Ergon PC2 replacement?

I know these pedals are quirky and not everybody's cup of tea but they suit me very well with my right foot deformed with a prize bunion. Unfortunately they now are discontinued and impossible to source a new pair of size L in Europe. The pedals can't be rebuilt and I'm noticing the first signs of wear on those I have. I am looking for alternatives. I'd be grateful for suggestions and, indeed any pointer to a new set of PC2s is anyone knows where they can be found. I need them for my Thorn sterling MTB which I use 60% on tarmac 40% on

For those not familiar with the design they can be seen here: Ergon PC2 pedals

Any help gratefully received.

Halfords sell those pedals, I don’t think they ship outside of UK though?
These guys have some too, if you give them a call I’m sure they will ship them anywhere

Thank you. Halfords search doesn't find any Ergon pedals unfortunately. I have emailed London Green Cycles as they don't mention if the stock they have is large size which is what I need. Everywhere I have located stock so far only has small. Fingers crossed.

What signs of wear are you concerned about?

Ingus bushings are available and are easy to replace.
Thanks. There is play developing. I contacted Ergon who say these pedals can't be serviced. If you have a link to show how it can be done I'd be very grateful.

Loch side.

No, I don't have a link. But replacing bushings is easy. Those pedals have a nut on the one end that secures the axle. Undo the cap on the outboard side of the pedal with an allen key. Now the 10mm nylock nut is exposed. Take that out using a thin-walled 10mm socket.

Now pull out the axle.

Measure up the Igus bushing and buy a new one on the web and replace.

Pause it at 2:04 for a look at what the axle and bushings look like. The bushings are those two white plastic (polymer in fancy talk) bushings. They're standard and not made for Ergon specifically.

That's amazing! Thank you so much. I'll look at that this weekend.
