Speedplay vs. Toronto Cycles
It seems the time for Speedplay to launch legal claims again. Back in 2011 many companies and riders (Including myself) experienced Speedplay pushing legal claims on anybody making replacement parts or even selling used items on eBay.
I just received a legal demand from Speedplay that all items related to them be removed. This includes bearings, bolts and all accessories.
Was wondering why is Speedplay the the only company that does this? I never heard about this with Shimano, Sram, Toyota, Honda or any company that makes replacement parts when those replacement parts are clearly aftermarket and in many cases items the original company does not produce.
Any thoughts on this? I can post the claim if your guys like.
Since I have been having so many responses (It seems many end customers have also been attacked) I will start a page on this topic.
