I switched to these gorgeous “black beauty” magnesium QU-AX pedals, as well as switching the dual-hole cranks to single-hole 125mm versions.

Because I can’t resist the lure of titanium, I opted for the titanium-core model, rather than the cheaper CrMo-core model.

They weigh just 100.8g each, which is almost half the weight of the standard plastic QU-AX pedals (197.1g).
