    I have the pedals

    They came in today. Got back to my place and threw them on the bike. Then went out to give them a test ride. Entry is a really easier, easier than times believe it or not. They are so comfortable that at times I still thought I had the bmx platforms on it. Exit of the pedal is a breeze as well. Overall, this was a very good decision made. This is one person who won't be going back to times .

    I give them my highest possible ranking of five stars.

    Ok, these pedals certainly do rock. Get in is a breeze, they can be simply stepped into. Dismounting from the pedals are just a really slight turn of the ankle, and you are out. These pedals are light yet tough.

    are those the m540's? I have the 505's, which don't have the cage at all. I was very tempted to get the 540's but they were like $15 more and I didn't feel like spending quite that much on pedals.

    oops... sorry to insult your wonderful pedals like that. They looked a bit too nice to be the 540's on second glance, but they do kinda look like the 640's which have a metal cage as opposed to the resin cage of the 540's. Anyway, I like those pedals. How much were they?

    Those look to have the same mechanism as the eggbeaters... Basically looks like an eggbeater with a platform.

    Consider getting the mallets and comparing them to the 505's. You can always recoup some of your $$$ on the pair you don't want. I usally have two or three sets of pedals going (not all at the same time, of course ; )

    Yeah, I kinda like the idea of having a platform along with the clipless... gives me something more to press on and the ability to not be clipped in if I'm just taking a quick run down the street. Plus I've heard wonderful things about the crank bros' retention mechanism.
