Look Quartz Pedals?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Well my new RIP 9 is on the way and the only part left to get is new pedals.  I am a SPD fan and will probably go with the XTR pedals.  My experience with Egg Beaters and Time Atac pedals has been less than enjoyable compared to the Shimanos.  Anybody had expeprience with the Look Quatz pedals?  The are super light and appear to be pretty simple, meaning not much to go wrong. 

My love of SPDs comes from the fact that they hold me in for the riding I do, but release quicker than anything else when I need to get out in an emergency.  Any info on how the Quartz compare would be appreciated.  Thanx.

 Considering how fast Look changes pedal designs I think I'd stay away. If I were going to try something new it would be the Mavic pedal. I'm a Time fan. If you don't like them I don't thik you'd like the Looks anyway. Stay with SPD or check out Mavic (IMHO).

Any luck with sorting the wife's Blur?

Epic: Thanks for the reponse.  As for the Blurr, we are now up from 50 to 110 lbs in the RP3, with the Propedal set at #1.  Did a 4 hour ride last weekend. First hour had a lot of climbing and she left the PP on, climbed well but it was beating her up a little, so turned it off and rode the rest that way, which seemed to work pretty well.  It looks like the solution is to forget the PP and ride it at a pressure that lets her just use the VPP suspension all the time.  Hopefully Bushwacker'n PA was right, and we'll just go sans bandaid.

 That sounds more like it. If I were you, I'd send that shock to PUSH once the snow flies.

I m always right :)

on the pedals if the shimanos work why not just keep with them. They are bullet proof, shed mud and dont let you get stuck in them like the crank bros can.

Right again!  I just ordered the XTRs.

I 'broke' one. Spring slipped off the shackle when I tried to force the cleat in.

I guess that makes me kevlar. : )

I'm also a Time pedal fan and user. Dirt Rag didn't give the Look pedals a very positive review and they almost never get negative.
I've even had my Time's totally rebuilt for $40 after years of bashing and even though a rail was bent, it's still worked fine before the rebuild. .Had to cream a rock hard to bend it
