I'm unable to remove the V8 rod in the pedals.  Any suggestions?  Hammer harder?

Problem was I purchased a used V8 and there was protective cushion glued over the bottom screw, that I wasn't aware of.  After removing this third screw the rod came out easily.

Any video review of this product yet? Do they fold same way as normal ones? Get loose over time? How reliable those washers are? They are printed using which material ?

Hey guys - I bought a set of these from Jason and I am here to report: they are a great improvement. I don't have very big feet (size 8) but the original pedals were still way too small. With the originals my feet would start to ache on long rides, with these bigger (and padded) pedals it makes the V8 much more comfortable with less foot ache.

They fit perfectly and installation was super easy - it took maybe 5 minutes.

ps: I also highly recommend the Amazonbasics guitar stand... as you can see it is perfect for holding a muddy V8 :)

They fold the same, the looseness is controlled the same way as the originals (tip: just tighten the little screw on the bottom if your pedals get loose). He sends new washers and a new rods, everything you need, it's all from the same company, just as strong/durable as the originals, etc etc.

It's a logical upgrade if you spend a lot of time on your V8, recommended!

Just installed my new v10 pedals on my v8. Installation took a bit of effort since the screws that hold the metal rod in place are hard to take out and put in. WD40 made the job much easier and I probably would have saved a lot of time if I had utilized it earlier.

The new pedals are so awesome. While I think that $120 is expensive for pedals, the improvement in comfort is worth it. Turning radius is still tight and the bigger pedals tilt up slightly when fully extended which I believe helps keep the pedals from scraping. If the larger pedals increase the chance of pedal scrape, it is by a negligible amount, especially considering the increase in comfort.

I received my pedals in 2 days and Jason was readily available to walk me through my minor issue with tightening the pedals. Highly recommend this upgrade for anyone with a v8.

I installed my V10 XL pedals today on my solowheel glide 3. I also had the issue of the pedal not staying up. After chatting with Jason at ewheels and @Jonesq I figured out I was not tightening the two side screws enough. I was worried about stripping them. Tightened them up and then the bottom screw would adjust the pedal drop tightness just like on og pedals.

I also had the issue of not quite perfect 3d printed washers. I used an 8mm drill bit and gently made the center smoother so the rod would slide through and after that everything was a-ok with them.

After getting these installed I went on my furthest ride today (7 miles, only a month or so in on euc's) , and the pedals were a very nice upgrade. Especially with my larger (11.5 US) shoes.

@Kevin Graehl above asked for before and after pics, attached are some I took during the process.
