    Speedplay Syzr

    Anyone got your hands on a set of these yet? I use the Zeros on my road bike, and I'd love to have the same feel/float limit on my MTB. http://www.bikeradar.com/news/articl...rst-look-26816

    Floating cleat looks to be problematic.

    How the hell is some site able to "sell" a pedal (of which is allegedly in stock) that, by all other accounts (including speedplay's) is not yet available. Speedplay has, upon request, continued to play the early next season card, for oooohhh, the past several years...

    That looks irritatingly complicated. I'm not sure I even understand how it works. What are the advantages over a "standard" pedal? I guess free-float but this is being compared to the Speedplay Zero and I thought that pedal limited float.

    I have been running Zero a couple of years on my road bike.

    You can adjust the cleat to give you loads, or no float.

    I switched to Speedplay pedals on my road bike recently and love them. Right now I'm using the relatively new Look mtb pedals and love them, but when they wear out the Speedplays would definitely be a consideration.

    For those of you who have never looked, check out the Speedplay website on pedal design and technology. There is a great resource on there that explains pedal technology, the important factors in pedal design, and which pedal systems are most effective. Here is a direct link to it:

    http://www.speedplay.com/index.cfm?f...ome.chooselong

    I found it very informative.

    When I first got my Speedplay road pedals, I found them very complicated to set up and ended up having them help me at my local shop (they were a Christmas gift that I had purchased myself but couldn't open until Christmas so I was trying to set them up on my own on Christmas day).

    But, after a little hassle, I've found it to be worth it.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm looking to purchase them myself. I just wish speedplay would stop delaying the release indefinitely. The only mtb pedals that work for me are the frogs and they're really quite awful. Atleast from my perspective, it wouldn't take much to head in a better direction. That being said...whats up with that website?

    Would like to hear what you don't like about your Frogs. Use them on both my MTB and Road. A great single platform for both types of riding for me. Easy in/out. Yeah, float not adjustable, but I like a lot of float. Don't have much trouble in messy conditions, and have yet to bust any bakelite/plastic either, and I ain't graceful.

    SYZR's look interesting, but I agree with some of the other posts -- cleat looks problematic to me. Frankly, getting tired of waiting to get a look at these as well.

    Not yet, but when my Frogs wear out they will be the next if the Frogs are no longer available.

    First set of Frogs lasted 5 years and were still as good as new, but bike got stolen. New bike new Frogs, so far 2 years.

    Those who say the cleats wear out should realise they are not for running marathon.

    I run the Frog and it's main disadvantage is that you don't step down to engage the cleat to the pedal, you have to slide it forward. The new Syzr is a big departure from last years pedal (switched from Egg style wings to SPD style jaws). I use the Frogs because they outperform every other mtb pedal in one aspect-no rocking. The cleat rides on the pedal body, it does not rely on the rubber lugs to rest on the pedal. The Syzr will be the same in this regard.

    Speedplay are not answering mails about their pedals.

    I still use my frogs for MTB. Just bought anew pair of titanium at a good price.

    Syzr maybe means shut your ? ?

    Something I like the look of with these is the metal-to-metal contact between cleat and pedal, after the retention bars on my Time ATACs wore two grooves in the carbon sole of a pair of shoes.

    UK Speedplay importer *thinks* it'll be this year but they've no firm information either. I assume (hope?) there may be some sort of announcement at Sea Otter (later this month)?

    Anyone hear anything more at Sea Otter? Have heard Speedplay weren't there; also it looks like they delete any posting to their FB page asking about the SYZR.

    Anyone else think this is a bit ominous?

    New question here. Syzr

    Hi All,
    Any word on the new Speedplay Syzr pedals?
    We have No Speedplay Supplyer in New Zealand and Speedplay are not replying to any emails asking about Frog's and Syzr Pedals

    From Speedplay's Facebook page, though this was a couple of months ago:

    Thank you for your interest in the SYZR. We had hoped to be delivering them by now. We are working diligently on the final details to ensure the system meets the high standards of performance and functionality that Speedplay customers have come to expect from our products. We appreciate your patience and look forward to updating you when the Syzr is available for delivery.
    I assume they'll be hanging on for Interbike/Eurobike now, if the SYZR is ready for launch.

    I think you can wear out a pair of Frog's before Speedplay comes with any pedals better than these for off-road biking.
    Since 2010 they have been launching only road pedals and as good as they might be they are not worth much out in the wild.
    Just bought a new pair of titanium Frog's, not worth the extra price over the stainless though, so I know which pedals to buy next time.

    No good Thanks

    Thanks for the two replys.
    Speedplay have emailed me with the New Zealand Supplyer? its in Sydney Australia! Why do people think that New Zealand is part of Australia?

    Is it because we how that USA is a small part of Canada!

    The resin part of the Frog pedals is the only one that is wearing out and they should be available and easy to change. I have 2 pair and all they need is grease now and then.
    When I needed a new set of the plastic parts I could not find any, so I ended up buying a new set of Frogs.
    The Syzr are on my wish list, but maybe I will be too old to use them when they finally are on the market.

    they are now in the Speedplay catalogue:
    http://www.speedplay.com/pubs/Speedplay_2012.pdf
    on page 14.

    Seems to me though that I will be faithful to the Frog's. Still have not found anything better.
