    pedals?

    so im looking at replacing pedals on 2 of my bikes, one is a hardtail fixed fork 29er single speed which im looking at racing along with another hardtail with suspension fork and gearing. so for racing and riding local trails what pedals would be good, eggbeaters or shimano spd? the current ones are platform on the ss and the other has half platform half shimano spd(which sucked in a recent race cause i always went on the wrong side)
    So over all what type are good for a good pedal without breaking the bank(i only race local stuff and dont need carbon or titanium or anything crazy)
    thanks

    I'd reccomend a mid range spd, or Time Atacs.

    Under a certain price--say around 80-100 dollars--I'd go with Shimano. After that I'd use eggbeaters. Personal preference though. They all work.

    I agree with M_S. Under $100, EggBeaters are garbage. After that, they're great.



    Or TIME ATACS.

    I like Time ATACs. The xs version is around $100 or so.... Many biking friends use ATAC, and those that don't use Eggbeaters.

    Time ATACs. I tried numerous different pedals for about a year before i settled with them and haven't put a thought into pedals since.

    I use the shimano SPD's and they work fine.
    Unclip when I want, and they hardly ever let me loose when I dont.

    I like eggbeaters so far. I wanted a solution that I could have on my road bike, spin bike and MTB. There are a few options, but I really liked the design of the eggbeater and its family of pedals. I think SPD is the most tried and true solution out there and you will not have any issues with a mid-level or better SPD pedal. The Cleat on the eggbeater is not very durable so I hear.
