I just picked up a set. I recall reading an article about the bushing(?) system they use but I can't seem to find anything on the product page or the rest of the Internet. If anyone can find it or give me more info it would be apriciated.

What do you want to know? Its a polymer bushing but unlike most bushing pedals you can still adjust it to remove play if/when it wears. Bushing allows it to be thinner and still have a strong axle.

This was the info I was looking for. Thanks

Have you had any complaints about those bushings wearing prematurely? Mine worked them selves loose after the first day. I tightened them and haven't really had a chance to ride much since. I had a friend mention his 3 or 4 month old set just continues to work its way loose and are now bottomed out on adjustment. Wasn't sure if he was an odd case, maybe OVER tightening them or if my steering clear of replacing bearings with bushings is well founded.

Chiming in to say that mine developed wobble, I tightened them, and now they're back to wobbling and I can't get rid of it. That being said, I rode JCPCs for years beforehand, so pedal wobble feels totally natural at this point.

All of my grandstands started to wobble after a few weeks. Decent pedal, until the wobble comes in. There's definitely diminishing returns on tightening them back up, that eventually stops working.

I've heard about the wobble from multiple people (some of whom have had multiple pairs), but only in the metal ones. I tightened the fuck out of my plastic pair, and never had an issue

So what I'm hearing is you took [arguably] the best metal pedals in bmx and slimmed them down 3mm by replacing reliable/replaceable bearings with a small hunk of plastic...
