I didnt have much luck with my Boomslangs.I got them in September 2014 and by January 2015 1 was sounding dry and gritty and the other was sounding VERY dry and gritty.The pin wrenches i had wouldnt fit,so i got in touch with LBS about Specialized pin tool,they got in touch with Specialized and i was told the pin tool and service kit would be available later this year!.
So off the pedals went to Specialized for a free service under warranty.Got the pedals back 2 weeks later with new bearings,fitted them to the bike,gave 1 a spin by hand to see how it felt and the pedal platform unscrewed its self from the bearing cover!!.So off they went again to Specialized,few weeks later i got a new pair back but decided to exchange them for Hope F20's that came with hollow pins so more grip than the regular pins.
Its a shame,the Boomslang pedals are really grippy,not too much concave and took some heavy hits without bending or breaking any pins.I just didnt want to send pedals off for a something as simple as a service because the pin tool wasnt available until later in the year!!.

dude.. it's a freakin' letter of intent, NOT a contract. they still have to work out the details. college athletes sign these all the time and back out and go to another school. a letter of intent by definition is the acknowledgement of willingness to do...more
