For everyone running flats I have a question for you. I was looking at the Oneup Components Aluminum pedals and saw they are not compatible with Sram carbon cranks. So does that mean I really can't use them with my XO carbon cranks?
Thanks in advance.

Not a carbon crank user but interested -- what makes these pedals unable to tighten to sram carbon cranks? It's not like they have different threads than any other pedal?? I have the oneup composites.

It works but only if you use 2-3 pedal washers. Which is what I’m doing. No issues with my XO1 cranks even with multiple park days and countless rock strikes.

If of any help, OneUp posted an explanatory comment on the alum pedal/SRAM carbon crank compatibility issue in this thread (see comment #23):

OneUp was awesome and took care of me (discussed in another thread) but I found out the hard way you also can't run a boot on a non-SRAM carbon crank, which isn't the end of the world but not ideal either. My only feedback for OneUp is that they should probably literally tape something to the pedal telling you not to use a boot. Because they're pedals, it's not like I am reading installation instructions when they come.

Interesting thread. I've been happily chugging along on OneUp alloy pedals, including after I switched to some X01 cranks last year. Forget if they needed more than one or two pedal washers, but even with (x-acto-knife-modified) crank end boots, they work beautifully.

I can't understand this concept and why everyone gets so concerned about it. Although perhaps not "compatible" or recommended, the pedals work with Sram carbon cranks, and they work with crank boots (with a tiny amount of material trimmed off the holes in the boots). An extra washer and a razor blade solves the issue entirely...

It would seem there have been damaged cranks. I can't blame oneup for saying to not use them.
