I am in the market for new pedals and just want to get a feel for what's out there these days. If you have pedals you love, I want to know what they are!
I have Crank Brothers Candy Ti on my mountain bike and Egg Beater SLs on my cyclocross bike. I like the Candies on my mountain bike, because the platform is nice to have on longer rides. Both the Candies and the Egg Beaters are equally easy to clip into and out of.
On my road bike I have Speed Play Zeros. They are relatively easy to get into and out of. I liked the Look Sprints that I had better, because they had a larger, more comfortable platform, but they were harder to get into at the start of a race or at busy intersections.
Good luck on your pedal choices.
MTB: Shimano XTR SPD. I've used SPDs since 1990. I tried the ATACs, but didn't like em. I can't remember why...
Road: Look KEO Sprints and Classic. Just great road pedals. No frills, and not too expensive. I go through two cleats a year though. Use the cleat covers religiously!
Road: LOOK Keo's
Moutain and Cross: Crank Bros. Egg Beaters (which ever model fits your price range.)
My wife rides:
Road: Shimano SPD-SL Dura Ace
Mountain and Cross: Crank Bros. Candys
