I think by the looks of it, Da Bomb have a version, currently on sale at CRC for 60 quid

They are double the price of Shimano Saint pedals which look nicer, work well & are lighter.

Eh? Look nicer... personal taste, I think they look ok, but not great. They will work very well, but they sure as hell aren't lighter!! Not standing up for the hopes, but the saints aren't the best out there.

What's it's USP? Don't we already have 11mm thick pedals kicking about? I seem to remember Nukeproof or someone doing them... It does seem like we're inundated with cheap imports with no particular advantage these days.

--edit--
I hadn't recieved an email with the more recent posts :oops: plus, I just looked on Nukeproof an they're all 17mm pedals.

Canfield do the crampon pedals. 6-10mm thick.
340g and under £100 ($150) for the "ultimate" version

Hard to say, I think that place tends to be expensive. Would guess at £70 here.

More things that will make you faster simply by virtue of the brand on the product! £100 for the bars, £80 for the stem. Again, stuff from Dirt. Thompson reckons that virtualy all bars are bent out of shape then the bulge that is created ground down smooth - and they have figured out a way of making bars without that problem.

Crazy money. I've got a Thomson stem on my bike, it was there when I bought it. God knows what some sucker paid for it.

I can report that it behaves exactly like a stem. Just like all the other ones I've ever had.
