Pedal upgrades for your Stanforth
If you'd like to upgrade the pedals there are a number of options here, both SPD and platform.
All of our bikes are supplied with basic pedals as customers have different pedal preferences so we prefer not to increase the price of the bike with a component which may not be used. Here are some higher quality touring options

Here are some higher quality touring options including platform and clipless (i.e. cleats/SPD).
Shimano Deore XT PD-T8000 XT MTB SPD Trekking pedals, single-sided mechanism - Black
This XT trekking pedal combines SPD mechanism on one side and a stable platform pedal body and pins on the other, you can ride with cleats or normal shoes
The SPD has a low profile platform height with a large platform contact area for excellent support and stability. It's lightweight and uses a forged alloy body and cromoly axle. It has a 8 mm hex wrench mounting system.
Other highlights: A sealed cartridge axle system for reliability and simplified low maintenance. An easy entry system with tension adjustment provides plenty of support and holds the cleat firmly in place. Built in reflector. Weight: 392 grams per pair
Shimano PD-M324 SPD Pedals - Silver PD-M324 SPD MTB pedals - one-sided mechanism
Like the XT PD-T780 this pedal combines SPD mechanism on one side and flat pedal body on the other, so you can ride with cleats or normal shoes. The serviceable cup and cone bearings add to the long life of the pedals. Adjustable cleat tension means you can start off with loose tension for extra easy engagement and release, and turn up the tension as you progress. Weight: 533 grams per pair
MKS Sylvan touring pedals
These are very similar looking to the VP 365 touring pedals that the Kibo’s are supplied with, but the MKS Sylvan touring pedal is higher quality. Toe clips can be added to this pedal. One advantage of this pedal over the VP 365 touring pedal is the allen key fitting on the inside of the spindle for quick removal and attachment without a pedal tool. Alloy body with Cro Mo axle. Weight: 390g pair
MKS Sylvan Stream Pedal
The Stream is lighter and narrower than the popular Sylvan Tour. It's toe-clip compatible and the double sided Stream is finished in anodised black and has the usual high quality MKS bearings. Weight: 343g pair
MKS Prime Sylvan Touring Pedals
With polished body, end cap and axle the Prime Sylvan Touring pedal is smoother and more sophisticated than the standard Sylvan. For those that appreciate performance and great looks. With allen key axle tightening and Ti colour cage. Weight: 352g pair
MKS Sylvan Touring Next Pedal
A new version of MKS’s best selling Sylvan model. Triple sealed bearings produce super smooth rotation and maintenance free pedalling. Light weight, mirror finished, high end pedals made in Japan. Weight: 338g pair
MKS Lambda Wide Platform Pedals
An unusual looking pedal but I’m a fan of this design for touring. The ultra wide, long profile pedal features a tough alloy body with a wide grippy platform and unique figure-of-eight design. It also has integrated reflectors. Weight: 427g pair
N.B. all these pedals are only available to purchase as an upgrade when buying a Kibo bike and not available for general purchase
