Swansea, Wales, UK
- First tried these pedals in 2002 after having issues with Shimano SPDs not releasing while using in muddy conditions and causing several mishaps, one resulting in knee ligamant damage.
Discovered Egg-Beaters and made the switch after reading positive reviews, due to their 'open cage' design, they performed faultlessly; they also have a lower profile (closer to the shoe) with a noticable power transfer, used them in (Merida 100k XC Marathon Series) competition, to enjoy a 6th place in one event.
They look fancy and are great value too, and in two years, required no maintenance, running smoothly, and like new.
Assumedly the new version have somewhat improved since back then, looking forward to getting the miles in with them once again.
- Could be lighter still, not to be expected at this price thou, a titanium version is available for a few more notes!
