    Brakeless+clipless crew: What pedals do you use?

    And how often have you accidentally pulled out of them?

    I tried Eggbeaters Candy for a week and unclipped twice.

    Eggbeater Candys. I've unclipped a couple times but only when my cleats were super worn. Timw ATAC are supposed to be better.

    crank bros candy's and crank bros quattros. pulled out 3 times (one landing me in the emergency room), but it was completely my fault for not paying attention to the wear on my cleats. clipless are great, just be vigillant about replacing cleats if they even **SORTA SEEM** to be worn.

    nope, not once, and plenty of skips (not too many skids tho).
    i'm also not huge, so that makes a difference.

    959's and my right foot unclips every now and then ... I'm huge. Last time it happened going down hill in to a redlight intersection in the rain right at the bottom, managed to keep my sh it together though ... I want to switch to Time ATAC carbons ... at some point.

    riding the same set of ATAC carbons for the past eight years (holy crap!). No problems. Almost made the jump to eggbeaters, but my friends that put down a lot of miles have had problmes with them eating through the sole of their shoes.

    Eggbeater candies, pulled out I think 3 times now in the last 5 and a half months and both the cleats and pedals were brand new when I got them. Once i even had a screw fall out of my cleat so i couldn't pull out. That was embarassing. I'm scrapping the crank bros for times when i get the fancy. I kinda prefer the double straps now anyways.

    Time ATACs. Never had any problems. I've seen some goofy stuff happen with the pedals that made me nervous, though. (Care to elaborate on this, adamkell?)
