It's not so much that DX's are just old & hard to find, but these were THE pedal to have back in the day. They just felt perfect.
Ophidian sums it up best: "When I raced in the 80's I bought every pair I found while traveling because I never wanted to be without a set and there were so hard to find in 9/16."
You look at a lot of the old pics from the 80's: Hoffman, Fiola, Blyther, etc. and you'll find that often they're riding DX's. I've read that Rick Moliterno still has a stockpile of them so that he can keep riding them.
