I was aware that there was a difference and that the guts of the Ti and steel spindle versions were not interchangeable, but I'd suspect (from a manufacturing standpoint) that the main body casting would have been the same, perhaps with slightly different internal machining. From all the pedals I've seen the black alloy cages appear to be the same (for both Ti and steel spindled)....

Just looking at a handy Ti pedal (50th) and a couple other SL pedals there is no real visible external difference in the casting or cage.

also: the sr ti spindles and guts don't fit in either of the nr pedals, the 1037 or the 1037a. so there must be more to it than that the same black cage was used for both types. can anyone verify this? e-RICHIE on north main st
