Appreciate the reply Benjamin!

That sounds great. I really like the idea of the pedals as a weight weenie but the design of just bushings and no bearings has me skeptical. As you said there is a weight limit and I happen to hover on that limit which just persuades me to look elsewhere. The search for light,...more

Hey Jibb!

For context I've ridden and raced DH for around 12 years, owned a few bikes and definitely a few different pedals over the years. I'm extremely specific when it comes to set-up and keeping my bikes in good working order/taking care of them

I've had the pedals on there for around 18months now and have loved them since day 1. The grub screws have not been replaced, which I may have to do soon. I've probably averaged around 80km/week on it, with closer to 120km/week for the last 3 months. To be fair there is a rider weight limit for the pedals (around 85kg I think) and I'm sitting around 72kg plus gear. I've got a set of the ME05's on my DH bike (bought maybe 6months back) and had no issues with those either. I keep the bike in good order (clean after every ride) and am generally pretty smooth when riding, whether or not that has had an impact, who knows. like anything you'll find 50% of the market complains and the other 50% is happy, probably some pretty big common denominators in there . . . I would happily buy another set, however given the amount of spares and rebuild kit/s available I'm sure that will keep me covered if and when I need it.

Nice build!
How do you find the pedals?
Asking as I've seen bad reviews
