Tapebubba’s Grip King pedal mod

My RBW list (and etsy) friend TapeBubba modified his Rivendell/MKS Grip King pedals to have more lateral support. Watch the video and see how he does it.

I think it’s a great hack. I’ve had that ‘roll off the side of the pedal’ feeling myself, and my feet are fairly narrow.

He removes the cage pieces from the pedal, makes a U out of aluminum strap to go around the body of the pedal. The bottom of the U makes an outside edge for the pedal, and the cage pieces are screwed back on, sandwiching the strap in place.

  1. Very nice. I’m tempted to give my MKS “Lambda” pedals, which by most accounts are non-Rivendell branded equal, the same treatment. My only advice would be to leave the bar stock full-length until it’s bent for better leverage, but that’s trivial. For all I know, he scratched his head and did the second one that way anyway. Thanks for the great blog.
