    The first pair I got in Feb 2007 and they've been great since the original problem of the bodies seizing up; something to do with the axles being ever so slightly too large.

    The pair that gave me problems were bought in October 2007 and I finally got a refund about 3 months ago. At first, I thought that I had just been careless when putting them on the crank, having crossed the threads. Then I did it a second time and called Burgtec about it. These pedals had also had the problem of the axles seizing and also turned out that there was a sizing issue with the diameter being ever so slightly too large. Burgtec denied that the threads had the same problem, which I suggested had caused them to damage the crank arms. I left it at that and managed to get them on a new set of cranks on my trail bike. But then when I got the Nicolai I put a new chainset on it and that's when I found I couldn't even get the pedal thread to engage with the crank arm. At that point I sort of put my foot down and got a refund.

    TLR, Ian you can't have mag axles they would snap! Mag body would be possible with Ti axle.

    If this is true I'l be gutted after only buying a pair this week!!!

    you call that clean? Just as well your pics are all fuzzy!

    just a thought, with all the carry on you're having with pedal strike. Are you bashing the big ring at all?

    If anything I found the BB too high on the AM but that was running a Fox DHX so maybe blowing through the mid stroke is less of an issue with that damper than with the Monarch.

    cheers ozzy - the red bits are going however - i'm not into colour accents so it's going max stealth. i'll be removing the graphics too at the weekend. god knows what i was thinking with the awful red seat clamp and the headset was a leftover from my Turner dis-assembly
    can't wait to get it innocuous looking and unrecognisable.
    i have however noticed a bit of axle play in the front drop-out on the new 2009 36 TALAS.........worrying really, and only able to dial out if i torque up the axle bolt too tight for my liking
    will post on the shocks forum for advice...

    Ok, I kow its awesome, but I don't like all the black around the cranks, it spoils the colour fest of everything else.

    And yes waiting suxs, especially if you have 6 weeks longer to wait then you thought haha, enjoy riding it

    Hmmm thats a tough one, the red will be hard to match to the others but with the white one there might be to much white (says the person with a white frame and forks), however I reckon white.... can't believe how well the frame colours came out tho.

    CCDB now arrived
    Took about 8 hours of riding to get it nearly dialled in, feels a wee bit too plush statically, but is coming in nicely on the trail......Weekend up at Golspie trails will dial in the beast even betterer

    yea the black thing covering the gold... on mine with the TI spring, the spring when bunching was rubbing on the shock.. producing some skuffing... so CC sent me a plastic sleeve to protect it which I have done. Mine is one of the retro ones with not in gold so it is not so noticeable..

    TLR I think you should post the two pictures of your (very lovely) AM here side by side and do a spot the difference competition!

    Have you really changed the CK headset from red to black because you preferred the colour? LOL and I thought I was the only one that anal! I did the same thing with my white spesh - changed from a silver to a red, because (and only because) I preferred the colour. Mind you that was before the economy collapsed and I found out I was going to be a dad in September. Frivolous spending like that has all but dried up.

    So what else has changed? The rear wheel is now an 819 (did you trash the DT Cheese?) you've got a Gamut bash guard on there, a different saddle, obviously the CCDB and possible the brakes have gone from V2s to Mono M4s? Oh and the Nicolai sticker has gone from black to silver, which definitely gets the thumbs up.

    You must really like those Easton Flatboys though because they've obviously been used quite a lot and you still haven't replaced them yet.

    Very nice all round.

    Updated pics , new bash ring fitted . The ano matches the Nicolai "extra love" red perfectly . Price was no object BUT they are probably the cheapest bash ring available too . I decided aginst the original choice of a white e.thirteen , and most of the others come in black or black .

    Oh , and brake lines shortened too.

    dogrock - size L will be fine, but if you're not climbing, why select an AM ? not a FR ?
