I just recieved my eggbeater S pedals and out of the box the right pedal has a loose body. That is, the inner clip that rotates around the axel moves feely from side to side about 1-2 mm, whereas the left pedal will only move this distance if pushed hard. Is this normal? If it's not broken it will certainly make for a very chattery pedal when unclipped.
I noticed this about my new Cook Bros Eggbeaters as well. I chose to ignore it and until now haven't thought about it. Mine moves maybe 0.5-1.0mm and it rattles only slightly when clipped out. When I'm clipped in it feels great. This is on the right pedal - left one inner cage doesn't move at all.
Thanks for the help. I wrote to Crankbrothers, they replied very quickly. Apparently it is normal for the inner part of the clipping mechanism to move. They did offer to have the pedal rebuilt if i don't like the ride. I'll put it on the bike and see how it rides.
