I personaly didnt.. I tried the 50mm spindle lenght but had to go back to the standard 53mm, since it did feel different, too narrow for me.
p.s. it is not only the sidi shoes and pedals that we use in commom.. I also have the very same (cheap, lets admit) hangging scale.. is your accurate at all? mine will vary 50gr in my bike´s weight every now and them!
Haha I got std axles. No point in messin with that. I do like that the sidi ergo3 speedplay shoes allowed me to lower my whole postion on the bike by 4mm. Thing is I already had a 10mm ultra lite spacer on my bike and while I have plenty of carbon headset spacers I had only the 3mm in the ultralight config so i had to take 7mm off the steerer tube instead of jUst 4..
Looks great though as there is only a 3mm spacer between topcap and stem now.
My scales read at least 20g heavy, they are not that accurate but they are consistent which is a start
