i was thinkin about gettin a pair of these for my lefty, but i wanted to know if i could still ride around with flat shoes and not be affected by the eggbeaters. like will my foot be flat on the platforms?

depends on the give in your shoes... i have a pair and i have on the more aggressive plates. in one pair of shoes i grip completely and it's not a problem, in another pair i still stick, but i could slip if i got very wild... the eggbeaters are still raised about 2mm above a level plane made by the plate teeth. it's definately feelable, but i have yet to slip off my pedals accidentally.
i will say, however, that they do not grip as well as straight BMX style flats i've had before... but they are the best flat/clip pedals i have found.
