These truly do the trick for a commuting rig. The plastic platform body is just large enough that you can use the bike with a pair of loafers en route to a business lunch. The eggbeater clip-ins are the most simply I've enountered and the clips recess nicely in a pair of commuting shoes. Downside: has not happened to me with these yet, but eggbeaters need maintenance. At the price-point, I tend to use them for ~3 years until they unspool and then replace them rather than follow the maintenance protocol.

They are initially great to use- very good in muddy conditions as there is lots of internal clearance for mud. I love the amount of float too. However, after 2 pairs of eggbeaters and 2 pairs of candies have snapped spindles, I've had enough. I can really do without the injuries they cause, and the associated time off the bike, not to mention the long walk/roll/1-leg-pedal back home when they break. I've heard first hand reports of others snapping plenty of spindles on these pedals as well. I gave up on the EBs while ago after a couple of snappage incidents, and swapped to Candies, but 2 spindle breakages in the past 7 months leads me to conclude that CB pedals have a serious design fault- weak/faulty/undersized spindles. They have all broken in the same place (see photo), so it is clearly a weakness in the design of these pedals. On Sunday the snapped left spindle gave my left thigh a very nasty greasy gouging (see photo) with plenty of blood and a big bruise on the back of my right thigh from the top tube or saddle when I went down. Last September I somehow managed to stay on the bike when a right spindle snapped whilst sprinting up a slope (different set of pedals), but had extensive bruising on the back of my left thigh and some strained arm muscles.
In every case the spindles have snapped when I was out of the saddle riding hard up a slope. I don't do big air- in fact I rarely get the wheels off the ground at all other than for the occasional log or rock, and weigh 78-80kg. I ride 150-200km/week on my Litespeed and Maverick, mainly on quiet remote dirt roads in fairly hilly terrain, and farm tracks with a bit of ST made by the cows. One pair snapped after less than 2500km, and the others at just under 8000km.
Would I recommend them? Only to someone who rode gently around on smooth roads, never pedalled out of the saddle and weighed under 50kg. I don't know anyone like that...

          These pedals were incredibly affordable. They are also very easy to get used to, allowing for much quicker clip-ins than with traditional two-sided pedals.

                I enjoy these pedals immensely. They are easy to get in and out of, especially if you find yourself in a tight spot. I use these for mountain biking and I have had no complaints since I bought them two years ago. These are a good entry level pedal and they can be used with casual show since they have the platform.

                This was my first clipless pedals so I wasn't sure what to expect. They were very easy to install and adjust to my delight. Got about a year of riding in till mud and water eventually accumulated in the end cap. I dismantled the setup to clean up but the locking nut got slightly crossthreaded. Now it's near impossible to get it off so I'll just wait till they start to degrade before getting another pair.

                Still I would recommend these as I still love them and would get another pair gladly.

                  I've had these pedals for about 3 years. I bought them as my first clipless pedals so I could still have large enough platforms to commute without my cleated shoes, and also clip in when I'm going for a ride. These pedals are great for the purpose I bought them for. They have solid construction and clear debris easily. Because of the large platform it can at times be a little more difficult to clip in than with pedals that don't have large platforms.

                    I've used these pedals on two different mountain bikes. They have held up in great condition going on 4 years now! Great quality pedals! If I ever lost these pedals or wanted to go clip-less on another bike I'd purchase another pair of these bad boys.
