This ain't it
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I put about 200 miles on these pedals in less than 2 months. I only have clipped in so far. The left one started to creak after about 150 miles (but only randomly throughout the ride) and then after about 200 miles, the right pedal started to creak. The green and black paint also chip off pretty easily, but that didn't bother me as much as the pedals creaking randomly. Nothing is loose. Tension was easy to change and clipping in and out was easy. They look really nice.
Bottom line: I don't mind servicing parts when necessary, but less than 200 miles in? It's not the cleat either and gease didn't work.
For what it's worth, I have read in other places online about their creaky pedals and know someone else who has the same issue. These are $100 pedals and relatively new. This shouldn't be happening. Backcountry doesn't allow returns after 30 days for used products so now I will no longer be shopping with them if they can't stand behind their products. Most places are 60-90 days. Lame.
