    Yeah, the internet definitely isn't full of stories of crank brothers pedals falling apart in minutes...

    Not had any problems with mine.... I have even recently bought a new pair on offer (in RED of course!) to replace the squeaky XTs I can't seem to get along with.

    Ah, you must be the guy who got the decent pair!

    People thought it was just a myth...

    Not tried the superstar nanos, but I've had V12s for a while and get on with them fine, although I have just spotted one has a slightly bent axle! And that's CroMo which would put me off fitting a weaker Ti one to any pedal. (and I wouldn't describe myself as solidly built either!)

    Had the cheaper V8s on for few years too but the bearings needed regular regreasing on those.

    I have to dis agree with you there fella. My experience of crank bros candy pedals is rebuilding them after they fail and the bearing has collapsed.

    Titanium is 20% stronger than steel and crmo is steel.
