Re: 9711GS G-CLASS- Discuss
The single post design allows for a short shaft, longer shafts mean more weight. Most standard single pedal designs use a 5.5" shaft which is weighty and there's a lot of wasted space on the shaft.
With a short shaft design weight savings is moot if the cam and beater holder are bulky/heavy. There are some double post designs that employ a short(er) shaft, the posts angle inward... this is a great design that's not really been refined.
