Recommended Posts

I had an unfortunate rock strike last night, first ride out on 'new-for-me' Saint pedals. Aaand that was all she wrote. Bent the Left spindle unfortunately.

Anyone has a set of either of these pedals and maybe discarded or breaking up for some reason, I am keen for the left Spindle.

Will pay sweet moneys, or exchange for another desirable bike bit.

please let me know!

Haha snap. I smashed my right one some time ago, bought a set of DX pedals with the intention of swapping out the axle... still haven't got around to it. Mine is however the clipless saint's but the axle's are the same

there are axles are sites like ebay and amazon, but they range from R500-700 which is too rich for me, the DX pedals were R350 here off bikehub

Must have been one HELL of a strike to bend the axle. 

Put my set through at least 8 years of abuse and they only needed a service towards the end.

That it was. Only a blessing not going for a loooong hard fall, considering this was on Armageddon 7.

I was also hoping for around 8 years, got one ride, making this the most expensive product per km, I think I've ever used.  Close second would be Dissector tyres.... because they don't last.

My most expensive product per km was destroying a R1200 tyre 10km into the first ride. :(

Jis meneer! Ek het dalk iets vir jou. Dis 'n XT stel, waarvan een as gebuig is. Hopelik pas dit, en hopelik is dit die regte kant. 

Sal vanaand in die laai gaan krap.

They seem to have identical spindles. So if you do, that would be awesome!

I have a pair of gr500 pedals I dont use anymore. You can have them for free. They are not mint anymore but the axles are fine. 

That would be rad, thanks!

Go with Neill71's offer first. If those axles don't work then let me know for the 520/540's 

Just remember to pay it forward 👊

Right, my axles seem straight, but  I'm not sure they'll fit. 

I can however lend you a pair of flat pedals to ride with until you can meet  up with Niell71. 

Anything to get you back on that sweet rig.

Turns out I also destroyed the left crank arm in the process... Thread twisted in the arm. First time seeing that for me.
