How much float do they have? Can't seem to find the details anywhere
CRC Sale Eggbeaters
ive run crank bros for years and only broke one. Hit it against a rock and snapped a wing. Ive used candy eggies mallets and the road ones ive eleven pairs in the household and all goin strong might order some of these cheap ones for spare cleats and bits cheers
I just got round to buying, parcel arrived, picked it up and was thinking they feel lighter than I remembered. Opened the parcel and there is just one?
I know they were cheap but are CRC crazy enough to sell single pedals? How did they know which side I wanted?
The invoice says Qty 1 - £20, but that can't be right can it?
RRP £54.99 Save 64% - Each?
Go with the Candys as the Eggbeaters tend to fall apart unless you maintain a strict maintenence schedule.

Don't agree, mine have been on for 3 years, with an occasional spray of oil and one squirt of grease. Which now means I have "Murray Walker'ed" myself and one will fall apart tomorrow, bugger...........
got a set here with cleats never even opened the packet got em with a complete bike i bought
15 quid posted for those that like em , ill stick to XTR and pd 520s my self -
Great pedals been using mine with no problems since day one.
Even when the bearings are on the way out a quick spurt of grease will pack them out for another ride.
On two occasions when I've rebuilt them the internals had disapeared but they had still staid in one piece.
I have been using Candys recently, in fact I've got a four year old pair that have never been serviced and they've done a fair few 24 solos and just finished a season of cross.
So yes all good, and i've suffered two pair of budget Shimanos fall apart.
I do treat my Eggbeaters as an XC pedal though, they've always seemed an odd choice for the more freeride type bikes.
the above are sold to njee
I took a gamble and ordered 2 sets of candy c's. One for current ride and one for the impendind arrival. Tried them out at the weekend, seem ok - click in isn't as positive as my old time atac xe but once in they're fine. Left cleat needs tweaking for comfort but otherwise jobs a goodun. Two sets of pedals and cleats for two thirds of the cist of one new set of time!
Becareful what you say!
A snapped spindle in the middle of the Ulu is nothing to be laughed at.
I had mine rebuilt at Mayhem each year and yet one Egg Beater "let go" & left me stranded 1/3rd into the 100 mile race up in Kielder.
It cost me heaps, as I spent ages (40 mins) looking for the outer casing, then I bought a set of flats 1/2 way 'round at a Mech' 1st Aid station, then I missed the cut off at 55 miles (just!), meaning that all that training had seen me fail to complete the event.
Plus the terrible cramps I endured as I only fitted 1x flat pedal (not to be recommended) at the time.
Take a leaf out of my book and maintain a strict maintenence schedule or it could cost you far more than you ever bargined for!
