Ritchey Logic Pedals

Is anyone using the Ritchey Logic pedals to tour?
If so, which model and what are your thoughts?

I use the black V4 mountain pedal. I bent a couple V3 pedals, but the V4 appears to be strong enough for me. The rubber seal on one has a tendencey to slide inwards towards the crank so I use electric tape wrapped around the shaft to keep it in place. Left pedal started clicking a week ago (after about 3k miles) , I added grease to both inner and outer ball bearings, the click is much quieter but still there, I might have cracked a bearing. From the factory the threaded cap on the end that you open to access bearings was really tight, I had to put the pedal in a vice to hold it to get the cap unthreaded.

I like it enough that I bought the same pedal for another bike that I built up a couple months ago.

The V4 cleats also work well in a shimano pedal (M324) that I have on my foldup bike.

If you get the micro pedal that has SPD fitting on only one side, that has a special cleat, normal SPD cleats do not work on that pedal. This is a bummer if you have more than one pair of shoes like I do.
