How did you do that?

As for the Ti I scrapped them, too damned much, around 60 just to produce one set, I'd have to sell them at 100 and no one would by them. These are lighter anyways, saves 20g. So far mine are holding up great and same with the other people that I have riding them.

My sig?

Right click on it and then copy and paste into your web browser, it explains all.

It's a shame ti is so expensive.

Will the black anodized wear after a short while and no longer be black?

It does wear after awhile on the edge. It took me about 500 miles to wear some off, so it's pretty durable. 99% still intact, so they hold up very good, no deformation of the insert at all so far.

Hey superlight are they compatible with my zero-ti pedals?
If they are I want a set.
