I've raced Eggbeaters for a couple of years. No real probs -- they work. Every time I watch a race and see guys remounting onto Candies or Times I think that it must be easier to hit those pedals, tho. Anyone switched? Big difference?
Can you feel the difference between having the platform vs not?
there are times when i feel like i can feel a tiny difference, but it might be psychological. i've been lucky enough to never have had hot spot issues with eggbeaters, even on centuries. so i'm probably not the best guy to ask.
