|Other than weight, color and price, what are the differences between the 7750 and the R600 pedal? I believe they both use the same cleat and have the same binding mechanism. I'm wondering if the Dura Ace is worth the extra dollars if I'm never going to race.|
|The only differance other than what you said is the bearings are a little higher quality.nm||the bull|

|The Ultegra pedals have a slightly higher stack height, by about 2mm - stack height is the distance between the center of pedal spindle and the sole of your shoe.|

|and the Dura Ace pedals can only be installed with an 8mm allen wrench while the Ultegra can be installed with a standard pedal wrench. It looks like the bearings on the Dura Ace are a bit closer to the crank as a result. I am using the Dura Ace and love them. My brother is going to use the Ultegras.
I would say that they are not worth the extra money unless you 'want' the Dura Ace.

|Recently serviced some ~1984 DA (toeclip) pedals - same bearing design - and they were in perfect condition. They just don't wear out!
I think the DA are worth the extra, but only if you'll keep them for a fair while, and are sensitive to subtle differences.
