Thanks for the recommendation, I'm also in the UK. No speedplay axles listed on their website or online store now though
I think I had mentioned previously that Speedplay is very protective of its IP. So while it is pointless for them to try to pursue legal action against J&L in China, Speedplay has threatened domestic vendors with legal action, thus TiSpindles.com no longer advertises about replacement spindles for Speedplay. Simply click the Contact Us link to obtain the email address, then send them an email and you will get a response within a business day.

I crashed and almost got hit over by car behind me because my titanium bb axle cracked while sprinting over a small hill. There are some disadvantages in titanium axles and I'm not going near them anymore. :D

Just to have an idea...how much do you weigh and how much power/ watts to you have when sprinting?
