The old ones did not work in these conditions.

The new ones do because of their much more open design. Mind you, this is my own experience.

Besides that: How can anyone say they do not work in severe conditions, when Nys and a load of other world cup riders use them to great effect in deep muck?

Well, on really mucky days Nys and the boys have someone cleaning their bikes and pedals every lap. Often, that is not the case for us punters, where the "pit" is just a place to leave extra wheels or bikes in case of emergency. I would imagine the pressure washer would be a big help.

"But the pros do it" is an argument that often does not work for non-pros.
Nys gets money and support, most of us don't. If he has a defect, he gets help. His mechanic will spray his pedals with layers of baking soda and lick them counterclockwise if necessary.

Because the pros get 8 carbon frames a year, of which 4 disintegrate, does not mean it is the right thing for non-pros.


Just sayin'
