avoid the candy's! the first time I got wet mud on my sole and had to ride a section unclipped, I rode home and ordered another set of mallets, I walked funny for several day after as well! :oops: they are now relegated to the turbo trainer

As I've strangely never had problems with two pairs of CB pedals I asked some bike buddies about this. Apparently there was a year or two when CB were using low grade bearings and after complaints they eventually improved them.

Just my 2p's worth.

I use Eggbeaters on my xc bike and like them so much I'm getting some Candy's to go on my work bike.
Previously I was a SPD fanboi for many years.

+ Light, simple, sheds mud

- slightly trickier to engage into than SPD


I got the Eggbeaters purely to save some weight over similarly priced SPD pedals, so far no problems at all.
I find the extra few seconds it takes to clip in is balanced by the ease of clipping in when the going gets muddy, SPD's used to clog up every now & then and not let me clip in!

Somebody else who's not tried Time or Look then.

The French really do have the best pedals.

Heck Guys. I'm totally stumped now!

on one hand I'm looking at Atacs, on the other I'm thinking of a throw-away-cheap cheap pair of candys to try!!

One last question... Do the new Time cleats work with the old 90's pedals?


I have a pair of All-Mountain Time pedals I'd consider selling that have about 250km on them.

They're great pedals. But since I've been blustering about Look, I'd be happy to put a pair of them on instead with the platforms. Shout up if you're interested.

Thanks for the offer DBMTB, I honestly can't decide what to do at the moment, I've a few bikes, and I LOATHE changing pedals, so I'm looking to get a few sets of whatever I go for.

Yes, I'm lazy! I also love the idea of being able to run retro pedals on my older bikes, hence the question about the time cleats... :facepalm:

If it helps at all, and it probably doesn't, Crank Bros cleats work fine with Time pedals. My wife loves Time Atacs and when I was a CB devotee I would occasionally sneak a ride on her Yeti, if you know what I mean.
