First off- I've got to get it off my chest that I used to hate Shimano. I don't like to be a conformist or help out the "big guys" where I can avoid it etc. and sort of automatically lumped Shimano with the bad guys when I started getting more into riding and actually caring what was on my bikes. I was wrong and have found myself switching to Shimano one broken or worn out part at a time... big respect!
Currently, I'm looking to drop 4 (maybe 5) sets of crank brothers pedals to go back to Shimano. I have some very old SPDs that were on my first mountain bike ('96 marin pine mountain that I still have) and another set that were stock on a 2000 homegrown which will both find homes on my commuter and the bike that sits on the trainer. I have two other bikes that I am a little more serious about and will have to purchase pedals for-
I read some reviews stating that the xtrs were more different than just the weight? are the bearings the same? are they the same "use" wise? Any other noticeable differences between the two?
I'd love to hear from others who have tried both etc.
