Sweet deal, new listing for Speedplay Nanogram Zero pedals, listing at only US $629.99 (not pesos}. Get a pair soon before Performance runs out of stock in our ongoing economic crisis. Happy pedaling @ 130 gr...:eek:

I think they missed the whole price point thing completely. I ride a high end bike, but I would not spend that much on pedals. Speedplay marketing genius, YOUR FIRED!

Well said, nbrigato. How can anyone justify gain vs lunatic waste? Who is the intended targeted customer? I do not believe that saving a few grams on your pedals would add any boost to your performance...it is easier to loose a couple of pounds of body weight than forking out someone's hard earned paycheck, eh?

Visit the Weight Weenies forum. Not really my thing, but to each his own, right?
Even if obssessed with the "light weight is better" perception, 600 bucks for a pair of pedals is outrageous, even if anyone could afford it. If I was to spend that kind of money on a pair of road pedals my wife would file for divorce with a steep alimony payment, since I can waste money so easy...

They come with a warning on the underside of the lid "race day use only" being mostly TI they wear really quickly.

The marketing places the pedals on the bikes of pro-tour riders....the protour riders accountants put normal speedplays on those said bikes :)

Heck, I would upgrade to an ebay carbon frame for <$400 (delivery included) and get a pair of regular Nashbar aluminum clipless pedals, loose a couple of pounds and boom, better performance-power transfer and a better deal for <$450!

Gain vs lunatic waste ehe that's a way to put it, saving a few grams on the pedals is near worthless I don't think that is going to give anyone the edge.

600 bucks for a pair of pedals whose weight difference from our current pedals is about half a bag of our pee? :rolleyes:
I agree... might as well concentrate on losing weight by spending more time on the bike.. and with the better performance gain, s****** at those riding these pedals as you pass them!! :idea:
