But certainly I'd also be interested to hear what others think about it.

Your pedals are from the PD-R8000 or PD-6800 series? Pedals being a separate purchase from bikes normally, were these a special deal or something?
My older pedals are 6800. I got the new ones off Amazon but did not pay attention they were the longer axel. I have not installed the new ones yet so I think I can return them and get the normal length ones. If I want to try a little wider position I can always use a few washers that will probably get me about 2mm on each side. I have also read something about the 8000 series having a little lower stack height???
