We sell the cro-mo 6:1 over the stainless largely because I can't quantify to the consumer what the benefit to the stainless truly is. Both use the same configuration of bushings and bearings. According to Speedplay's website the cro-mo is $125 MSRP and the stainless is $195 MSRP. That is a 46% difference in price. There isn;t 46% difference in performance between them.
I say get the cromoly.

currently using 3 pair of stainless Zeros and one pair of Ti Zeros.
I wouldnt mess with the cromoly pedals unless cost is a real issue. The cromoly ones will corrode on after a couple seasons unless you are METICULOUS in cleaning your rig.
And that's basically what you are paying for when you buy the stainless Zero's.

The stainless versions do weigh 8g less..............

1) I like the look of the machined spindles;
2) The stainless material Speedplay uses (17-4) is top notch;
3) I was worried about rust long term;
4) Cromo made in Taiwan, stainless version made in the U.S.
Good when you have riders who need different stance widths to maintain alignment.
in the end it's hard to argue with Tom's post about the value proposition unless you care a lot about how they look.
