ok so i am building a cx bike, nothing too serious, i just want to be able to hit the packed dirt paths near where i work and MAAYBE do a race or two to test the waters, anyway:
i searched pedals, and it seems like majority of cx riders are using a crank bros pedal, eggbeaters seem to be very popular. all the threads reference the eggbeaters (particularly the c's) breaking often.
what exactly breaks?? eggbeater c's off of nashbar are like $50, should i not buy these? will they catastrophically fail on me??
