I searched- but could not find anything recent.
Anyone using the newer Xpedo M-force 8 pedals?
Have they fixed the durability problems? (Broken tabs that leave you unable
to clip in)?
Weight and price is attractive.

No idea on how Xpedo were previously but having tried pretty much everything I wouldn't swap from Xpedo xmf08tt. See the "best pedals" thread here on WW for lots of positive experiences of these pedals

These are great pedals and I could not recommend them more ! I have always used XTR's over the years, Just as good as XTR, but lighter and made from TI what more do you want ! Customer service is excellent too..

Ive had there tripple ti xc pedals while i was 10 kg over there weight limit, i rode them hard for at least 4 years and then figured its been nice (; swapped them for xtr pedals thinking it would be a wise move.
I wished i saved up a bitt more and bought there new ones

Any idea where you could get these in the UK? I can't seem to find them anywhere!

Brilliant find, also picked up a pair. So my immediate first thought was can these be tuned lighter? Anyone running Ti spindles or otherwise find a way to weenie these up?

The pedals on offer at jejamescycles are described as "Spindle:Cromoly" so are they "M-FORCE 8 CR"?

I am afraid that may be the case. Ill post the weight when they come in. At the same time do the torontocycles ti spindles fit? They will be cheaper than the ones that come with the ti already installed.

If that's the case I'll definitely return them at once. The page says "Ti" loud and clear, and even lists the weight for the Ti version.

I'd be very disappointed. Please keep us posted when you receive yours. I'll post if I receive mine first.

Im glad that you saw that weight too. I was pretty sure it said the same when I ordered but mentioned cromo spindles, hence the confusion. Now it states M Force 8 Ti CR, and the 255g weight.
