Profit plus Record vs ChorusNoam
Nov 6, 2002 7:20 PM
Hi there
I am looking to buy a new pair of pedals. My bike is a mixure of Chorus and Record components. The price differences btween the two at Parker International is over 40 Sterlling Pounds.
Can I have your input on the pros and cons of each.

The Records are lighter. If I remember correctly I think it would work out to about pound a gram. Operationally I don't think there is much difference.

I believe the major differences are that the Record Pro-Fit has a Ti axle and Triple sealed bearings and the Chorus has a steel axle and only double bearings. The weight difference is about 60 grams.

I am a strong 195 lbs rider, so I prefer a strong steel axle, maybe I am parinoid, but I have a Record bike with 3 Chorus up/down grades. I have an all steel cassette, The Ti Chorus seatpost and the Chorus steel axle pedals. I know that early Ti pedals had weight restriction of around 170-180 lbs, and maybe they have improved, but I am not willing to bet my teeth on it.
