Strengths:    Amazing grip, decently lightweight, nice looking

Weaknesses:    This is a great pedal but the "four bearings per pedal" doesn't seem to make much difference in the long run.

Bottom Line:   
These pedals grip extremely well and I scored them for a good price but in reality they're not crazy durable because of the 4 bearing system. I've owned many pedals and the best out of them are a pair of Kore Flats that I've had for almost ten years but unfortunately there seized in a set of steel bmx cranks so I'm SOL. My right side crux pedal has quite a bit of play in it after 6 months of riding and I'm just waiting for it to fail. I have had very good luck with the MG-1s, they're cheap and hold up for awhile, the only downside is they don't take rock impacts well and the pins rip out quite easily. If you can get these pedals cheap I would go for it but I wouldn't pay full retail for them.

F65x vs CAADX disc vs CRUX disc?

I cant tell from the geometry charts how different the bikes are. Does anyone have any first hand experience with them? If I get the CAADX the ultegra will be switched to Force. Should I think about upgrading brakes to BB7s? I don't know what will be involved in upgrading to hydro brakes when they ... Read More »

Crux Owners Help

I am in the process of building up my new Crux with a single ring up front. To my surprise, it appears as if nobody makes a direct mount chain keeper. Am I wrong? Any other owners out there, what did you use?Read More »

Specialized Crux vs Cannondale Super X

I currently ride an 09 Trek XO1. It's a decent enough bike, but I ride a 62 cm (I'm 6'6", 230lbs), so I end up with a lot of head deflection and I'd like something stiffer. I'm considering making a move. I have a CAAD9 and love it, so naturally I want to give the C'Dale a look. The only reason I ... Read More »
