Are VP and Feimin the same company?The pedals are clearly different from the ones in the photos.  They seem to be a decent quality though.  The reflectors have BS numbers and you can't see the bearings around the axles, they might be sealed.See More

Thanks, but I am ok in my non-cycling state. I'm just one of those that can't, and not through lack of trying! It may seem odd that a non-cyclist has joined a cycling forum but I joined because I'm trying (on behalf of others) to pass on unwanted cycling newsletters and magazines to others who might have an interest and this forum was suggested to me.

Ace. Thanks again.

Hi CKS. Thanks for the link. I'll get on to it. 
Are you an administrator for this site? I'm looking for a spokesperson for a Birmingham cycling group/forum to speak about bicycle thefts. If you could point me in the right direction that'd be great. Cheers.

Hello CKS,

 All of City Centre officers details are already on the West Midlands Police web site including a photo. I do not fear / worry about my health and safety If I did I wouldn't be a police officer. I have worked in our Great City for 7 years and never had a problem. We have the skills / ability to deal with most circumstances.
