Has anyone tried these pedals?
Those look really rad. I'd like to hear reviews as well.

The Chrome backdoor sale page has a bag called the Senator on sale for over half off ($49 form $110). It looks like a giant rolltop messenger/bucket. I just ordered the grey/black Brigadier from the page because I need a large bag for travel.

the sleeve for $9 is nice, mine is similar but didn't come with a handle.

I'd be tempted by the Senator if it wasn't so massive. If I want to carry a bag that size I'll just grab my backpack

I had those "LOOK" pedals on my cannondale and they were nice, I liked them quite a bit. Not sure how the knockoffs are but I would imagine they're pretty much the same

Keep in mind the sidewalls on the Sport model aren't as durable as on the Urban Elite. Still a great deal!

Are these over or under or true to size? Concerned about clearance on the 28.

I love mine, especially now that they've got some miles on them and and aren't so sticky (I literally couldn't skid when they were new). They're considerably heavy but I've rolled over all kinds of gnarly stuff without incident.

might be worth grabbing as a cheap beater, just recognize this line before anyone orders

"These frames are blemished closeouts. They are brand new but have cosmetic defects incuding paint blemishes."

I ordered those, and they got to a USPS sorting facility within 30 miles of my house before being lost in transit. When they were 10 days past due, I was issued a refund by DailySteals. *sigh* No light up the night bike bling for me this time.

You know, I've had the same problems twice in a row with our local USPS in Champaign. Ridiculous. One time my package showed up in a shredded envelope encased by a plastic bag, and it was 2 months overdue.

Aerospokes suck.


However, Retrogression might be stocking them in the near future...$295 might sounds good now, but Scrod is probably going to have them for a lower price.

Aerospokes don't "suck". Aerospokes are exactly what they should be and do just what they were designed to do. When you're riding fast, an Aerospoke will actually cause you to use less effort to keep going fast. Are they heavy? Sure. Does it seem as though they are trying to kill you on windy days? They definitely do. Are they "aerodynamic"? I don't have access to a wind tunnel for testing but considering that I can feel a difference when my 'spoke is mounted backwards, I'd say they must be. Will we be selling them at some point soon? I'm not 100% sure but it is a possibility.
