he can put whatever pedals he wants on them. his choice.

imo dont get pc's. they're overrated and everyone has them. yea they're good. i wont deny that. grippy and such. but get something that you dont really see anyone with. its good to be original.

im the only one i have seen with Premium Slim pedals. I love them a lot. Super grippy and dont wear away fast like my Fly Rubens. I'd suggest them. But its deff up to you. look on http://www.danscomp.com to see what you like. =]

Poverty Carmi wont work with profiles, profiles are 48 spline sealed cranks, the poverty carmi is a 8 spline unsealed spindle and bottom bracket...

no, no, no. you need a sealed BB with a 48-splined 19mm spindle. that is the only thing that will work on Profile arms. make sure you get the correct bearing size for your frame too.

Profile does not make cranks with an usealed BB. you are talking about these arms, right- http://www.danscomp.com/452550.php?cat=PARTS ? if you have anything that looks different, your friend did not give you profile arms, he gave you something else. can you post photos of the arms you have?

the poverty BB you are talking about is for 8-splined cranks with an unsealed bearings.

wellgo makes some wonderful pedals. the MG-1's are awesome if you want magnesium pedals. you are correct that you need pedals. pedals that fit on a one-piece crank have a 1/2" spindle and pedals for a three-peice crank are 9/16".
