Why anyone would change their bike fit and potentially introduce issues just to snap into SPD-SL is beyond me. It’s not something I’ll be doing. Sure MTB/gravel/etc have wider stance, but they are other bikes with different geometry. They’re ridden differently.
Having these on my road bikes wasn’t to my liking at all. I’m sure others would find the same if they installed 13mm spacers on each side on their road bikes, for no good reason.
Asking riders to ride a 26mm wider stance-width is a work-around for this design that’s 100% on the rider to ‘deal with’. That’s shit. imo.
These had the potential to be the 10/10 go-go meter for a few years to come. I expected Favero to deliver a better product. My feedback 12 months ago was acknowledged and ignored. Favero went the easy route with a new oil-cap (o-ring), small metal sleeve, and called it a new product.
I love the Assioma DUO… but these? Not impressed.
