    Ti spindle Wellgo MG-1

    How durable are the Ti spindles compared to the CoMo spindles?

    Not as durable...Titanium has poor ductile and elongation limits meaning they will snap at lower stresses than Cro-mo. In addition, they will wear out bearings and bushings faster in your pedals. Unless your a weight weenie (and weigh less than say 175#) I'd skip them...not worth the money or the hike back to the car when your pedal spindle breaks.
