Prize update

Adding to the Giro d'Italia 2005 Fantasy Game prize roster, we have four sets of CSC Team Edition pedals from Speedplay, but that's not all! The suggested retail for the pedals is US $195.00, but we can also include a pair of coffee shop caps with each pair (the cleat protectors), that also retail at $10.00. The pedals come from the Californian company that has been making major inroads into the professional peloton for several years, and the pedals on offer are based on what are being used in this year's Giro by Team CSC.

"We were very pleased that Speedplay produced a special red pedal for the team when we asked,"said CSC Team manager Bjarne Riis. "And because of so many inquiries from followers of the team, it is important that Speedplay will now produce this pedal for consumers."

The CSC Team Edition is the Speedplay Zero. This pedal allows riders to choose either a fixed position or up to 15 degrees of float. Zero pedals maintain the traditional feel of a fixed system while incorporating the advantages of Speedplay X Pedal Systems. Dual-sided Zero pedals offer light weight, easy engagement and disengagement, a low 11.5mm stack height and extra cornering clearance. The engagement mechanism does not rely on spring tension for retention, so you don't have to crank down a tension adjuster just to prevent inadvertent release.
