Danbjpa, where did you find these and how much did they cost? They are always out of stock everywhere I have tried to buy them.

Buy the Nanogram cleats from Speedplay, they come with aluminum screws and a carbon fiber insert.

Bought a couple of things out of the norm recently....
Flyxii saddle. 103gms. claimed 100 +/- 10

Hylix 400mm 27.2 seatpost. 180gms. claimed 170. Now cut down slightly and weighing in @ 155g
(also had to buy Bonty ears to get them to pair together).

Initial setup with the post was a bit of a pain, but after that its been fine.
Saddle is comfy enough. Not as good as my AX endurance was, but that broke :-/ Probably done around 600m on it, inc a few biggish 90 milers round the hills of the peaks and on the cheshire plain. Seems pretty well made.

Seatpin feels a bit "cheap", but then again, it was. Time will tell as to its longeivity.

Its lost me a good 120g over my old setup- slr Ti and fsa sl carbon (145 + 236 cut down)...
Both companies easy enough to deal with and delivery was pretty good :-)


Powertap failed yet again (torque tube no4), but my LBS has as usual been fantastic and dug their heels in with Paligap the UK importer, and insisted it was repaired FOC even though it was out of warranty; that came back with new G3 internals, so hopefully that will last a while now. The money i would have had to pay for the repair, went straight back in the shop for this, and a few other things...

Seasons over for me now, so going to have to wait until next year to try it

Hi,

Do those shoes come with valgus built in ? because mine did, I didn't realize till one month of use. I had to used wedges to make them normal.

Something like this:
