mmm shiney fast

From here.

Look great, I'd be interested in how thick they are. At £120 though they're not in my ball park!

Absolutely ridiculous price, don't know how they get away with charging that.

They'll sell though, by the bucket load. Just like the seatclamps, skewers and everything else the make.

Gawd they're fugly! Having four of them don't make em prettier either! I'll stick to nanos; very good mixture of aesthetics, build quality and price.

You put your feet on them, smear them in mud, clatter them off rocks - how pretty do pedals have to be - function first, if they work and it doesnt cost any more then I can add form.

This is where Wellgo have it nailed - huge range from slim and light to thick and tough, with good bearings. All at good prices.

I'm a bit surprised that Hope haven't devised their own version of SPD yet.

They did, but using their usual costing model they would have cost over £1000 a pair and Hope realised even they would never get away with that just because they are British.

Yeah, you'd have to be a div to buy these tbh. They're going to sell like hot cakes.
