Speedplay zero Titaniums. when you compare whole packages (cleats + pedals) they weight about the same as the Dura Ace + cleats but when the bike is on the scale by itlself it's about 50g lighter! I have chro-mo but going to get some titanium spindles. That will set my back $170 for a pair of 160g (both) aftermarket titanium Zeros. Well worth it if you ask me :)

Yeah, I'd have to say speedplay are the preferred pedal as well, just based on the weight weenie bikes I've seen on here. I've already bought into the whole spd-sl system though, so I'm sticking with it.

Dura Ace pedals are $100 cheaper. That's just silly.

almost correct...true weight weenies will use Speedplay Zero modified with after market titanium spindles (e.g., Ward)....you can shave off a couple of grams by going with a shorter spindle...more important, you'll save $$ compared to buying the stock Speedplay...

But you forgot to add the weight of the giant cleat...

Funny thing- Shimano lists the weight of their pedals sans cleat...and the Shimano cleats weigh the same as the giant Speedplay cleats. Total system weights are ~235 grams for the Speedplay Zero Ti and ~318 grams for Shimano. For the $100 difference on bikes that typically exceed $3k total, money well spent.

Who's right?

And if you're a true weight weenie/crackhead, I'd expect to see something silly like these,

Seems like shimano cleats are 69g and speedplay cleats 119g with 3 bolt system and 70g with 4 bolt system. I guess when you compare the Ti Zeros with the 4 bolt system you come with an advantage.

Ti Zeros w/ cleats 4 bolts - 234g
Ti Zeros w/ 3 bolt cleats - 283g
Shimano SPD Sl DA w cleats - 310g

So yes, the Zeros win. However with the Zero Nanos you'd be even better. I think they are under 200g with cleats! We haven't considered look Keo carbons which I think are close to the Zeros too.

Solve that problem by buying 4-hole speedplay specific shoes, and eliminate that oh so heavy adapter....

c_mack9 02-02-14 09:33 PM

So you have to spend $100 PLUS but some other $300 shoes to save 76g? Nah, I'm good with my 105s...

A new-to-me 2012 Opus Vivace frame with Easton cockpit, and a new set of Flo 30 wheels. Up next is the new 6800 group to tie it all together. At the rate the ice and snow is melting around here I should get to try it all out around mid August or so.

looking forward to try it

Just to mention here that this shell is awesome!
Of course, given that you want to cycle and it is cold and raining outside :)
Tested it a few times, including long (130km) run with rain, snow and wind, and it worked perfectly, keeping water out and making a good job breathing out the sweat... the shape is also very nice, it is cut for when you're in cycling position.

PatrickGSR94 02-03-14 10:11 AM

wait, did you just say you did a 130 km RUN?? Or was that just reference to a long bike ride?

bike ride :) I'm not able to run even 1km ...

PatrickGSR94 02-04-14 09:41 AM

haha got it. It took me a year to work my way up from running just a few hundred feet at a time, up to 2 miles. But that 2 miles was still very slow. Then I got heavy into cycling and pretty much quit running about a year ago.

Well I wanted to use the rest of my birthday skrilla for bike stuff, but decided to be smart and get a new 2 TB USB 3.0 external hard drive, since my old backup drive has been on the fritz for about 6 months, meaning this whole time we've been running on borrowed time pretty much by having no backup. I had a HD die in 2009 with no backup, and I lost almost all my files back then. I don't want to go through that again.

The Boulevard pedals? They do look like the A530's a lot, but the pedal platform is plastic instead of metal. About 50g lighter than my A530's, too. Wonder how good the bearings are.
