I needed some new Speedplay zeroes, an aquaintance is selling some Ti ones.

I know they have slightly less Q factor / more cornering clearance, blah blah blah, but is the Ti flex / durability an issue at all? Will I even notice?

I'm well under the weight limit.

No, the spindle does not flex. I started riding X1's when they first came out, I started on X2, and for 15 years I found Speedplays awesome. The only bad pedal they ever made were the X3 and that was because the bushing they used instead of the bearing was garbage.

I've ridden some at a weight of 185 (right up against that limit) and believe that I sensed some flex. Might have been my imagination.

There's some counter-advertising at Coombe.com about titanium spindles. Grain of salt and all, but might be worth a read.

This is one place that IMHO, isn't the best to save a couple of grams.

But if they're cheap enough, give 'em a try. If they don't work out, find another curious someone.
