I for one will never buy another Crank Bros product again. I've had 2 set of pedals explode on me.
I had purchased 2 pair of Candy Ti a few years back and they sat unused. A couple of years ago I decided to install them as I was hoping to use the same pedal system for both road and mountain. On the first set, the right pedal started coming apart at less than 1,000 miles though I was still able to make it home. Correspondence with CB yielded nothing other than send them to us and we'll look at them. Hoping it was an aberration, I installed the second set. They came apart, right side again, in less than 500 miles. This happened about 30 miles from home and was the first time I've been stranded on the road in over 40 years of cycling. My previous pedals werre Ritchey mountain and even Nashbar mountain and both have endured over 10 years of abuse with no maintenance. I know they have redesigned the new ones but the reviews are still horrific. I've even got a rebuild kit and don't even feeling like installing it as I wouldn't want to even sell them to an unsuspecting buyer.
Similar story here but mine lasted 20 minutes into my first ride at Brian Head. LONG walk back home after being dropped off by the shuttle van. I had ridden Speedplay for 10 years and decided to "Upgrade to these". Bummed that I missed the entire day with my friends when my brand new pedal blew out. Over a year now bashing the XTR and not a single issue other then they weigh more but last!
