    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.

    I heard it was an addition to the range (but that may have been from you!)

    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!!!

    few things in the near pipeline which will transform it's duty, can't say too much, but expect substantial changes for a slightly different duty to Enduro style

    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...
