankbrothers Stamp Large the “Best Overall Feel” and I plan to try those next.

What are your favorite flat pedals?
