    This pedal looks no more fragile than any conventional pedal spindle. Look at a Campy quill pedal spindle sometime. If it engages solidly, I don’t see what could be wrong with the idea. It looks like it is simple and can be disassembled easily and quickly for service and cleaning. (Unlike the messy SPD design.) I’d like to try them out. Another advantage; they would be even worse pedals for someone without the right cleats, like a bike thief.

    Looks very cool. I wonder however about the pedals ability to clear itself of debris. Also, the spindal is very narrow, which poses a possible problem with foot fatigue. For most people, having a platform of some sorts helps relief foot stress. I would love to give them a shot and see. Maybe I’ll donate.

    I don’t see how it could be worse for debris than SPD pedals. Because it’s really just a spindle, shoes with pretty stiff soles probably work best.

    Awesome design, looks simple but effective.I cannot see how the pedal will collect much more debris in comparison to a conventional pedal.Hope you get the recognition you deserve.Well done.
