Crankbrother Mallet C???

Anyone using these?

I've always used Times (for the last three years)...I was looking at the Time Z-Controls, then saw the Mallet C's.

They look better, easier to rebuild and the replaceable "teeth" look more appealing.

Anyone Opinions?

Yea are these pedals supposed to incorporate platoform pedals which are compatable with clipless shoes? I rode the Time Z-COntrols and the platform really wasnt effective.

The only downside that I see is that you lose the 4-sided entry.

Well - I've read the FAQ and the product install sheet (PDF) on the site...and you actually still do maintain the 4 sided entry because the Eggbeater part of the pedal actually rotates freely within the platform.

I should have posted the link - here it is:
