Been watching a few sets of these on egay.. googling the net for info etc.

They appear (from experiences/reviews) to be not that good but fetch pretty good money on ebay...

What's the thoughts here??

Fancied trying a pair of the GT but, since reading mixed reviews, am not prepared to invest much coin in them...

IMHO don't.

Cannondale octopus pedals were only designed as a freebie pedal on there bikes so customers could ride test ride them, looked better than the plastic pedals.

they look nice but are lethal. especially in the wet.

we had loads left over in the bike shop and used them on second hand bashers for £30 in the end.

they did do an alloy version which did look better but still awful to use.

A workmate has them on his Cannondale. Bloody horrible things, slippy and uncomfy.

i had a pair with my badboy for about 5mins, as they use skate board grip tape over pins they are pretty horrible - as for ebay (where i sold mine for £40) they seem to sell pretty well - never seen a pair sell for less than £30, dont know why.

Thank you my RB bredren . . .

I have some M731's to go on so I'll forget about the octopussy idea (unless a pair go for beans on the bay of E ;) )
