Did you turn in the right direction? One side will have a left hand thread, don't ask me which one :D
Maybe not even that, this video says that Wellgo CroMo spindle nuts are right/left threaded, but Ti spindles are right threaded. I inquired Xpedo for service info and will report here when they reply. If both screws are regular right threaded, I'd try to replace these with Ti. Chances are slim I'll be able to find a left handed Ti screw. I wonder why Xpedo did not make all the steel parts out of Ti: springs, spring tension bolt, spring axle, inner race bolt are all steel, quite a bit to save if you have access to right tools to manufacture replacements.
That was my experience. I have steel Wellgo (same as XPEDO) MG-8 and rebranded MG-8 with Ti spindle. I was suprised when swapping the Ti spindles to the new bodies.

Hello. My xpedos are the basic version, with cr spindle, 210gr.

I have riden them for 7 years and about 42000km (26200ml) and still working flawless. Never serviced. smooth turning, no play in axles.
I like to walk with my bike shoes with no problem, so i have used standard Northwave mtb shoes. Last year I have optimized shoe weight with a pair of Bontrager RL, tuned soles to spd cleats.

Road pedals are relatively heavy because the own pedal, and the cleats and bolts. Cleats worn quite fast and sometimes broke. Some of my friends have broken while riding,
Theese xpedos+cleats+bolts are light durable and cheap. Now with road shoes, 210gr lighter. Very happy with them.
Never used road pedals, Look type or similar, so i can´t tell about power transfer, etc. Theese spedos work like shimano mtb pedal. Good click and unclick. little play with the body when clipped. If soles are rigid, can´t feel any flex because the small surface of the pedal. For me they are almost perfect.

The inner seal has popped out of my left XRF06TT. I tried to push it back, but there's no space for it to fit :noidea: The pedal body has a very minute horizontal play, the other pedal does not exhibit this. Any ideas? Do I have to disassemble the whole pedal in order to put the seal back?

Update:
The body retaining screw was loose. I've disassembled the pedal, but still can't figure out how to fit the seal back.

This is completely different from previous revision posted up the thread:

Looks like inner bearings moved inside, I'll try to press those back in.

I’m wondering why they are so much heavier than mine? Is that steel spindle?

I also use these for Road, and the M-force 8 on my MTB, both with Titanium spindle. I agree with everything you said, I also use a Mtb shoe since it’s easier to walk around, same shoe for both bikes...so simple. And yes, very durable, neat looking, light and fair price.

To fix the issue, I gently tapped the inner bearing back with a socket head for seal to have space to fit into. Then I reassembled the pedal. This thing is dead simple. The left pedal retaining screw has right handed thread (screws in clockwise). For some reason, it unscrewed and allowed the inner bearing to slide, which in turn moved the seal. @StanK probably had exactly the same issue with his XRF06TT.
