Essentially, through choosing a different and not 100% compatible style of cleat as compared to the Look Keo you are treading into out of spec. instantly. So, either you accept that and don't worry because you can't know when or if the cleats stop working (after all, ride conditions will play a big role as will probably the users walking habits in cycling shoes). Or, you simply replace your Look cleats with Extendo and avoid the issue.
First i decided to post this thread, after i read that people who have Bepro and Assioma have bigger problems with Expedo Cleats vs Look Original, but also issuess with Look original cleats. Still not enough details about this, just comments (Read in Ray review, and comments bellow..)
Also i think 6 deg of float of Expedo cleats will be too much for me (dont know if i dont try it
I think the take away message from the dcr article was essentially "works fine, just change your cleats when it doesnt".
To me look more like "Ok, let's mention this without any conclusion (so ok, i done that in the test, even i did not say anything), and let's hide this possible issue in all details which are not important if pedals not work as their primary function: Beeing pedals" So a lot of details about power thing, and no detail or even comparation of their primary function (if they are look compatible, why not comparation at all with Look pedals?) .. And some of his reviews, im taking with grain of salt. For example he is so confident with recommandation of Wahoo KICKR trainers, and in same time so many complaints and problems around about them (which he dont mention at all). But let's back on our topic... (again he choose to talk details about software thing, but not on mechanical quality and issuess)
I bought a pair last year. only one side worked. spent hours trying to get it working, and diagnostics noted no problems. shipped it back and went to vectors. no problems.
Did u had a chance to ride them at all? If u do please tell me how u compare them in overall pedaling feel vs Look pedals?
I'm hanging out for vector 3's just because they look better haha.
Im more in Favero direction vs Vector 3 because:
Still thinking Vector 3 just because their advanced cycling dynamics (look that can help in fitting ideal position), and yes, they look better
Mine are still on back order, hopefully in a few weeks I’ll have them and can give an impression to those that are interested
Where did u purchase u'rs? And i'll be very thankfull if u do the detailed comparation to ur old pedals (hope they are Look
), and overall pedaling feel..
I’m very happy with mine, they work great and weigh less than vector 3
I’m using them with the grey Keo grip cleats, no issues but they were new.
Yes, as i mentioned, im thinking Favero because they are lighter (and cheaper
Where did u purchase u'rs? And what pedals u used before? Can u be more detailed in comparation? (just as pedals, for power and similar things, i allready have idea). When i used Keo Grip Cleats on my Look pedals, there were some issues.
On Keo Max after 1000 km, the overal clip in/clip out was not so perfect (after i remove part of grip rubber, everything fine again), on Keo Blade 2 ti, creaking noise. So i just switched to Non-Grip gray version, and im very satisfied (and for walking i use cleat rubber covers). BTW, on last pair of this NonGrip Cleats i rode 3200 km before i need to switch them
So if Favero Assioma work same as Look pedals in overall feel using original Look Keo Non Grip version gray cleats, then that's it, i found my power meter. And still wondering what is negative side of less surface area in Faveros's vs Look Keo Blade 2 (when i switched from the Keo Max to Keo Blade 2, i prefer overall pedal feeling on Blade 2. Not sure if thats was because of lower stack, bigger surface area or both...) But in any way dont want to compromse my pedaling comfort with switching to new power meter pedals..Another thing which is kinda important to me, im using Ergon Cleat tool (to be able to adjust my cleats position). When i tried using compatible Look Cleats (which was not Look), i could not use this tool (the cleats wont fit in the tool).
Not sure if Expedo cleats are exactly the same shape (so this tool using is possible), or will be similar problem (if i have to use their cleats)
