I have read through a good bit of the Assioma MTB Hack thread here, and watched @GPLama’s videos using MForce 4 and MForce 8 pedals for the swap. However, at present these two pedal models seem quite hard to find. Given this fact, are the other Xpedo MTB models (in particular, the CXR models) compatible with the Assioma spindles?
Another CXR user here, I did have an odd issue when tightening the retaining bolt to 9NM where it just dug into the plastic power body (other pedal tightened up perfectly), so watch out you don’t go crazy on it there…
I did the MTB SPD conversion and there’s one thing that I would caution about. If you use them for actually mountain biking then the pedal, including the electronics pod is going to get hit when you have pedal strikes. I hit mine maybe a dozen times on as many rides. That said, they still work fine. But, I decided that I really needed a crank based power meter on the MTB.
I still use my converted Assiomas on the road and gravel, since I use the same bike and shoes for both. Though I swap pedal bodies if I do a real long road ride or race.
