i swapped my Shimano DX platforms for a set of magnesium dk iron crosses.
these things are heavy,even the mag.version is heavier than the alluminum Shimano’s i traded.
i know that magnesium isnt very strong when it comes to slamming pavment but i just wanted to check them out and they are quite grippy.the pins on the Shimanos were getting all messed up because they are such skinny little things,and replacement pins are impossible to find so i figured i’d just go for it.
im going to proceed to beat the crap out of these DK’s for awile and then i’ll post a reveiw in Checkernut’s review thread.
When you give the pedals an overhaul check how many bearings they have inside. Some of the heavy duty BMX pedals have like two or three sealed cartridge bearings per pedal. Standard sealed bearing platform pedals usually just have one cartridge bearing and a bushing. It would be good to know what they have inside of the Iron Cross.
I have been trying to learn what size the Azonic-A-Frame platform is. I did not find this information on Azonic’s website and Azonic Europe never responded to my e-mail.
Would you let me know, please?
I just measured my iron crosses they are approx. 9.5cm square. or about 3 3/4 " That is just the size of the platform, if you count the bit of the spline (from side to crank) they are another 1/2" wide or 1.2 cm wider
