    Do your pedals work on 11spd bikes?

    Many posts ago I had said that we could of done that, but didn't decide to at the time. It was so long ago I think that that was back when we had the stainless cleats.

    Thanks, we're just going to get a new scale as Frank's has broken.

    Could HAVE is what you're trying to make into a contraction, so it's 'could've'...never 'could of'. Jesus, did you not graduate middle school? This stuff makes you sound like uneducated hicks. Put copy w/ errors like that on your site and/or packaging and people will rip you to shreads. Again.

    If you can't figure out the math to convert ounces to grams how are people going to trust your product engineering? Oh...there isn't any.

    Did I say in Post 270 that he should hire some engineers and a good attorney? I will now add a proofreader to that list.

    Like I had mentioned it was long ago. Lots of things are happening. It has been so long that I think when we did it we still had the stainless steel cleats. Sometimes you just have to give people a break and little up a bit, I'm just trying to be as honest as I can.

    I guess that's why I'm a cabinet builder and not an English teacher at Harvard. We're just answering questions as they come in, we are not trying to be perfect in our choice of words. Just trying to get the point across. BTW it appears you've spelled shreds wrong also. But I could be mistaken since I'm an uneducated hick.

    We can convert it, like I have mentioned it was a long time ago and with the stainless steel cleats. Not with the new system.

    Absolutely before we put anything on a label and have it printed, it will be looked at and scrutinized over and over. Only then would we actually sign off on it to print.

    With all due respect to cxwrench, I don't believe he's an English teacher at Harvard, either.
    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    The funny thing is, all the time spent he-hawing about the weight and scales, you could've just calculated it. Your CAD system can give you the volume of your spindles/axles. And your injection molder definitely knows the volume of the cleats.
    This is seriously easy information to get.

    Amazingly, I find it interesting that CX as a lowly bike mechanic and I as another lowly technical person with only an associates degree somehow manage to be able to communicate without simple spelling and grammatical errors, while others I know with masters degrees and doctorates mix up its and it's, your and you're, there, their and they're, not to mention using apostrophes on plural words.

    Oooops, was this a run on sentence??

    You are correct in your statement, especially if you have all the right instruments to measure with. Here is the breaking news the pedals weigh 328g in chrome-moly and stainless steel. Good or bad that is what they are.

    The weight is posted in my response above yours.

    You should make him a member of the design team.

    And I have to ask: Does the pedal weight you report include the cleat?
