Eggbeaters are great pedals, but since day one I've felt like they were a little too wide for me. I have had knee problems almost every time after I did power workouts. So I thought I should try the short spindles, and got them.
It's too soon to tell as I have used them for only 3 rides, but so far I liked them a lot. First time I clipped in, it felt much more natural than before. I did an easy ride first just to make sure my knees are ok, and then the second time I did some power climbs and a couple of sprints. No pain on my knees yet (and hopefully never again ).
The installation was only a matter of minutes. I love the simple design of these pedals. Here's a few pictures:
