On my Scale I ride the Ritchey WCS spd's, they do very wel. Do not use the cheaper Ritcheys they do sh#@ with me after several 100 miles.


I picked up some cheaper Ritchey V4, and tried them. I liked them, maybe better when broken in. So far only one time got stuck, but chalk it up to being new.

Those eggbeaters were the smarties by the way.

they have prematurely worn my shoes, and the cleats wear out at lightning speed by comparison with shimano etc and if you use the original egg beater (no cage) your foot has no support which can (in my case) cause knee issues as your foot tips to the side as you push down.



Interesting, I suffer slight knee pain somtimes after a long ride, which started not long after I swapped to egg beaters.

But they are a nice pedal. good click in/out. And not to heavy compared to shimanos
