On my recent adventure a couple of weeks ago, I lost a screw and another part on one of the cleats.  Even though Wahoo owns Speedplay, it decided to stop carrying the Frog model and so cannot find a set of replacement cleats.  Wahoo also decided to stop supporting the X Series, and I do have an extra pair of new/unopened cleats (V.2) for this model.  I consequently am looking to buy a pair of Frog cleats or swap X Series cleats for these treasured Frog cleats.

You have good taste.  My knees like them and I have been using them since they came out. I have broken 3 or 4 sets of petals. The nylon just does not hold up to rocks and hard falls like a mountain bike pedal should.

The big problem with the frog cleats is that they wear out relatively quickly - even if you keep them cleaned and greased - not easy on a mountain bike..I just mounted my last pair of new cleats in September.and will still have still have 3 sets of usable Frog pedals, in about 4000 miles, when these cleats wear out.

 Although the zeros are fairly good, I have given up on Speedplay for touring and mountain biking.. I have  switched my indoor training shoes over to Crank Brothers, and I hope my knees get used to the reduced rotational degree of freedom by the time my last pair of frog cleats lose their grip..
