Look Keos - which ones?

Postby giant man » Sun Jun 14, 2009 09:55 am

Finally decided to upgrade to Look Keo pedals from the older deltas, love them as I do.

But which model of Keo to get I am not sure - the difference between the Keo carbons and the Keo carbon/ti is about 70 quid and a little less weight. Are the carbon/ti worth the extra dosh or should I settle for the carbons?

Think the difference is just the weight and £70 is a lot of difference in price. They sometimes says about improve bearings or something but not sure.

IIRC the ti ones have an extra bearing so may be longer lasting.

I have the carbons on my Look and sprints on the others. I think the carbons are the best compromise personally

what's the point in making them out of carbon when you can make them just as light out of reinforced plastic, nobody will ever see them and they will just look like non-carbon ones within a week?!?!

altho ive only got my look keo carbon with cro-moly spindle setup on bike. compared to my speedplay zeros, its an absolute joy clipping in with the look keo. make sure u have a 8mm allen key if u choose the cro-moly spindle. i couldnt justify spending £80 extra for titanium spindles(15-20g less than the cro-mo one) i bought mine from ribble with zero float grip cleats and cleat covers.
