Check out this new MTB pedal design

Pretty interesting new pedal here. Using some of TIME's ideas and stripping it down to a minimalist piece of equip.

Crank Bros. Pedal

The "Egg beater"...

Hahah, I'm a bit dubious to it's minimalist appearence, but it should keep those weight weenies happy!

Wonder when it's available :confused:

I saw that article the other day. When they say minimalistic design they aren't kidding. I'd be interested in trying a pair out and comparing them to my Time's. The quality should be good as Cook Bros has been around for a long time and puts out fine products.

Interesting look to them. But they only have 6 degrees of float. That's not much (for those of us with less than perfect body mechanics). How much float do the Times have?

Time's have 15 0or 20 degrees depending on which cleat you mount on which shoe (the cleats are designed asymetrical for this purpose). 6 degrees seems pretty common for most MTB pedals. Since the design of the retention is nearly identical to Time's, I wonder if you could use Time cleat's and get more float out of them.

Boomer - the co. making them is CRANK Bros., not Cook Bros. I made the same mistake as you when I first read it. I'm not familiar w/ Crank Bros., are you?
