I see the official version is actually going to be released to the public in January - according to Bikerumour.com. No indication of their weight but $400 - $600 depending on steel or ti axles. :shock: I'm still well happy with my custom pair

With the aluminum body at 90 degrees to the bowties, perhaps it eliminates the plastic cleat body wear which would also alleviate the lateral rocking issue that some people have.
Might be a significant improvement even if you don't need the mor open style "Pave" mud shedding features.

The pictures in the Wiggle shot there actually differ fromthe pictures from ones in the bikerumour article. Image Notice the raised contact points on bearing covers and the the pedal end looks more cut off and blunt in comparison. The Wiggle shots are the original ones that Speedplay designed

Aha! Note how the pedal contact points at 90 degrees to the bowties have been flattened to give a high-durability cleat contact point.

Me very interested now. I switched from SPDPLY to DA last year, but I am getting tired of my poor ability to clip in quickly.


Maybe not so interested after I read this:
The price reflects the amount of machining time needed to make each pedal with Stainless axle versions listed at $400 and titanium axles at $600. :evil:

Not at that price for me either.

I'm checking out Bebop next. I like Speedplay but Bebop may last longer, at the expense of a little bit of stack and adjustability of float amount.

Hi Rick,

Did you make any progress on the lateral rocking issue and the new pave pedals?

Thank you

I currently use bebops and like them. They do take some getting used to but the pedals seem practically indestructible. These are well worth a look. The guys who purchased these a decade or more ago still swear by them and a few actually banded together to make replacement cleats (though it seems the cleats last for years) and it seems as if they have just gone back into production.

I think they make a great alternative if like me you prefer not to buy from speedplay.

Hi Mambo,

I have emailed Coombe about how to determine which coloured line cleat to purchase. Am I missing this info their website?

Do you recommend buying an extra cleat or two when you buy, or do they really last ages?

Thank you

I never tried them; I am still on the Dura Ace.

If you want my reasoning:
I like speedplay, and I never really had any serious "rocking" issues that I could feel while riding, but I did note that there was wear that allowed rocking. It seems like a combination of cleat and pedal body wear. So the two most attractive features were the float and the low weight. At one time SPDPLY had an enormous weight advantage, but over the years everyone else seems to have caught up, so even DA is not that much heavier. And although I like foat, I apparently don't need it because my legs have been fine on DA, even with the blue cleats. DA are relatively dirt cheap, rock solid, , the bearings are THE BEST, and the cleats wear FOREVER. I only change them because they end up looking ugly.
With three active bikes, I can get DA, ultegra, and 105, and they all function identically and flawlessly for dirt cheap. If I tried to outfit three bikes with Pave', I would have to cancel my vacations.
So, like all things, there are a series of tradeoffs. I am not a SPDPY "hater", and if you really need float, they are still a great choice. Time also has some good float from what I've heard, but I have never used them.
