    Nice platform, super shallow, one duff bearing (grease?). I've found I prefer OEM pedals that have serrated platforms and short pins, rather than this long (or extra long) pins.

    So tried these pads in the alps and they never faded but when they got really hot they would squeal, not the worst I've heard and certainly not surprising. Would buy again

    Liked the large platform and low profile. But the smooth pedals totally rely on long or extra long pins. Swapped back to OEM serrated pedals with short pins after a botched jump led to shin perforation. Also one stiff bush, probably not significant but irritating.

    Work well with deep carbon, enduro rims. Seal is pretty tight. Unfortunately a stone managed to brake one off ?! May e if it was 7075, 7050 would be better.

    Nice wide platform making you feel very planted, excellent grip from the pins, slim and light weight. They come with short and long pins which you fit yourself. Word of warning - use loctite/threadlock on the pins as if you don't you'll more than likely lose half of them on your first ride (guilty!). I used short pins on my first rude and changed the front row of pins (where your toes are) t

    Needed a set of 29er XC wheels for my Cannondale. Went with Lefty front and Switch rear hubs laced to Stans Crest MK3. Arrived in 2 days, weigh 1600grams, spin true and with 20% discount a bargain for sure.

    i don't know how people can really review bars. they should just work, right? these do just that! but i specifically bought these because they're pretty and match my bike's colour. unfortunately, they've faded pretty badly.

    Posted on 2 August 2016 about Stans Arch Mk3 Rims by J. Edmunds

    5 stars
    I replaced some Ryde Trace Trail rims with these Stans Arch mk3 and I'm very impressed. The Ryde's got badly damaged by impacts that I barely noticed, where these Stans take big hits with no visible damage to the rim. These are 50g heavier than the Ryde's they replaced but they feel massively stiffer and are certainly tougher. After battering them for a month they're on my all-time favourit
