    adidas shoes, crank brothers pedals

    Hey all,
    There is a sale on Adidas shoes right now at Performance and hey... I need a new pair. How does Adidas fit? Are they quality? Will they last 7 years like my current pair of shoes?
    Crank Brothers: Is there an advantage to the body of the candy opposed to the openess of the eggbeater. I use my shoes/pedals for everything (mt, road, commute).
    Thanks,
    scott

    Well, as odd as the eggbeater looks like, it looks really great and is comfortable when clipped in. I believe that a eggbeater is the best clipless pedal from CrankBros cause its 4 sided pedal entry makes it easier to clip in, rather then having a platform and clipless combo. Just my opinion.

    As far as the candy goes I got a set and I hated them. The beauty of the eggbeaters is the easy four sided entry. Once you put a body around them they become a little harder to get into. I'm sticking with the regular eggbeaters.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    the velcro strap on the shoe uses a thin string to hold it in place. It will wear out really fast(like a few months).

    The shoes are not in my size so they are out. The pedals though are still a possility. How long has anybody used them? My current shoes are worn out because of the bars on my Time pedals are wearing away the plastic sole leaving way too much play in the connection. Since I'm looking long term, does the body of the candy put less stress on the soles of the shoes? If not then yellow is butt ugly and I'll go with the eggbeaters.

    I have been using eggbeaters for about four years now. I used the candy's for about two months. That was long enough for me.

    If you're pedals are not worn out, don't replace them. Get new shoes/replace the cleats.

    I know... that may seem to make the most sense, but the bars are worn pretty flat and I currently have two bikes, but one pair of pedals, so I'd like to get a second pair. I'm also wondering of the flattening of the time pedals created a sharper edge that dug into my shoes easier... so they all get replaced eventhough I'd rather not replace anything. Concidering how much shoes contribute to a comfortable ride, I'm quite attached to my shoes.
