Speedplay X/3(5 posts)

Speedplay X/3Kunfoochi
Jul 29, 2002 8:22 PM
I'm new here and I think O posted in the wrong forum(hot deals) so I'll post again here. I'm also new to clipless pedals, and I've read a lot of good stuff about these speedplays so I'd like to buy them. Does anybody know where I can get these pedals cheaper than Nashbar/Performance has them for? If not, I see there is some kind of coupon from looking down, would someone be kind enough to pass one of these my way? My E-mail address is Kunfooki@cs.com.

Thanks!!:)

Save your money and get the X-2's. The X-3's do not have a good durablility reputation.

Thanks, but I don't have the extra $60....if anything goes wrong I'll just return them.

Most places wont take your pedals back months or years down the road. If you are looking for good pedals for $100 or less, Speedplay probably isn't the way to go. As for the warranty period---I'm not sure, but the fact that Speedplay appears to have removed their warranty link (shows up in google... not on their site), might not be a promising indication. Most pedal manufacturers are well known for chalking most failures up to user neglect or misuse.

Look, Time & Campagnolo all make nice pedals that can be found for under $100. Of those, Look probably has the best price/performance.

Xpedia has great prices on Look and Time, but shipping is $20. Excel Sports usually is competitive on Look, too.

Any problems with these? I was going to get some for my Road and MTB so I could interchange.
