    I'm amazed they are still in business.

    In the tongue in cheek way.
    I mean, CB's only quality product appears to be decals!

    Sorry daves4mtb. CB pedals have to be the WORST. cant think of a worse one. need to be rebuilt constantly, flawed bushing design, non-adjustable spring tension. fast wearing cleats. I have them on all of my bikes about 7 of them and traded them all in for the expensive but extremely nice time ATAC and couldn't be happier.

    They make a pretty nice mini multi tool. I've had mine for about 8 years. I'd never put CB wheels or pedals on my bike, though.

    I've heard about folks having trouble with Eggbeater pedals but I've had great luck with them. I have around a dozen pairs, ranging from the very first generation to the latest cartridge bearing 3 model and they all still work great...YMMV as they say. Did break the chain breaker on a CB multitool tho, and those wheels are scary looking. I'm a hand built, 32 spoke kinda guy...

    Sorry Doc Nothing wrong with CB pedals, have had them on all my bikes and my wifes. Never had a problem.

    Yeah, I did a double take at first then realized they had an appropriate ring on the XO cranks.The article did say she's since gone with the XX1 170 arm crank setup.

    Looks are deceiving, see lots of people running them. The 29" version may be a little more vunerable, but see no issues with the tweener size. Your weight may vary....

    I have had a pair of CB II's in 29inch for about two years. It is the new hub design and they have been smooth, quiet and maintenance free over many miles of dirt, mud and snow. I have Stan's and I have AM classic also but I love CBs the most because they are simple tubeless and run so smooth and quiet. I run UST tires with no sealant and have never had a flat (midwest, not southwest!). The new models with the blue and red anodizing in between the spokes looks killer too. If they use the same hubs the 27.5 version will only be better.
