RECORD: the supreme achievement (LESS THE IFFY BRAKES AND PEDALS!)

1992-ish ad for the C-Record group focusing on the SGR pedal features. Yes, highly adjustable for that period and the best bearing system to ever grace a bicycle. But still, the heaviest pedals ever made, and a real bear to unclip.

That's right. I said it. After a few weeks of riding them, and after adjusting the rotation exit point to be just slightly before you tear something in a knee or ankle, these things were made for race-day-only! Sure you can unclip after the big race... when you're leaning on your massaggiatore after the big sprint finish on Via Roma!
