Made it in another publication

We were fortunate enough to make it into Cycling Weekly tech of the month column. Where it was a good review, it was not over the top good. She had her own opinion on what she felt the pedals looked like, which is fine. But they are happy with the functionality of the system. She had mentioned that they were long in length, they visually look long, but when you are clipped in they do not come close to sticking out past your shoe. Here is a photo of the bike on a lean angle in the worst possible position and the pedal is still not making contact with the payment. No one would be in a full turn pedaling at power with an angle anymore than this. I've literally tried to make contact with the ground and I have not succeeded. I'm not saying it can't happen, I just haven't been able to make it happen.

Wish us luck on this adventure.

More might wish you luck if you stopped eroding any remaining good will with spam posts advertising your pedals.

I get phone calls very day where someone "tells me a story" about how my car warranty is about to expire, and I should buy an extended warranty from them.

You're trying to use the forum as your marketing grounds. You've posted multiple times about coverage through this outlet or that outlet in a transparent effort to get more eyes on your product. You're doing that again, while also attempting to rebut one of the perceived drawbacks mentioned. If that's not a sales pitch, I don't know what is.

Solicitation
Please refrain from using Bike Forums to promote your "crowdfunding campaign" (kickstarter/indiegogo), commercial services/website, or to advertise items for sale. If you are a Premium Member (Titanium or Red Star), you may attach a short link to your own blog or personal site within your profile or signature to your market items in our marketplace forums here (private sales only, no ebay auctions or online storefronts), or to a noncommercial website that you specifically own. Free members are not allowed sig links for their sites.
Spamming
Spamming is the multiple posting of an identical or similar post on one or more of our Forums. Spam is also flooding the Internet with many copies of the same message, in an attempt to force the message on people who would not otherwise choose to receive it. Most spam is commercial advertising, often for dubious products, get-rich-quick schemes, or quasi-legal services.

The above post explained it well. Bike forums is advertisement free. That is unless you want to become a sponsor. Thread closed.

Thread moved to Bloggers since it's "not a sales pitch"
