Indeed - about time they made some clipless pedals and a transmission system too, don't you think?

Yummy yummy, want some. They should be on sale early next year but bet you won't get much change from £70 though?

I'm running the Superstar Nano pedals at the moment and cannot fault them.

Expect a mass sale of every fanboys other pedals once these go on sale.


Yes true, and the few other products they have lined up. Like the bash's in the background and the freehub/cassette thing theyre doing, and the cranks.
Yes i like hope, but i hate monopoly companies that flood the market :? wheres the individuality :?
Theyre getting a bit crazy with theyre CNC machines?!

Half expecting the hope boys to be sat on CNC bogs.

Fanboy? Guilty- as charged your honour.

But I'm not sure what you mean by Hope as a monopoly company flooding the market. Please explain.

Do you mean they are the only brand doing CNC/Ano stuff at price levels that are more affordable than Chris King yet without compromising quality?

That thought had crossed my mind too.

Maybe we're just being stick-in-the-muds though?

I mean they are the go to brand for many people. Without considering anyhting else at all. But your point about what they offer seems valid. Theyre not the only ones doing what they do though. (I'm not saying their rubbish either, they have many fans for good reason, me included).

Seems so doesnt it, and im not sure why? Theyre clearly ahead in the market currently but it is evolving at a fast rate - especially for those 'nice touch' bits. Maybe theyre pre empting what riders will be wanting from a brand like themselves in a few months? Or just cashing in on the market?
