They don't seem too expensive, pretty light, and the (admittedly only three) reviews on the page are
positively glowing.

Fiance is telling me not to bother spending that much money on pedals ($45) and says I shouldn't
get into the weight comparison game because it never ends. I, however, am fascinated by the
"practically glued my shoes to the pedal" reviews, and they're only $15 more than the Zuzus
previously mentioned ...

Any thoughts on the brand, the store, or the model?

A friend has a set, loves them. They are noticeably lighter than most flats, and traction on them is
as good as any flat I've evr tried.

Rubbish.

Not rubbish.

Take all reviews with a pinch of salt.

Sorry they seem to be a US brand so I can't help you. If you want any further recommendations I use
Easton Flatboys which I find to be excellent.

I'm confused ... I see the "Here's a pic" quote but never saw a post with that line originally in
it. Maybe my server is being funky.

And it's monique =P Definitely not monica.

Well, I got shipment confirmation -- the pedals should get here Thursday. I've been fantasizing
about them more or less non-stop -- my first component purchase! I even had dreams last night about
learning to bunnyhop with them ...

My fiance objects to various things I say about him, too, but he doesn't seem to care enough to
post corrections, so *shrug*. Not that any of you mind if I assassinate his character in a
public forum =)

No brakes? No ... brakes? How does that work? I hope his poor graduate student self can
afford a helmet!

I just forwarded his post to your above address (is it valid?), so pic should be attached.

take my advice ladies... say only nice things about your partner in public, save the bitching for
private pms sessions with close friends. ( 24 years next anniversary...)

Well, if anything I've said about him here thus far truly counts as not-nice, I'd be surprised. But
truly, that sounds like a good principle (pal? I never remember) in general -- short-term public
venting is rarely worth the long-term consequences.

Hey, I'm amazed you remembered some variant of my name at all =) Newsgroups can be confusing places.

Not a big deal. Unless you do it again, of course =P
