    I've never had any problems with sram in the past. I didn't have any problems with ATACS in the past either. But these last few years... Jeez, they're just terrible. Granted I put a LOT more miles in now than I ever have, but less than a year from every set now is just ridiculous. 🙄

    Although saying that, I've also snapped two pairs of Middleburn cranks in the last two years too. 😂

    I only weigh 10 stone!

    After having to get rid of my Hope pedals after just a few months because of knee pain I was forced to go back to ATACS... And now, after less than a year, another pair is fucked!
    Another snapped retention bar!

    I literally don't know what to do about this now. My knees seem to hate every pedal except ATACS, and I don't want to use flats...but the quality seems so terrible now even on the Speciale versions.

    Well I'm still too much of a tart to use them! 😁

    As far as I'm aware they don't always fit so well with bars that have a lot of layback. 🤔

    I'm using Castelli Estremo at the moment, and while they're probably the warmest gloves I've had, I've still had a few days where I was in actual pain even with silk liners. Especially if they've gotten wet too.
    Plus the velcro cuffs are an utter pain in the ass!

    Not cheap, but I'd happily pay more if it means less agony.

    Has anyone tried the 45NRTH gloves? My hands get so bad I'm actually considering the Sturmfist 4 which is supposedly rated - 9c to - 18c
