Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I had a pair of the road version of the Olympic pedals way back in the 1970s. The were low cost look-alikes for the Campy Record Strada and Pista pedals, but totally inferior quality. The bearings on mine literally crumbled and pulverized due to terrible metallurgy. I replaced the bearings, but they never were smooth. If you'd like I can move this thread to C&V, where you may get more definitive information.

Note the spelling of "Olimpic" =0) I already have it posted at the C&V. ;0)
