FEAR ME ^
Thats only for 1, so 312 a pair, not to bad. 99 grams lighter than odyssey plastics. So a quarter pound difference. Now lets see how well they hold up.

My Wellgo MG-1 with Ti-spindle is 15g lighter and don't look like a china toy
I'm not sure I would trust a Ti spindle any more than the spindly thing in those colony pedals. And I sure as hell don't need to dump $120 for a set of pedals! :crazy:

I always bend pedals, seems like I will bend them after one week, pretty much on the dot. I will never spend more than $20 or $30 on pedals again. THe wellgo MG (19.99) or an of the plastics is where I'm at. $120 for pedals is crazy even if you can afford them.

If its a high grade Ti then it will be stronger then cromoly.
I'm not sure... I've read a bit of debate about the strengths of both, and Ti seems to come out a bit worse for stuff like pedal spindles.
Strength to weight ratios have Ti out front, but in real life application it's a bit brittle and more likely to break. Of couse if the alloy is crappy for either one, you are screwed. :D
