    Hi there,

    To make a long story short, I carry a large electric fat bike in the trunk of my Corolla. Fits fine but the pedals make it difficult.... I first looked into folding pedals - but don't trust they will last and reasonably priced options up here in Canada are non existing.

    I found quick release pedals made by Wellgo with really happy owners. They are now on their 2nd generation with a different quick release connector.

    My question: are any of you familiar with them and can provide some feedback? I weigh 180lb, like to ride mostly off road and ride often standing on the pedals. My concern is pedals either breaking or coming off due to quick release mechanism failure (I found a lot of positive comments on the Wellgo 1st gen pedals, not for these).

    thanks for your help!

    It takes less then 1 min to install a pedal why not just buy a top quality pedal and remove pedal. ??
    That’s what I do, I find it takes longer to put the tires on then the pedal

    Might end up doing that... I already have the front wheel, battery, seatpost, rear bag, pannier to remove-install, trying to avoid more steps - winters get really cold here in Montreal, not cool to work with gloves and quite cold without

    Long T handle Allen can be easily operated in heavy snow gloves.
    I would think the quick release wouldn’t be doable with gloves.
    And if iced wouldn’t function properly

    MKS makes some nice quick release pedals as well, with a variety of different platform options.
