Shimano Deore AX (Dyna-Drive) pedals. used $90.00

During the 1980s Shimano was a fearless innovator and marketer. The company was devoted to increasing rider efficiency and stability. One results was the AX component series. The pedals had a very short axle. That change allowed Shimano to lower the pedal platform. The rider could then use a smaller frame and have a lower profile. He was more stable and enjoyed lower wind resistance.

The pedals used a big 1" x 24 tpi axle and required a special crankset that accepted the larger diameter pedal axle. The market did not embrace this innovation and Shimano discontinued the design around 1983.

The Deore group was made 1980-1983 and was specifically designed for touring.
