- Egg beater longevity.
I thought each years model had the same bearings, thus life of the bearings is equally poor/good.
I have many on many bikes and have used them for many years, since they came out and subjectively they have improved in terms of the length of life I get out of a set. So if you buy a new model you’ll do better than when they first came out.Posted 4 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
2/3/11 all have a 3 (or 5, I forget) year guarantee on the bearings, 1s don’t.
No they don’t, or if they do 2pure are just ignoring me. My older ones lasted about 18 months, the newer ones lasted about 6 weeks.
Then I bought some shimano pedals, OK so they won’t work so well in the snow/ice, but they’ll survive the other 51weeks of the year.
Buying rebuild kits costs more than 520’s, and they come with ‘free’ cleats!Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
