    recommend a good mud shedding pedal

    I've been running 08 XTR pedals for the past 2 racing seasons. They are great when conditions are dry, but once I run up a hike-a-bike, or dismount in muddy conditions, they are a pain to clip back into.

    Can you recommend some reliable pedals for muddy conditions? I weight 165lbs.

    Thanks

    I've heard egg beaters are the best.

    If it looks like the $3000 bikes but costs less than a decent helmet, it probably isn't a wise investment.

    The Eggbeaters work very well at shedding mud, the SLs and above are easily serviced too.

    I'm another vote for the egg beaters. I got the cheapest ones as a gift a few years ago and have ridden a few muddy 24 hour races with no issues despite the fact I was covered in mud.

    Eggbeaters are about the best mud shedders I have used- but closely followed by Shimano M520's--The cheapest shimano make.

    Normal summer riding and I set the tension up very tight on the pedals- but winter and I slacken them off. I find it is not the pedals though- it is the small pebbles and grit around the cleat- not mud- that causes a problem. Not to the same degree but eggbeaters did not like grit either but they accept more crud than the 520's

    But I have reverted to the M520's in preference to eggbeaters due to the feel of them. I know I have clipped in.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    Eggbeaters, Time ATACs and Frogs all will shed mud well.
