    My personal favorites are eggbeaters and speedplay frogs. Easy entry with both, eggbeaters seem a bit better in the mud and both are fairly lightweight(if you get Ti version)

    Get the Crankbros Eggbeater SS. They weigh 265g and cost 90$US.

    I've tried most clipless. I don't realy like the Shimano SPD's, they clog with mud very easily. I do however prefer the ability to change spring tension.

    I do like the minimalistic design of the Crank Bros. but prefer at least some platform, so I do like the Candy's.

    Never liked the Frogs. Walking and Hike-a-bike sections made the cleat clog with mud/debris. Did like the engagement/disengagement.

    My favs are still my Time A.T.A.C's. Never clog with mud, small platform, decent weight. Don't like that you can't adjust spring tension, but I've never really needed to.
