These arrived from stateside.

Very nicely made - heres the write up:

Grafton Excelerator step-in/clipless pedals

This is a pair of Grafton Excelerator pedals. From talking to guy that designed and made them (John Grafton), there may have been two production runs of this pedal before he closed his shop in Durango, around January 1st, 1997.

They were $250 and about 250 grams.

These pedals never really arrived in mass on the retail scene.

They are the double-sided ATB model.

The axles are titanium, standard 9/16" size.

The bearings were replaced recently with ceramic hybrid bearings.
