    Royal Nuevo vs. Custom Nuevo

    Honestly, the only difference I can figure out is that one is black and 8 grams heavier. Am I missing something?

    custom nuevo = sealed bearing
    royal nuevo= loose ball bearing

    why not go w/ rx-1? they're lighter, and as smooth and sealed.

    How about get neither because you're wasting money unless you use slotted track cleats.

    Seriously, no one cares about how blingy your pedals are.

    Agreed. If the only thing that makes the Customs "custom" is sealed bearings, its not for me.

    If you have a track frame = high BB, I'd vote for some older mtn pedals. Great stuff, if a tad wider sometimes.
