All things considered, $179 is not too bad for a sub 400g pedal. They look nice to boot.

Solid offerings from Raceface. I’m between these pedals & Chromag scarabs.

I love it when my shoes “dog” into my pedals.

Please, proof read your copy & preferably have it done by a different person.

These kinds of typos are rampant lately.

@Chader, maybe because they’re dog tired covering Eurobike and loading things up as quickly as possible. Cut them some slack and if you really can’t understand the writing then go somewhere else.

@chader, YO DOG – take your proofreading skills elsewhere.

Maybe they should take fuzzy photos too.

Speed is apparently the only thing that matters and quality is worth sacrificing?

You ever heard a joke you didn’t get immediately? I read a reddit thread last night with a few great ones:
