Want to know a secret? The Crankbrothers Eggbeater 2 Pedals are a few grams lighter than the Eggbeater 3 ... and less expensive. Sounds like a great value. The key differences are the stamped and plated, steel retention wing and bushings instead of needle bearings on the crank end of the pedal/spindle. In essence, they're functionally identical to the old Eggbeater SL and weigh within six grams, but they're $20 less expensive. A great value indeed.
Eggbeaters are also some of the easiest-to-use clipless pedal systems around. Thanks to the four-sided wing of the Eggbeaters, it's literally impossible to not clip in with lightning quickness as soon as the bottom of your shoe hits the pedal. The wing rotates either forward or backward under the pressure of your foot to quickly and smoothly engage the cleat bolted to the sole of your shoe.
The Eggbeater 2 employs investment cast stainless steel for the main body of the pedals, and the wings are stamped and chrome plated steel. The spindle is forged from super-strong chromoly steel, meaning that anyone can use them as there's no weight limit.
The brass cleats for the Crankbrothers Eggbeater 2 Pedals are small so they recess flush with the tread on the bottom of your shoes for easy walking. They're also designed for two release angles -- 15 degree or 20 degree. The release angle depends on which cleat you bolt to which shoe. Crankbrothers recommends the 15 degree setting if you're new to clipless. Otherwise, the 20 degree configuration will give you greater mobility on the bike without the worry of an accidental release. Bushings and cartridge bearings will keep the Eggbeater 2 Pedals spinning smoothly. And when the time comes for an overhaul, keep in mind that nobody else's pedals are as easy to service as Crankbrothers' pedals are.
