What's the experience of real users of these Orb pedals? Have they also been improved? If they're dangerous, and they may well be, what are the dangers?
Haven't had any big problems, though they do give me
a big stack height with my Nike shoes. It's also
a bit of a trick get the right number of shims in the cleat so that
the pedal attaches firmly but still rotates.
* in addition to rotational float (like Speedplays), the orbs
allow side-to-side (Q-factor) play. Might be possible to slip
up in a hard sprint or a tight corner
* there's a second way to release: point toe slightly
out and push hard forward. This could mean unexpected
release for a duckfooted sprinter. M2Racer makes this sound like a feature
but I wonder. (I'm pigeon-toed so I don't worry anyway.)
Anymore people have first hand experience with these pedals?
I noticed that aebike.com is selling them for $163 US dollars.
Going to m2racer's website sells them $228 US dollars.
They are really light at 140g for a pair of pedals including the cleats.
I'm just curious.
I'm using look PP-396 right now and they are tanks, but at least
I can use the same shoe on my bike and when I take indoor cycling classes.
