    Argyle has it.

    Also, CB are launching a zero degree float cleat. I predict these will be in store in about 8 – 12 weeks time.

    This may please you.

    argyle – spring swap? send back to 2pure?

    I think somebody had a home made tensioner to pull them back in a bit?

    I vaguely remembering somebody did a DIY spring tension fix ages ago… anybody have the technique? foot lifting out on my commutter this morning and i know it’ll just get worse.

    and no, it isnt the cleats.

    and yes, I like them and havent had any problems with them.

    and no, I am not buying spd’s.

    ;o)

    It was me. I made a little tool to twist the spring back in to shape. I’ll see if I can find the pictures or the thread when I get home, if no one else finds it in the mean time

    thanks midland, thats what I wanted, to see if easy to make myself as i have about 3 pairs on the shelves waiting for this repair.

    EDIT: long term how have they lasted?

    so graham, does modifying your springs have anything to do with exploding pedals?

    This was it.

    Modifying or resetting the springs has got nothing to do with pedal failure.
    I’ve snapped three egg beater spindles, not just the usual bearing failure that everyone gets, but actually snapping them in half.

    I don’t know about the long term results of resetting the springs. I’ve given up on Crank Brothers and gone for cheap Shimano pedals now so I can just treat them as a consumable. When the bearings fail, I’ll replace the whole thing.

    ooooh interesting. I need some new cleats.
    but isn’t the beauty of CB, the float they give you?
