Crank Brothers Egg Beater 1 Pedal - Steel $59.95
Make omelets or tracks in the dirt.
Sure, you could make omelets in the morning with the Crank Brothers Egg Beater Pedal, but wouldn't you rather go slay some muddy singletrack? Thanks to its infamous open-body design, the Egg Beater 1 Pedal sheds mud so well you won't ever have to worry about not being able to clip-in, no matter how sloppy things get. Adjustable release angle (from 15 to 20 deg) means no premature-ejection when bunny-hopping a downed-log, and a forged Cro-moly spindle ensures the Egg Beater 1 Pedal stands up to several seasons of use and abuse.
- Cartridge bearing seals out dirt and keeps the Egg Beaters spinning-smooth
- Stamped steel body and wings keep durability top-notch
- Stainless steel 300 Series spring keeps cleat-retention high and consistent
- Premium brass race cleats included

Have you been using them correctly?
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I've heard mixed reviews of the Egg Beaters. I think that they are beginner friendly pedals and easy to use. However, I wouldn't expect them to last very long. I have friends who have had to replace the bearings multiple times in a short about of time. A friend of mine informed me that Crank Brothers sells a shim that you can put on the bottom of your shoe to lift up the cleat so that it has more contact with the pedal. I have not tried the lift, so I cannot say that it works, but it does make sense.
ehhh... don't waste your money
I hated these pedals. could never get in them and the platform is real small. Go spend your money on Shimano XT.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These pedals provide the simplest form available for any MTB pedal. Simple to use, to clean, to maintain and very simple elegant design. Weight less than the Eggbeaters 2. Very, very durable and dependable. I love it!
OK for intended use.
Classic Cheap solid pedal. Used for commuting. Rusted pretty fast.
Get the stainless for longevity.
Great option for those new to clipless
This was my first clipless pedal, I still ride it, as advised by fellow riders and my LBS. Very rarely do you find a part thats both light, cheap, and works as expected. I will upgrade to a higher model eggbeater for my next set.
