I just got this in the mail yesterday, with the usual extra-speedy delivery, and I am one happy camper! I first noticed the beef-factor of this thing when I pulled it out of the box and ripped it out of the plastic wrapping it was in, this wrench is a behemoth!
The handle being as thick, long and round (phrasing!) as it is really makes a difference in leverage and strength in compassion to the smaller one. I've stripped the metal teeth on the smaller one, but I can tell that won't be happening with this one! I've already switched out pedals on two bikes and it works so smoothly! I've got a compact and a standard front ring and my hand is clear of the chain and teeth by more than a fist!
As always, specialty tools such as for bikes are over priced. But this one is less overpriced than expected.
This, compared to the old style wrench, is much easier and works a lot better. This is the pedal wrench to buy, for sure.
