I was so impressed with these pedals that I ordered more sets so now I got 4 in total.
I run these with all pins, and the grip can’t even compare to normal cheap pedals they are on a whole new level.
I have jumped and landed with the pedal on a end of a stair end and no damage not bend no play . but they are now on my fuel ex and the left crank arm failed and the left pedal fell off, the threads for the pin failed few days later, which is probably caused by loosened pin, and damage to threads was probably done wheel the pedal fell off,I have Used Loctite 243 all of my pedals,the thread locker on the pins are will no do the job properly, So you have to apply some more.
No I did not overnightened them,it as a bike mechanic in the store that switched the pedals from my trek 6300 to the fuel ex.,good they had a spare crank.I have used the pedal with the xt crank arm I got and the pedal did not fall of, so i assume it was just a faulty crank arm that caused this.
After about 2 season of use the metal rings and the locking clips will show sings of wear,and there will be noticeable play and knocking sound.
But straight line provides spare parts,which can be bought directly from their site,or from online shops.
Only one size,for sizes above 44 these pedals will be too narrow,my size is 43-44,and my shoes go over the platform by about 05cm.
Very durable,can take some abuse.
easy to replace pins
easy to service,one of the easiest on the market right now
many colour choices, will match most bikes
Excellent pedals, I absolutely recommend these.
If you want the best gripping concave platform pedals on the market but not spend much cash on light weight pedals go for the defacto pedals!
but they not the lightest pedals with good grip on the market, but if you want to save weight go for the Syntace nine nine titan instead,but the Straightline de facto are much cheaper.
If you already got this phone and can’t buy a new one but stil lwant to use the camera on it GET A CAMERA APP FROM THE GOOGLE PLAY
Read more about that on the bottom of the article.
the reasons i got this phone is that i need one fast and it need to be robust because i do mountain biking and it need to waterproof, my Nokia phone had many bugs in OS, so i got the cat s50, but i knew the camera was not so good,so not much research has been done.
better sound quality than a cheap old school phone,
wet-finger tracking wet works pretty well
I have to charge the phone very often, I have to charge it 2 up to 4 times in a day if I take alto of pictures.
the monitor/screen does not get bright enough on max brightness, for a sunny day, it’s impossible to see anything unless you cover it with something, so shooting trails in sunny days is tricky, I just have to guess what I am shooting, and shoot many picture.
Very flexy design. It looks like its made out of metal but it’s not its plastic.
Power on button is constantly getting stuck, the frame is made of flexy plastic.
The flimsiest Micro USB port I have ever seen, if you touch your phone or small vibration i n the desk when connected it will disconnect and connect, because of the movement.
there is no camera app installed, besides Google camera app which is not good at all, lacks all controls,like manual ISO and flash settings and focus settings,
Body/chassis: flex and play in the phone chassis the fake aluminium plastic sides can loosen a bit,if you are strong enough you could probably bend the phone.
there is flex in the chassis, which results in the On/OFF button getting stuck.
I have dropped the phone few times,and the left upper side-wall is looser/got play.
I dropped my phone accidentally one time and the on/off button got dislocated and did slide to the side, but i managed to push it back in place.
sim card and SD card cover can very easily open when the cover kits something and it his right where the fingernail gap is.
the phone did not come with pre-installed screen protection sticker, the sticker on the screen had writing and-and sticker on it so you could not use the screen, so I put the protector sticker that came with it but as you probably already know h they can be a hell to put on
front camera/selfie camera is useless
the black backplate do not give you extra grip as they say
useless for video recording in the woods & pictures
unless at night-time very much blur and noise in the dark shots, and sunshine is and for a photo shoot too, it will make light and reflective objects white.
video example 1:
video example 2:
This is how bad the picture can look like if i use blitz,and its dark,and I wear blue shorts,there is no blue spot on this bike frame, and as you can see green becomes lime color. this is one of the reasons you should not use the default Google camera app.
Norwegian winter time evening test:
Extreme light test: here is a test i did by taking some shots at a Gemini Xera light with max light mode on
To take a decent shot with this phone you need to have a pretty even environment, not like in the woods with dark and very bright sun at the same time, the camera just cant handle it.
camera lens sticks out i should be protected more
Examples of decent shots: as long as you select the best ISO and Exposure settings, you can get ok pictures
here is a frame from a video i just cropped it.
The left is original and right is edited in DxO Optics Pro 8 just to show about how it actually looks like in real life that the s50 phone camera struggles with, as you can see the video quality is very bad, and every thing is blurred.editing helps a lot,but cant fix the blurriness of the shots or videos.
with the app called Open camera with the flash light mode on ,frame by frame while moving the camera/phone: this is a ok frame but 15 frames later you can see that its’s very blurred
side walk evening test autumn (with way too high iso)
its possible to take pictures without noise like this but, you need a camera app with manual ISO.
manual control of all settings will improve the pictures a lot.
ISO Examples of the S50 with Open Camera app:
this phone is more durable than cheap phones and more robust than some older expensive phones, but i am disappointed with the phone,if you have this phone you have to download a camera app, to sue the full capabilities of this camera I recommend Open camera(its open course and of course its free) the open camera app will let you use Burst mode, witch is taking multiple shots after each other.
jeg trengte verktøy til å ha med i sekekn når jeg syklet, men når jeg trengte å bruke det så ble jeg jammen skuffet. det er er verdig nedslitt fra fabrikken.ingen av umbrakonøklene passer til noen av umbrakoskruene på mine sykler, de er rettog slett for små.
positivt: ikke noe positivt å skrive
negativt: er som nedslitt verktøy, så du komemr til å slite ut skriene fordi de er altfor slå, jeg har kjøt Lezyne SV 10 verktøy og park tool AWS-10,AWS-9, og torxTWS-2 og de passer helt perfekt.
slark, umbrakoskruene som holder verkøye sammen løsner altfor ofte,
you will definitely feel the stitching,and and that you got the glove on but it its still a wearable glove
these gloves do not have a knuckle protection even it might look like they do for you.
the part of the glove that got camo on it wears fast, it will wear out when washed often,the colours will fade,the small venting holes will be bigger or rip apart.
Protection on the fingers and and padding on the palm and side, so you wont get scratched when you hit a tree,but if will not give you full protection its not like knee or elbow pads
The synthetic leather from the palm extends over the finger tips so the stitching won’t wear off or rip, and its comfortable,not like on the Mavic’s or Shimano gloves where the stitching came upward and under my finger nails.
special stitching with touch screen support,and it works well.
not very comfortable, but wear able, but if you want very comfy gloves these are not for you,You can clearly feel the seams
the hook and loop strap do wear out very fast, father Ca 2 month it worn out
the protection pads are bad, not like on the Poc Index DH Vpd 2.0, witch is my favourite glove so far.
the touch screen stitching began to wear.
the glued-on rubber is peeling off, but this is normal, you can’t glue rubber on fabric and expect to stay on.
the vent on the left long finger rip
I can’t recommend these gloves,the lack of comfort and durability makes this a Not recommend product.
