    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.

    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...

      Comments about CrankBrothers Crank Brothers Candy 1 Pedals:

      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.

        I use these pedals to ride 30-40 miles a few times a week. The release is not adjustable even though the instructions for setting up the pedals says they are.

        Comments about CrankBrothers Crank Brothers Candy 1 Pedals:

        Pedals are fairly light for the price point, function well after break-in (springs take several rides to loosen up so that clip in is easy), and offer a small amount of float. They do require frequent preventive maintenance if used in wet conditions. Keep check on the tightness of the nut that holds the pedal body on to the pedal, as it can loosen and cause the body to come off the spindle. These are basically a short term product if used in harsh conditions, as they wear out fairly quickly versus some others such as Shimano, Speedplay, Time, etc. For MTB use, they can be easily damaged if they strike a rock. I've ruined a couple of sets this way over the past couple of years.

          My first non-SPD pedal and I couldn't be happier. Very simplistic and lightweight. Secure, reliable entry, comfortable amount of float, no unplanned releases. Cleats seem to be wearing well. Have not used in mud yet...

            These work well. However are mostly comprised of plastic so longevity may be an issue. The pedal works well, has a platform and easy entry and exit, great for beginners.

            tad difficult to clip into vs eggbeater

            By Chad105

            from Temecula, CA

            Comments about CrankBrothers Crank Brothers Candy 1 Pedals:

            I switched from a standard crank bros egg beater pedal to these and found they are a little difficult to clip into since you have the composite body to mess with. Although, when you have to quickly stand on your pedal they are much more stable than my eggbeaters (you won't roll off the pedal). I use mine for all mountain/XC stuff and am satisfied with them. I think if they fixed the composite body to the pedal so the pedal clips were in the same spot everytime it would make them easier to clip into, but there must be a reason why they don't do that.

            Comments about CrankBrothers Crank Brothers Candy 1 Pedals:

            These were my first clipless pedals, and I've since switched to Shimanos. I liked that they were easy to use--you can click in and out easily--and the platform is nice for some additional foot support.

            I gave them up, though, because they didn't last for me. One side of the spring broke pretty quickly, and sometimes striking a log with the pedal would cause my foot to disengage.

            Also, I wish that Crank Bros would make the spindle compatible with a regular pedal wrench. As is, you have to use a 6mm allen wrench to get them on and off, but the pedal wrench gives you a lot more leverage.
