Speedplay Zero Titanium Replacement Spindle Measurements

As part of a bike upgrade I became interested in rebuilding Speedplay Zero pedals (older style). My bit of obsession lead to buying Japanese bearing from Misumi and measuring the original, Ebay and AliExpress shafts to check for proper bearing fit.

I was very happy with the overall accuracy of the eBay and AliExpress titanium shafts. They assembled well and felt very smooth with little to no play in the shaft

First Post

I’m going to try to use this word press site as a way of documenting my projects. First step find a good location to post ZIP files for all the PCB circuits (eagle CAD) and other file types that wordpress doesn’t seem to support. I could try to use my dropbox account but I would end up just deleating the files at some point later by accident.

I would like to document some of my past projects first, so things to come

  • Folding wings made for Burning Man 2009
  • Dumb LED coat made for Burning Man 2010
  • Simple home made Li-Ion 3 cell charger
  • -Work in Progress, Smart LED coat for Burning Man 2011

Let the fun begin
