Part of the problem with eggbeaters is there are so many different "grades" of them. You can get some for $20 and some for $150. You seem to get what you pay for with crankbrothers pedals.

All three sets of Shimano Clipless pedals I've had over the past 18 years or so are still in working order. This year I have been using the XT's with the extra platform and I like them.

I went to Shimano after getting sick of flat pedals again, solid pedals with no issues at all after about 3 months on them. My first ride on egg beaters I had problems.

I've converted from crank bros (egg and candy) to shimano and that works solid for me. I would like to try Look or Time...

Opinions are like pimples, they vary in amount and cover different areas.

There is no or, you're going to lose it.

Will probably help prevent the large gouges in the bottom of my shoes as well. I actually wore through the metal egg beater shoe shields in one season.


Definitely let us know how those hold up. I'm tired of buying new Eggbeaters, but I don't want to totally switch away from them either.


Update: The Candy's definitely hold up better than standard Eggbeaters.
