Hey, those look good. Why blue? Nice colour...but with brown?
Oh ya..bikes not clothes.
Funny though, my bikes better colour coordinated than I am usually.
Why Porta Potty Blue even.
nice pedals i must say. THe large platform is a blessing when riding unclipped, but i cant say much for color.
Well I was going to add some form of color, and blue seemed to work. the blue is a different shade than it looks. They're actually a much deeper blue than what they look like, I tired taking several pix, and you just can't do it while using a flash Anyways I'm about to commute to my job so I will see how they ride on the way there! Anyone got a set of cleats they wanna sell that fit these?

I have eggbeater cleats (same retension mech. as the mallets and all Crank Bros. pedals), but sorry, they're not for sale, they're in use. Let us know what you think, I've been thinking about getting a pair of mallets or candys for my MTB.
i have some. THey take the regular crank brothers cleats dont they? Yea i have some of those, hardly used, i opnly used them for a week until i got road cleats for my shoe so yea.
OK so I got my commute on this morning and then this afternoon and I am impressed. The engagement and disengagement are so much smoother and feel like you're sliding out of them like you SHOULD yet on the backside of my stroke my foot is held on quite well. I hopped off this one curb when my shimanos liked to let my foot pop out on and the mallets held my feet well. The only thing I dislike about the mallets or I guess I should say the cleats is that they do not have any adjustability. The cleat is super wide and MUST be placed in the center of the shoe. The shimano cleats had some movement which I liked, but the mallets seem to fit well where they are...maybe the cleats don't need any adjustment?
yea thats one down about CB stuff is theres no adjustement. I have no issue with it, just put the cleat with two circles on the right and your set.
I opt'd for the 20 degree release.
I know when i first got my Candy SL's, i did not read the part where it said you have the option of 15 or 20. So i put it on 20. Im thinking that caused a few extra scars
the whole way out of my subdivision I was clipping in and out so that when I got to the stoplight I didn't just fall over.Originally Posted by phantomcow2
Unless, I understand you wrong. The float in the pedal should prevent this from being an issue.Originally Posted by PWRDbyTRD
pix coming up to show you the issue...
as you can see the shimano cleat is moved to one side, as with the crank bro cleat...it can't be.
I never saw it as a problem, maybe it has to do with my shoes. It hurts to think about having my feed being able to move side to side. I like them square on the pedal
they don't move side to side man. You can slide the cleat however you want it, then lock it in place. I guess you have to have used Shimano pedals to get it.Originally Posted by phantomcow2
oh lol. I dont know then, i try to avoid shimano. i guess the CB will take some getting used to
Yeah. The Eggbeaters side to side float should compensate for the difference. It may take some getting used to. But you will be happy with the switch.
Okies, I'll keep riding em.
ooo and ride them in the mud. THey are really good sports about that
ugh I remember my shimanos clogged up and I had to bust out my knife and scrape off some to clip in.
