    crankbro's stainless pedals!

    ok, today i got my new pedals, they are orignal crank brothers eggbeaters, circa 2002. when i got them out of the box, i was amazed at how light and small they are, so immediatly i installed them on my bike, and put the cleats on my shoes (with the 15 degree relsease), and all i can say is holy s***......they are soo amazing, these are my first pair of clipless pedals and i love them, my feet stay on my bike after bumps and stuff, they are really easy to release from, and sooo easy to get into, you just kinda rool you foot and they clip...

    for anyone looking to buy a pair of clipless pedals, and thinking about crank brothers pedals, i fully reccomend them.

    thanks.

    Price paid?

    I'm really thinking about switching to clipless, but I have my computer to build too...
    My LBS quoted cleats + cheap-ish pedals $100, is that a decent price?

    Hey, thanks for the update! It's always good to hear from people after they've tried out new gear.

    I use the orig stainless beaters too. Love'em on the dirt. If I take my fat tire out on long street rides the lack of a platform on the peddles get my feet a little sensitive. But mud can't touch them while on the trails. TIP-- spray your peddles with PAM cooking spray and even LESS mud will stick your peddles. Oh yeah, paid $90 at my LBS for the peddles and $45 for some Specialized shoes.

    I'm looking at a set of stainless Candys soon, went out for a day in wet mud recently and my Shimano SPDs were clogged solid. I either had a hell of a job getting in 'em or when I did, I had a job getting out of them . Plus, they're lighter which can't hurt .
    Oooooh yes, one day I will rid the world of showers and the bath shall come to dominate the cleansing habits of all the human race!

    Buy em' at Pricepoint. They bundle cheap shoes in with strapless* pedals. I just got a pair of Mallet-C's (platform with embedded egg beater) with a pair of Sette Enduros. The package was only $110. I'm sure you could get a plain egg beater package for around $90-$100.

    I got the platform because I wanted to the ability to ALWAYS find a pedal and be able to crank without clicking in. Once you get used to these pedals, you'll click in without even thinking about it!!!!

    Just remember, if you're new to clipless, mount the egg beaters so they are "twisted inward" (front of cleat is pointed at your big toe). This will slacken the release angle (equivalent to "loosening the spring" on SPD) until you're used to it. My first outing I mounted them straight and had trouble getting out. Once I pointed them inwards, I have no trouble getting out in a jam.

    I suspect that I'll be able to mount them straight or even switch the cleats (20 degree release) once I internalize the motion. After all, I used to get stuck in my straps too!!!!!
