Pinkbike Product Picks
i really doubt that its a teflon coating, more likely CVD TiC.. and btw MoS2 is more slippery than PTFE... but i agree, i too prefer nickel coatings, i think that a nickel-phosfer-MoS2 (electro-less) composite coating would be optimal. tough i not sure if it would be economical for a massproduced item (requires alot of proces control)

Specialized Prototype Pedals
"these don't make use of a threaded nut at their outer end to attach them to the pedal body. This means that the axle uses a smooth, tapered design all the way to the end, making it much stronger than an axle with threads cut into the end of it" my BS detector went off several time reading the article.. like 5mm of tread at the end of the axle makes it weaker. the same with the measurement of thickness and the bad mouthing of DU bushings. one long Specialized ad, PB please don´t act like a direct extension of the Specialized marketing deparment. Im also a bit worried that the only thing holding the needlebearings inline with the body i the hinge and the small spike. when loaded from the hinge side, all the stress is concentrated on the hinge itself. i could be wrong, (i proberly am, im pretty sure Specialized have made lots of IRL and FEA tests), but without a picture of the internals it hard to say for sure. besides that, after getting rid of my vile, i think that they are really cool. sure looks like 2011/2012 is gonna be the year of the platform pedal, about time! ;)
