Reli weight saving
But it just doesn't work
(my pedals is Zero Ti, the alu plates suppose work on Zero?)
same problem as here : viewtopic.php?f=3&t=69244
where could we order the original nanogram's aluminum bowtie?
( I think nanogram user also need spare bowties )
I finally got confirmation from a shop after waiting on back-order for 2 months that they will not be receiving any more of these.
Perhaps some rebels will make some in their garage, but I don't think you'll be seeing them sold at online shops any more.
Yes, I also have bowties that don't fit (you referenced the post in this thread). Maybe they are nanogram or Zero plates... I tried filing the plates so they will fit on the pedal and used my old (shorter) screws... however, the performance was awful as the plates still had a slightly different curvature or transition from the pedal body. I could clip in but they clipped out very easily. I never actually rode with them.
Due to laziness and stubbornness, I left my original BTP bowties on even after they started looking horrible. Still work the same, just look very worn out. I think I've got 12,000 km on them. Probably will not last too much longer. Incidently, my cleats are actually lasting longer with the ALU bowties... as the bowties wear, it contacts a slightly different area on the metal cleat spring - so they wear out together... until they explode in harmony
Speedplay, I will use those I have up, toss them out and change brands...
Really sucks, cause they looked cool (black on my white speedplays) and the weight is really good.
The ti units I got from Toronto weren't the correct thickness or angle on the ends.
Don't get me wrong I like Toronto Cycles and have very good luck with them otherwise.
I might be pulling for the Chinese at this point though...........never thought I'd say that...........
I inquired with Speedplay about buying parts for my nanograms. They indicated that they would be happy to rebuild them but I would have to send the pedals to them. I did not push the issue, but he was not willing to send out the parts because of the issues with rebuilding them.
I did use a full ceramic bearing [just like the nanograms] but after last Saturdays group ride, the right bearing exploded and the pedal came off the spindle. I would not use the full ceramic bearing again and ordered the hybrid version.

I tend to agree with you but when you are just playing around and experimenting/tuning ideas and possibly throwing away afterwards, $20 compared to 45 Euro is easier to swallow. But yeah a good working permanant option the Dulights all the way!
